Hello,
Just picked up an SL-5600 on ebay, my first Linux PDA. I need to be able to use the wireless network where I go to school. They use WPA-PSK and TKIP. I haven't bought a wireless card yet, but what I really need to figure out is if there is a 5600 ROM that that supports this (not real comfortable compiling my own ROM). I see Cacko does, but there is no SL-5600 version of Cacko, is that correct?
I've poked around quite a bit on the forums, but most of the references for WPA I've seen are old or discuss compiling your own ROM.
I'd appreciate any advice on a CF card/ROM combo that will make WPA easy.
Thanks and regards,
-Phil

I'd like to resurrect this topic. Sadly, the thread has been ignored but I am also wondering about this and do hope someone sheds light in this situation.

I'll know soon- I've ordered the AMBICOM CF WIFI card, and I also just picked up a SL5600 from ebay (for $50). I'll be using the OE Angstrom 2007.12 releases, and I'll post back here in a few days (as soon as I get my card) and report how it works via WPA. I'm thinking it should work as long as I use the 2.6.23 kernel on the OE autobuilds.

Most of the ROMs should support WPA. The Ambicom card will, so long as its firmware is >=1.7.4, which it should be.
