Hmm... I'll try to think about it :-) There is no HDD in that machine, 
CF card only (with IDE-CF adapter in HDD slot).

Surprisingly, my AP works very well with WPA-PSK instead of WEP. 
Absolutely without errors, very fast and stable. So I have a workaround 
for the Atheros card (cardbus D-Link DWL-G630).

Sadly, this trick don't work for Ralink miniPCI card, but this is a 
different story.
