I've spent about a week and a few hours trying to get connected to my home wifi using a LInksys CF card in Zaurus sl-c3000. The first day I had the card I stumbled into a configuration that worked (without having to enter any information), but even though I made no changes, the connection quit working after a day. Since then I have tried a hundred or more possible variations, and all have failed. Is there anyone who has used this card with a zaurus c300? Mike

I don't think anyone is going to be able to help you very much with the infomation provided.

What ROM are you running and what is the model of you wireless card (eg. WCF12)?
Are you using WEP/WAP, what router are you using?
Are there other computers on the wireless network, and do they work?
Does the CF card work in other devices?

For what it's worth,

I had a similar problem, with an Ambicom card. It worked at first, then wouldn't/was very irratic.

It turns out that I was trying to connect to my wireless access point, which was using channel five of the wireless spectrum, when an access point nearby was using channel six. When I changed my access point to use a channel that had more separation from other access point, things really cleared up.
