I had a fun task of finding an alternative solution to an Aeronet 350 PCMCIA card that is still available and is still being manufactured that would run on a Windows CE 4.2 operating system.  It sounds like such a simple task... but no... it has taken me about 6 months to find any sort of wifi solution that would do this.  However we did have a bit of a power constraint as well, so that may have hindered things a bit too!

Anyway, what I have managed to find is a PCMCIA to CF converter and a CF Wifi card 802.11g that has wifi drivers for it for Windows CE 4.2.  It looks like a promising solution, it is low power, it does more than the old 802.11b card and it is made by Socket.

Can you send a driver for .net 4.2 for this card, if you have one? It is not available for download from the vendor's web site. Thanks

I do not work for socket as such I don't have the driver download on my site, you can request the driver from socket by e-mailing their customer support team, the address for that is on the socket website which you can access via the URL's in the post.

If the drivers they send you don't work for you then contact them and see if you can manage to access additional support from them, so far they have been very good with their support.
