Does anyone know when philips plans on making the Ipronto wireless "G" compatible?

Will current owners be able to upgrade?

since it has an external wireless card, there should not be a problem

An upgrade would probably just involve a new PC Card and a firmware update with drivers.

Nothing G-related was been announced. However, expect a new firmware update in a few weeks that looks good.

Any hints to what looks good in the next firmware? :)

To be honest I'm not entirely sure. At minimum, they've done a lot with anti-aliasing fonts. Also, expect a G update sometime early next year.

Hopefully, they'll fix enough so that I can get one of these things soon (I've been waiting forever!). I don't want to have to assign a unique function to every button before I can learn a new code onto it. When they fix that, maybe I'll bite...

IMHO, it should work just like all the other pronto's. Guess I don't understand why they decided to design it the way they did.

Why do you want 802.11g support? The volume of data being sent to and from the iPronto is pretty minimal and you're not going to be browsing much in the way of feature rich sites on it.

I have an 802.11g access point at home and use 802.11g in my lappy but the iPronto seems more than happy connecting through the access point and the laptop talks to the iPronto perfectly.
