    I used ACU/bcard, but it was fairly fiddly. I kept finding that
    changing a setting would make the card go into a strange state which was
    unrecoverable, even by unloading/reloading the module. Only rebooting
    would fix it. Eventually I managed to get everything configured, and I
    just get modprobe to run bcard after loading the module to configure the
    card. This seems to work reliably so long as I avoid doing any other
    settings with acu (

    I've been doing some work to extend airo.c to support the 350, based on
    Ben Reed's start. Unfortunately the card gets into state just keeps
    misbehaving and reports errors, but without any documentation its hard
    to work out what's going wrong. I'm hoping Cisco will see fit to
    release some documentation (or at least a new driver) - particularly
    since it seems the number of mpi350 Linux users is increasing, driven
    into Cisco's arm by Intel and Broadcom's complete documentation void.
