Any help appreciated :)

1. 802.11a use?
I just got the iPronto today with its 802.11b network adapter. Unfortunately, my home wireless network runs with 802.11a. The customer support dude on the phone said I could just stick a duel band or 'a' band network card into the ipronto card slot and it would work. None of my network cards actually fit into this slot (the iPronto card is thinner at the base). What can I do to connect it to my network?

2. Old RF extenders ok?
I have been using a Pronto Pro with the RF extenders. I just got the iPronto. Can I continue to use these with my iPronto? (assuming problem 1 is solved) Do I need something else to get RF extendability?

Thanks

The ipronto does not support 802.11a. If you have a dual band access point or router and it is configured to "dual band" mode then the it should work.

You must use the NetX6400. The pronto pro RF extender will not work with the ipronto.
