I've got a Symbol Spectrum24 LA-4137 WiFi card right now. My old wireless router only supports WEP, and I'm pretty sure the CF card can't be made to support WPA, either. So, I'm considering upgrading both.

What would you recommend as a good, low-power CF WiFi card that supports WPA? I've heard that my current Symbol card is pretty good as far as power consumption, and I'd prefer to invest in a new card that is also frugal on power. I don't believe 802.11g is an option for CF cards on pdaXrom, or I'd definitely go that route.

I've been trying to follow the various threads on wireless cards, but it would be nice to just hear some recommendations from people who are happy with the cards they're using.

Kingston has a sale on their SD cards: 1GB card for US$8, 2GB card for US$15.

Supposedly, shipping is $3 or you can get free shipping if purchasing $40+ worth of merchandise.

Has anybody seen the Symbol LA-5127? And do you think there's any chance that it would work with PdaXrom?

Some of the "features and benefits"
# Wi-Fi® Certified WPA2 ™ Enterprise security offers secure connectivity with broad network interoperability
# Windows CE and LINUX versions allow OEMs to easily customize drivers for proprietary operating systems

Also check out the specs tab or the PDF, which include pictures of the external antenna connections. I get the impression that this does not have an internal antenna, however.

Unfortunately, I didn't find any place that carries this item. The following excerpt seems to imply this may not be available for retail sale:

Accelerate time-to-market—now and in the future
Available uniquely to the OEM market, the LA-5127 comes with a comprehensive development kit, including:
* Linux or Windows firmware and code files
* Application programmer's interface development guide (API)
* Driver programming guide
* Host interface document
* Integration guide
* User's guide
* Release notes

Your developers can easily customize and port the API and drivers for Linux and Windows CE to proprietary operating systems, and Motorola's OEM support team can work directly with your designers. Motorola can help you leverage the LA-5127's regulatory approvals by providing software to facilitate regulatory testing, uploading Motorola-proprietary information to labs and regulatory bodies and, in some cases, even using your antennas as part of our regulatory certifications.

I'm not familiar with this card, but I thought I'd pass the info along:

Today's Woot is a Connect3D 4GB SD card for US$25.

I'm building a sort of mini "docking station" for my C1000, which will supply power and have a USB hub. I need a short USB OTG mini-A to mini-B cable for connecting the Z to the hub. This type of cable does not appear to be very popular and the shortest I've found thus far is 1.5m. 15cm (6-in) would be more than enough for my purposes and I don't want loops of extra cable hanging off.

Does anyone know of a source for something like this? I could custom order, but the min order for one site I found is $100 and I doubt I'll find another vendor that's much cheaper.

If this cable does not exist, would it be practical to build one? I'm not familiar with USB cables or if there are tight specs on the type of conductors, shielding, etc.
