Alix high power wireless card fix!
REceived this from PCEngines:
PC Engines ECN #027 2/17/08
Board: ALIX.2C, ALIX.3C (all models)
Intention: Improve headroom for 3.3V power supply
Effective: running change, phase in ASAP
Issue: Problems when running high power cards such as Senao NMP8602+ or
Action: Change the following component values:
ALIX.2C-> R83 = 2.2K ohm (was 1.0K / marking 01B)
C98 = 4.7 nF (was no stuff)
ALIX.3C -> R73 = 2.2K ohm (was 1.0K / marking 01B)
C93 = 4.7 nF (was no stuff)
2.2K ohm resistors are marked 222 (5%) or 34B. Parts can be supplied
to customers on request.

Thanks for posting this. There was a similiar hardwarehack neccessary for the wraps when using high power wlan nics iirc. You also should get a decent psu when using such a card.
