Docomo Wireless Card
« on: September 07, 2007, 08:32:42 am »
Hello everybody.  Ive got a possibly simple question.  SL-C 860 and 3100, both have been running SharpROM, and now Cacko.  A Japanese combined WiFi and wireless modem card, "DoCoMo P-in Free" works straight "out of the box" on Sharp, but is "unsupported" on Cacko.  I have tried to find differences between Sharp and Cacko /etc/pcmcia files, and can't find any relevant ones.  It's not the end of the world - I can afford another CF WiFi card, but if I can get it to work, it'd make me feel better.  Any ideas?  
Thanks

can you tell us more about this card ? ( i cannot read japanese!)
what kind of gsm network can it work with ?

i'm desesperatly looking for a 3G UMTS or HSDPA CF Card for the Zaurus... so far i've found this one :
VC701SI http://mb.softbank.jp/mb/en/product/connec...duct/index.html
but i'm unable to find a place to buy it.......would you help me please?

by the way, you should try your card under some "modern" latest zaurus distros : pdaxrom, xii13, angstrom or openbsd ! they probably have the latest available drivers. tell us if it works !

Hi.  You can find the card at [a href=\"http://www.nttdocomo.co.jp/english/p_s/products/card/p-in_free/2pwl/]http://www.nttdocomo.co.jp/english/p_s/pro...p-in_free/2pwl/[/url].  I think the wireless modem facility is for a Japanese-only network, not 3g compatible, but I'm not sure.  If you think it's any use to you, you're welcome to make an offer!  

I've tried it with pdaXii13, and still no joy!

Thanks.

Yes, I sure youŕe right.  All I want to do is use it as a WiFi card, but even that I can´t do - it is fine with SharpROM, but not with Cacko.  My question is, why not?  Is there something I can do to make it work (WiFi only, I accept) with Cacko?

it should show up as a modem for the phone part at least, that would be the easist thing to get running but i wonder if the wifi is some special module or if it runs over a serial link as well,

can you give up the readout from cardctl?
