I'm getting a 2nd Zaurus at the end of January. Going to get a C3100, if it's not available, I'll get a C3200.
The only place that will take a money order through the regular U.S. mail is StreamlineCPUs, and this is where I found these cards.
I checked Dynamism, but they don't seem to carry CF network cards.
I have a choice between 2 WiFi cards, (there are 3, but the 3rd one is a 'G' card, and I'm sticking with 'B' for now)
I would post some pics, but attachments are not working at the moment.

Ambicom 802.11B WiFi Card WL1100C-CF ($69.99)

D-Link DCF-660W ($90.00) marked down from $143.00

If cost was the same on these 2 cards, which one would you choose? And why?

My second question is what is everyone's opinion on this LAN CF card?
CF Network Card ($99.00)
(looks like Socket Low Power Ethernet Card Ruggedized CF)

None of the stores in my area carry any compact flash I/O cards.
I have searched and personally asked salesmen. (They only have memory cards)
Bestbuy, Staples, CircuitCity, Officemax, Office Depot, Radio Shack.

Thank you for the replies everyone. smile.gif
I'll get the Ambicom. It's also $20 less than the D-Link I mentioned.
I am completely satisfied with the two Ambicom cards that I already have.
Both the GPS and the 56k dialup cards were found at Staples smile.gif
Also, thank you Enodr for the link and info about updating the firmware and card sizes. smile.gif
