    My boss would like me to buy a PCMCIA wireless nic that can be used on 802.11 a, b, and g networks. Does one even exist?

    I know G can work on B, but not A.

    Your thoughts?

    It will have two radios. There are many so called tri band client devices and AP's. Actually it's dual band 2.4 ghz and 5 Ghz) but they support all three 802.11 specs.
    Google: Tri Band hardware

    I use a Proxim/Orinogo A/B/G card. Works great.
