Does work with kismet.

Origo Wireless Compact Flash Card - Works perfectly.
Works also with kismet.

I've just bought a Buffalo WLI-CF-S11G for use with my C750. I'm glad I didn't see your post before I bought it or I would have been put off.

It actually works fine although I get frequent problems connecting after I've been using another CF card. Battery life is reduced but I get about three hours of use out of it on the standard C750 battery.

To overcome the connection problems (it just reports that the network is offline), I've tried switching the Zaurus off and on again. That seems to work sometimes. Or rebooting. I'm currently running with 'Connect Automatically' switched off and getting fewer problems but it's a bit early to say whether that's the solution or not.

saiten - I've never heard of origo, and a quick google search didn't come up with much... I'm looking for a new wifi card for my 760. Would you mind posting a link on the origo? Also, that's not short for orinoco right? (I do know the orinoco name!)
