802.11… PC vs. Mac

Setting up wireless on a PC sucks. It took about 2 minutes to get my airport card on my Mac up and running. It took nearly 2 hours of guessing to get the 802.11a/b on my PC up. The settings are in 2 different places and both have to be exactly the same. After comparing notes with a co-worker, we’ve discovered that there’s no standard for wireless settings and configuration in Windows (XP). His wireless card has to be set up completely differently than mine. BTW, his took nearly as long… and he’s a MS-certified engineer and admin.
