I don't see why the linksys access point/router wouldn't work for you, though I personally haven't heard of the instant wireless cf card (is is lynksys as well?).

As long as you get at cf wireless card that works with the Z, I think pretty much any wifi access point/router will work with it. (as long as it's all 802.11b)

I am using the LinkSys router/ap/switch that you questioned about. It works great! I have two laptops (XP Pro/Mandrake and XP Home), both using linksys instant wireless PC cards, one desktop using a linksys wireless bridge, and one mandrake system wired connection. This in addition to my Z with a Netgear MA701 card. I also use the Z at work where it connects to an orinco or enterasys or something like that AP. I reccommend linksys products to people for home use. They support linux so I try to steer a few sales their way. I am pretty sure that the Z supports the linksys card you are looking at.

I bought that card at ComUSA with a $40 mail-in rebate. I have not had a single problem. It did require an edit to wlan-ng.conf

device "prism2_cs"
class "wlan-ng" module "prism2_cs"

card "Linksys WCF12 11Mbps 802.11b WLAN Card (Prism 3)"
version "Linksys", "Wireless CompactFlash Card"
bind "prism2_cs"
