Das Anybody Know Gw-cf11h ?
« on: August 29, 2006, 05:42:24 pm »
Hi All,
I just saw in Interenet the CF-card, which is certified for Zaurus ( http://www.optimus.co.th/planex/product/pr...p?p_id=GW-CF11H )and have a question:
did somebody tried such a card or has any info about it? And, if yes, how is possible to find what kind of chip is in the card? Prism 2.5 may be?
It is wrote, that the card works immediately with Cacko 1.23, but I think also about the accu use.
Thanks in advance!

Hi,
the Planex card is Prism3 based. So you need to update
the SHARP Rom (should also work with Cacko).
The needed IPKs are available in our download area:

Hi,

Thank you! By the way, following yours nickname, does Trisoft sell such a cards?
in principle: Yes.
The problem is, that we only have a limited quantity of these cards.
Actually there're only about 50 left, not enough to announce them
officially or put them on the website / shop.
If you're interested in one of these, simply drop us a mail.

The main problem with all CF WiFi cards is, that since July 1st the
new "RoHS" (Restriction of Hazardous Substances) directive took
effect.
(More information here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ROHS)
The big problem for the manufacturers is the lead-free production.
So all known producers stopped the production of CF cards but
don't provide a new model matching the RoHS requirements.
Only rest-stock imported before the deadline can be sold.
As far as we know, there's actually only one manufacturer left
with a RoHS conform product. We have a few samples here and
are now in contact with some programmers in the Zaurus
community to provide drivers for this new product.
We hope that we can announce the new card in a few weeks with
full driver support for the most used Roms.

This is just some "behind the scenes" information about the funny
problems we have to fight with every day

PS: Cross your fingers that we'll manage to get some fine Zaurus
drivers up and running because we really fell in love with the new
card. It's a beautiful slim device without the big antenna-thingy we
had on all the previous cards.

Merc, thank you very much! It is a very interesting information! For a last weeks I tried find WLAN cards for Zaurus, but the markt looked like a desert! Nobody sell them. The reason is clear to me now. I crossed my fingers!
