* Operators Not Listed :
Most cards are badged (labeled) by an operator. The list above is not a comprehensive list of all
operators supplying supported cards; if you have one of the listed
models but have purchased it from a different operator, it should work
without problem in the U132. [Re-branded cards usually state the manufacturer's
name and model number on the reverse label.]
** Sprint S620 Wireless PC Card in U132 Adapter:
The Sprint network requires each wireless
PC card to
be configured before it can connect to the network. Normally the
Connection Manager software automatically carries out this configuration
process, but because the Connection Manager software does not recognize
the Merlin S620 card in the U132 adapter it cannot be done in this way.
This means that a brand new
S620 card will not be able to connect to the Sprint network via the U132
adapter. In some cases, the whole system will crash waiting for the card
to make a connection to the network.
To use the S620 card in this U132 adapter, you must first either configure it yourself (using the Connection Manager software in another computer which has a PCMCIA CardBus slot to take the S620 card) or ask your Sprint dealer to do it for you. If you have been previously using your S620 card in another computer, it's already configured and you don't have to worry about this step.
