    Hello.
    I have PCMCIA Wlan card CB54GM WLAN170063, manufacturer UPspeed. AFAIK UPspeed, wawecom, pro-nets has 100% same card, just rebranded ones. I know that card has Marvell libertas 802.11G chipset. Also i know that ORIGINAL card manufacturer are bestcom aka Point of View. Bestcom and UPspeed are Netherlands companies. I send tons of emails to all manufacturers, still no answer from them.
    Would be great if someone could send me drivers for XP. Dont want to buy new WLAN card :(

    ok after a good little hunt i found the following...


    1)

    its by a company named bestcom, its on thier original website but there are no drivers there for it

    http://www.dators.elkor.lv/?page=price&id=21&user_lang=eng (3rd one down to see it is a bestcom product)

    http://www.bestcom.nl/connection.html (in the 3rd row)

    then i found this

    2) bestcom changed tis name to point of view

    http://www.bestcom.nl/

    see the redirect?

    it also shows up as a point of view card, but once again you cant get to the drivers

    it asks you to email them in order to get them:

    so yeah, i used all of that to try and find some drivers, but i came up short. try using marvell ones, it might work

    This probably doesnt help much since the dirvers not posted, but someone else needs one too

    Driver guide says if they dont have the driver you can request it. I would try the email SippieCup posted, and make a request on some driver sites

    search ebay for someone selling the same card that has the cd, and offer them a few bucks to burn you a copy

    Thanks guys for replies, i send mails to about 20 manufacturers. Finally after few days found original marvell 802.11g drivers(CB-35P_3_1_1_7_Release) in some chinese page and got it working.
    I sent mail to Albert from POV suport, and he gave me WLAN router manual instead of drivers :D By the way UPspeed, bestcom and point of view are based in one warehouse
