    Hi

    Just managed to get a brand new W200 WiFi adapter for my Compaq Evo N410C of
    ebay and it is working fine.

    However in addition to the driver software there is another CD called
    Odyssey Client for HP. This is also available from the N410C driver
    downloads page on Hp's site.

    So my question is what is this Odyssey Client. Do I need to install it over
    and above the basic client that is built into the driver, bearing in mind
    that the connectionto the internet works? Or does this provide me with some
    additional functionality? Will it assist with home networking / filesharing
    / printer sharing etc?

    Or should I just leave well alone and stick with the standard Compaq client?

    Any advice greatly appreciated

    Thanks

    Duncan

    Duncan,

    The Odyssey Client is only needed if you are using your W200 to connect
    to 802.1x.

    Here is the explanation from the HP website. -"This SoftPaq contains
    Odyssey Client software version 1.1 for the HP products and operating
    systems listed below. The software provides IEEE 802.1x supplicant
    support for IEEE 802.1x based authentication infrastructures."-

    Software and updates for your N410C can be found at:
