I picked up an used D-Link DCF-660W compact flash WiFI card for my Zaurus C3100 recently. My Z is running the latest Cacko ROM. When I insert the card, my Z recognizes it, but I seem to be having trouble with it.

At home, I have a Linksys WRTP54G wireless router. I am able to obtain a network connection on this router, but I notice the following problems:

1) I have to disable security on the router. If I try to enter a WEP key in the WEP tab of a Wireless LAN -TCP/IP entry in >Settings>Network, I find that I can never get the Z to connect.

2) After I Disconnect the network connection, cannot hit Connect again and get the network connection back. I have to select 'Eject card:0 D-Link 660 11Mbps WLAN Card', manually pull out the CF WiFI card, and re-insert it, bnefore the Z detects the card and permits me to set up a new network connection.

3) When I go on the road and visit different places, I am unable to get the Z to set up a network connection on any other wireless LAN. I suspect that this is because the signal strength is not as strong in these areas, compared to when I am in the near vicinity of my own wireless router.

Has any one experienced these problems with a CF WiFI card? DO I have a bum card, or is my C3100 not configured correctly?

Thanks for any help,

Fry
