For those of you interested, I now have a Compaq WL100 wireless nic working on my ePod. I'm using the LinkSys BEFW11S4 wireless access point. Since most people on this board were saying the WL100 drivers worked, I thought I'd just get a Compaq WL100 wireless PC card and have the card and driver match. Well, it worked just fine. Here's the steps I used:
1. I installed the WL100 drivers that are listed on the hack site. The CD that came with the card didn't have CE drivers on it.
2. Had to install the MFCCE211.DLL file from http://www.appstudio.com/mfc.htm (make sure to get the HPCPro for the MIPS processor one). Put that file on your ePods in the \Windows directory.
3. Without that file, I wasn't able to run the WL100 Status icon program.
4. Slipped the card in the socket, it recognized it.
5. Network properties in the Control Panel are "Obtain an IP address via DHCP". Yeah, that works!
6. I put in the primary and secondary DNS servers in the "Name Servers" tab. Don't know if I needed that.
7. I have 2 other NIC drivers loaded, one for a wired NE2000 Compatible Ethernet driver, and another for the PROXIM RangeLAN2 driver. Didn't delete either of those.
8. Haven't set up encryption yet.
9. Operating on Channel 6 (default for the LinkSys).
Link quality is excellent (93% and above - 6 feet away so far)
Signal Strength is also excellent (80% and above - but haven't gone far from the access point so far).
Once I got the MFCCE211.DLL file into the \Windows directory, things went pretty fast and automatic. I was amazed!
I'm running the Easy Bake hack.
Hope this helps someone else.
Now, is there a better browser for the ePods?
