Will an Acer n35 work with the Sandisk Wifi / 256 Mb Combo SDIO card?
Posted on 2006-04-12
Hi guys. Really simple question here that i hope someone might help with. I have an Acer n35 Pocket PC running Pocket Windows 2003. I have also bought a Sandisk wifi / 256 Mb SDIO combo card off ebay (you can't buy them new anymore). Have downloaded the drivers from Sandisk website and installed everything fine. Hardware is acknowledged, and wireless app runs on Acer PPC. However, it cannot and will not see any wireless networks. Have run other third party apps on it and it's the same problem; just scans and scans but doesn't find the two wireless networks in my house.
I did a bit of reasearch on the net before buying it, and found that some people could get these two devices to work together, and other couldn't. I took a gamble. The question now is have I bought a faulty unit or is there a genuine incompatibility? If anyone out there has tried this combonation and had similar problems, or indeed some success, I'd be very grateful if you could reply back.
