Wanted: Old Wireless Cards - Fuel My Eccentricity!

by Kimosabe » Sat May 12, 2007 1:54 am

Okay, this may sound somewhat strange, but bear with me.

In accordance with my policy of always getting what I want - even if it means waiting, I've recently begun acquiring all manner of awesome Windows CE machines. (What? They WERE awesome back in the 90's, and I remember guys with them and thinking how it was THE FUTURE of computing) Anyway, being addicted as I am and as determined as ever to show people they're still useful, I need some wireless cards for some of these devices.

Now while Windows CE 2.0 didn't actually natively ship with network support, to cut a long story short it does, but there are only drivers for certain cards. Now anyone with a linux machine - especially a laptop - has probably, like me, suffered the agony of the utter lack of support for non-windows 9x / NTx machines.

Anyway, getting to the point - I'm asking for help. My (as yet to be delivered - thank you auspost) Cassiopeia A-20 needs it.

Specifically, I'm asking (not for free but that would also be appreciated - I may also be able to arrange trade but don't expect me to have hordes of anime) for OLD WIRELESS CARDS! Well, not that old, but in the grand scheme of things they are.

If you're willing to part with fine specimens of the following models, I'm interested in hearing from you:
- Agere WiLAN Systems ORiNOCO Gold (802.11b)
- Agere WiLAN Systems ORiNOCO Silver (802.11b)
- Belkin F5D6020 Ver 1 (802.11b)

- Easytel Telewell WLAN PCMCIA LAN card (802.11b)

- Symbol Spectrum 24 Wireless LAN LA-2400, 2470, 3020, 3021-101, 3021-501, 3025, 3026

Email DiabloGTR ||AT|| optusnet.com.au, or contact Ryan White and he can probably let me know.

If this list looks awfully familiar, perhaps we need to be friends, and start a coalition against hardware asshattery...

Well, Windows CE 2 didn't sheet with network support either, but that's the most awesomely cute forum feature. Bonus points for that.
