Hi!
I bought SL-C760 on Amazon a while ago, it came with D-Link DCF-660W wireless card, but I always had a problems with that card, I searched the forums and it seems everybody has problems with that card. Now it doesn't work at all! Nothing even shows up in dmesg when I plug it in! I want to buy a new card, but I have no idea what card should I buy that would work with Kismet/Wellenreiter..

I'm not sure if there are cards for zaurus where you can plug external antena, that would be really, really great or any other card that has strong reception. even my USB 15$ Netgear card was able to discover more networks than DCF-600W.. any suggestions are really appreciated. Thank you!

The Ambicom I mention in my sig should work. Your SL C760 and my C860 have pretty much the same hardware under the skin. I'm sure they're still available on eBay, I have 2 of them.

Thanks a lot! I found it on amazon: http://www.amazon.com/AmbiCom-WL1100C-CF-C...r/dp/B00008W9PW
Did you require any extra modules, or it works out of the box? how about wpa? do you need wpa_suplicent? Thanks!
