I got one of these cards last week and its a great little card. Although the blue LED kept constantly flashing even though I wasnt accessing anything on the network. A new set of drivers sorted that.
Signal is great, works perfectly on my Imate Jam and Belkin Pre-N router.

I'd love to get one of these. I am so afraid of breaking my Sandisk WiFi off when walking with the card in. It just sticks out and says "Look at me!! Out here all by myself....."

Got one of these last friday- works out at about £26 inc VAT and del in the UK. I must say I have been impressed with it. It's a Safecom card and although the Jam tells me the drivers were designed for a previous version of the OS, I've had no problems. It picks up signals pretty well too. I've been surfing on a local unencrypted wifi connection without problems with a signal strength of only 4%. Which is nice. I completely recommend this- most other wifi sd cards cost around £50.

Are you sure its 6-8mm longer? :roll:  :)

That 256Mb SD looks like someone chewed on it!

Paul has been using one of these for ages, I know he said that he has had no issues at all with it. He also said 6mm longer.

Ebuyer sell products made by the company i work for. i speak to maybe 10 customers a day who have had nothing but problems with Ebuyer. i rarely speak to anyone who has anything good to say about them.

<{POST_SNAPBACK}>



Well, in fairness you've not spoken to many a happy eBuyer customer by the sounds of it. I've spent (through my company) the better part of 45 grand in the last 18 months with them... Sure, their CS is almost as good as Orange CS, but, businesses buying bucket loads of kit from them are far more in a position to say they are as good as any other IT supplier. Joe Public will almost certainly have a narrower view because of their lower frequency to use the supplier.

Only bad comments I've heard about ebuyer are when people have ordered items that aren't in stock. They sometimes have a tendancy to not re-stock some lines it would seem. That said, the person who made that comment did a few years ago now. And I've had the same problem with Novatech - so it's not like they're any worse - just suffer from the same problems I guess...

As for the wifi card - looks nice - tempted to get one myself now, although my surfing through my PC over bluetooth is fine for my needs - certainly good enough for me to sit in the living room and browse webpages, check e-mail and use MSN :)

I've got my Safecom card now from Ebuyer and it's working fine with my Netgear router using WPA-PSK :)

I've just got one.. worked first time out of the box with the supplied drivers.. I was quite disapointed. I thought I'd have days of 'entertainment' trying to get it to work :)
