I live in Latvia. We can buy only new Aironets without much effort, but
that's big $. Used also goes around 100$. Only Repotec is offered but we
havn't seen them for  monts now. RTL8180L chip based cards cost quite a
little money 40$. We realy badly need TI chip support; those cards come
around 50$ and offer greater speed.
