I'm trying to find a suitable substitution for the included Philips 802.11b Wi-Fi card. I purchased 6 iPronto's from the US and I'm having a problem communicating with a European standard access point. I also have an access point from the US made by D-link (DI-514) and it works fine. But when I purchased a CNET access point from Europe, the iPronto does not see it. My idea was maybe to purchase a compatible Wi-Fi card to use with the iPronto instead of buying access points from the US.

Just another quick note about the Wi-Fi card. I need one that will allow the access door to close completely. Most of them are too long.

Any information will be greatly appriciated.

Thanks to all,
Kim

I'm in the UK and have a NETGEAR DG834G ADSL modem/router and it works with my iPRONTO.
Kind of.

Every morning I have to boot up my laptop with NETGEAR WIFI card in, the iPRONTO can then connect to the network for what I believe to be the rest of the day. If I do not boot my laptop then the iPRONTO will not see the network.
Oh well, at least I know a way of getting it to connect !
One other contributor has suggested a card that is compatible with the iPRONTO, but as far as I could tell it was an old card (probably out of production) and a US manufacturer.
I suspect that changing the WIFI card will probably solve my problems too.

Steve,

Thanks for the reply. I found a solution for iPronto card issue. I'm using my original Wi-Fi card that was included with the iPronto. I went to a local computer dealer and just started trying to find a compatible wireless access point. After trying a few, I stumbled across the D-Link DI-614 and it works beautifully. I'm assuming this particular brand allows multiple freaquency access. I mean working in the US/Canada as well as communicating in Europe.

So, if you contýnue to experience problems, try giving the D-Link DI-614 a try. I've been using ir for a couple of days with no problems.

Take care,
Kim
