I have 2 pda'a that I want to get connected wireless. One is a Toshiba E350 and the other is an Ipaq 3955. I have an expansion pack for the Ipaq. I have not seen in either the Toshiba or Ipaq websites any help or suggestions as to part numbers or manufacturers of wireless cards for the pda. Does anyone know what can be used for these models ? Thanks
Something's amiss with SDIO and the PXA250 chip. For instance, the iPAQ doesn't use the PXA250 MMC controller. It has a true SDIO controller built in so you don't hear big noise about this issue.
It's a shame you have to read about SDIO wide and narrow interfaces like you'll find at http://www.google.com/search?num=20&hl=en&lr=&ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8&q=pxa250+sdio+&btnG=Google+Search which, brings to light the status of some Pocket PC machines.
In short, because of the SDIO debacle, my advice is to avoid ANY and ALL PXA250 based PDA. You could do research on whether they added in a SDIO controller, but its easier just to avoid this CPU.
And while you may think I'm the one bearing the bad news, who else will be telling you? I've cornered the PDA vendors on this issue many times at trade shows and the people there are just there to shovel their glitz.
"It did not work on the Toshiba e310."
The issue is likely the underlying CPU (PXA250?) since the narrow SD interface is what I understand the reference BlueTooth design uses. With higher datarates from WiFi, I bet the reference design and drivers are all based on the full SDIO interface.
I'd ask for a refund.
Defects are... defects. I've returned items after three months so I'm pretty pushy on that.
Let me share that you must never get mad, shout or be threatening.
Next, you can share "what would make me happy" with who you are talking to. In one instance I wrote "I'd take the model that works and pay you the difference."
They took my offer and I paid very little for the change. Refund was for the year ago price, the new price was today's price.
May your story end so nicely!
