This is all fine and well, Al, and friends here on the list.
Reality check time:
Intel bought DECs Hudson, N.Y. fab plant, where the tulips were/are made.
They don't make the 21140 any more. They DO make the more expensive 21143PC
It is not a case of Wisecom, or anyone else (Dlink, NetGear, Kingston, etc)
deciding to stop making 21140 based cards, but more a matter of not being
able to buy the chips any more..
So, to make a long story short, we are all chasing the remaining
inventories of tulip 21140 chips, on whatever boards they happen to live in..
After they are gone, learn to like something else...
Just my $0.02 worth.
