I don\'t see why the linksys access point/router wouldn\'t work for you, though I personally haven\'t heard of the instant wireless cf card (is is lynksys as well?).

As long as you get at cf wireless card that works with the Z, I think pretty much any wifi access point/router will work with it.  (as long as it\'s all 802.11b)

I am using the LinkSys router/ap/switch that you questioned about.  It works great!  I have two laptops (XP Pro/Mandrake and XP Home), both using linksys instant wireless PC cards, one desktop using a linksys wireless bridge, and one mandrake system wired connection.  This in addition to my Z with a Netgear MA701 card.  I also use the Z at work where it connects to an orinco or enterasys or something like that AP.  I reccommend linksys products to people for home use.  They support linux so I try to steer a few sales their way.  I am pretty sure that the Z supports the linksys card you are looking at.

I bought that card at ComUSA with a $40 mail-in rebate. I have not had a single problem. It did require an edit to wlan-ng.conf

device \"prism2_cs\"
   class \"wlan-ng\" module \"prism2_cs\"

card \"Linksys WCF12 11Mbps 802.11b WLAN Card (Prism 3)\"
  version \"Linksys\", \"Wireless CompactFlash Card\"
  bind \"prism2_cs\"
