|Cyber-A, makers of the MWAVE Parrot, a multifunction card based on the Stingray chipset that comes in 2159-Sxx and a few other Aptiva models has released its own version of the 20E drivers.
While the drivers themselves seem fairly equal to IBM's release, the advantage to the Parrot 20E is that after installing an upgrade file can be applied to provide support for faster connection speeds.
The feedback I have gotten from users trying the Cyber-A 20E with the 56k patch has users generally reporting speeds betweek 38-42k, with the fastest speed noted being 44k.
|Anyone considering installing these drivers must realize up front that these are NOT IBM supplied drivers and will NOT be supported by IBM (but then again IBM's 20E is not supported by the IBM HelpCenter, so you're not losing that much there).
