Full Version: Misplaced My Cf Wifi Card

My Asus WiFi has gone missing, I'm pretty sure I left in the ALT airport last night during another 'Delta delay'.

So I'm in the market for a new CF WiFi card. I'm also going to add a Bluetooth card to may stable. I found a decent thread that recommended the Socket BT CF card, since it doesn't protrude much.

WhatWiFi card has the smallest antenna?
What WiFi card has the best (least) power usuge?

I plan to use either Cacko or OZ/Opie so I need to be sure it's supported by these ROMs also.


Thanks,

Mark

I accidentally purchased a symbol spectrum24 cf wifi card bck when I got my 5500 (when they first were released). Although my unit has been changed a couple of times (5500->c1000->c3200) this card has been a constant. It works out of the box with all the roms excluding pdaxrom beta 4, but even that can be tweaked to work. Also, it can be found fairly cheaply. I picked mine up for between 10 and 20 dollars (usd) (it was so long ago!)

hope this was some help!

Have you called to see if it was found? I live in Atlanta, and work 5 minutes from the airport. I could mail it back to you if it hasn't been thrown away.

No I haven't called lost and found. I'll ring them, but it doesn't change my desire for a new WiFi card with the smallest possible antenna.
