Possible SanDisk WIFI driver for TE and T3

SanDisk has an attractive lineup of SDIO WLAN cards. There is a card bundled with 256MB and a regular one that only worked with the Zire 71 and the Zodiac by now. The devices are not too expensive, and seem to work well-for PocketPC users! Palm users had to miss out on the joy of using these devices because there was no driver available. SanDisk blamed PalmOne, and PalmOne blamed whomever. Whatever really hapened here, a ridiculous file was supplied to me recently. After virus-checking it, it was installed on a Windows XP box. Afterwards, it offered to sync stuff to my palm-and that was just what I did. Soon afterwards, a file called WIFI Setup was on my T3-but since I haven't got a WIFI card, that was about it. I ran the setup app and kicked the apps off my handheld.
Googling did not bring up many results, but one source stated that the driver worked with a Tungsten E. Most other reports state that the driver is intended for use on a T3 and a TE. However, I believe that one could also try a Treo 600 or one of the older Tungsten T handhelds(pretty similar hardware to the TE).
Here is a link to the file:
http://www.sandisk.com/tech/docs/palm-driver-v3.zip
The source stated that the driver wasn't released officially because the card drew too much power. But, since the source reports the card to be working for quite some time now and since the SDIO port should also be protected somehow, I personally do not see any risk here-but of course, I cannot take any warranties!
Please tell me if the program works/doesn't work, and what card(with or without memory) and handheld(TT,TE,...) you are using.

I got a copy just in case it disappears for some strange reason. If it does, I'll know it works. This is what I've been waiting for my Palm to do for years. Now off to eBay to get a WiFi/256 card........

I tried the SanDisk SD WiFi-card with 256 MB on it on my PalmOne Zire 72 - and it did not work at all. The WiFi-program said "No card found". :-(

I will go for the Palm WLAN card. It would have been nice with a bit of memory, though...

I managed to install the software on T3. It recognizes the card but fails to detect any networks. I don’t think this actually works.

Hi,
thank you all for the comments!
Looks like it works partially on a T5, not on a T3, well on a TE and not on a Zire 72...

I got this working on Tungsten|T. Drivers find the network and even got Eudora Web, Eudora Mail, & VersaMail to work. BUT I can't seem to get Avantgo to sych or Web Pro to work. Keeps complaining about DNS error. I don't get it. Is it related to the firewall on my network router? Any comments?

Hi ,

Okay. In Tungsten|E , you need to use the static option. Sometimes , the device may crash. Its unstable in most cases. But , who cares. Versamail works fine on my Tungsten|E.

Got a Zire 71 as a present from someone. Decided to try to get it to work with the other %90 of wireless networks out there which are 802.11b. Bought this card. MP3s work fine, and it plays movies from it fine. Zire 71 finds the card, and knows its there. However, the card's light will not come on, and it will not find any networks.

Blogger Tam Hanna said...

Hi,
this is indeed interesting. I will cook up a list of states and post it soon....
Something else to the guy with the Zire 71-ever tried SanDisks official Zire 71 Driver? Also, SanDisk has a version available expecially for the Z71-however, it lacks the Memory...
Thank you all for testing and commenting

any links on these drivers ?
need to get as much versions as possible because i need to get it working on a garmin ique 3600 (os 5.2.1)

thanks !!!

far from being secret leaked drivers, these drivers are the ones that _come on the cd with the 256/wifi card!_

They're the drivers for the Z71.

I actually accidently bought the card thinking it was made for all palms. I've tried everything to get it to work on my t3, but no go. I have the "not able to find any networks" problem.

My PPC friend is laughing at me and i dont think my next pda will be a palm.

btw if you wanna see the documentation that came with the cd for the z71...

Also, now that there is palm wifi drivers for the T3 thru palms own device, would there be anyway to use these files to enable the sandisk? I tried installing the palm drivers, but it wont finish without the actual card

Hi, just tested Sandisk drivers and its wifi card on my T5 and I was able to connect to open wifi network (could open web page, etc), but I have had no luck with my home net using 128bit wep encryption. Also, the connection to open wifi network was established only when I pressed 'connect' from prefs 'network' page. Sandisks Wifi Utility could not connect me.

now all cards here.
sandisk 2x, palm.
a t2, a garmin and a tc (just to be sure)

t2 finds the network and connects, but complains about dns as described before.

looks like there should be an additional driver necessary...

Anonymous Anonymous said...

... and tell you what ? Sandisk seems to (let) PRODUCE the PalmOne card !!!

they look ABSOLUTELY similar.

So where are the drivers ???

2:58 AM  
Blogger Tam Hanna said...

Hi you all,
indeed, the PalmOne WIFI card is very similar to the SanDisk one-I feel that all it has new is a different SDIO peripheral ID. The driver queries the ID-and alas..
If I had a copy of both cards(the SanDisk without memory and the other one), I could try hacking the drivers and return the stuff afterwards. But like this-forget it!

ok - the sandisk driver in the info section (-> more -> info) says: 01 for Zire 71, 02 for Tungsten E, 03 for for T2 and 04 for T3.

And - in addition - there is a minor release 06 for the Zire version referenced - mine is 01 (from the original CD !)

we do have the 01. Where are the others ? anybody here who has connections into sandisk development ? This would be a key !!!

You wrote, that googling did not bring up many results. That reminds me of another thing I've been looking quite some time. It's not completely unrelated :-)

Do you guys know about WLAN Software that works on my Sony Clié TH-55? I'm thinking for example about a different ip-stack (the built-in one is very slow), a different Webbrowser, maybe a WLAN-detector...?

why - the f### - does shadowmite concentrate in the palm drivers ??? when actually working everybody detects fast that the missing SD card is a new issue. so most interesting it would be to get the sandisk wifi&256meg card working...

the zodiac drivers do install on a t3 - and do not complain whne the sdio slot is filled with one of both sandisk cards or the palm wifi crard. but neither do they find a network, even with a known ssid.

but absolutely, wifi on palm is rolling :-)

Hello,

I've been following this thread with huge interest! Since Sandisk dropped the the file, and Simon got it working on his Tungsten T (in a manner, that's totally fullfilling my needds), could someone please mail me the installer ("palm-driver-v3.zip")?
Dave said, that he's keeping a copy just in case...

Thanks to all for keeping this community up! :-)

Well, I still dont understand why this should work on one device and not on another, since they all have the same PalmOS and *should* have the same SDIO slot.

I have a T5 and I am not buying PalmOne's card until I'm absolutely sure I cant get this one to work.

The DNS problem mentioned might just be a config problem. You could try doing a ping to a known site (using the name or the IP) to see if it works.

How did it get it to work on a T5?

3:15 PM  
Anonymous Anonymous said...

Has anyone had any luck getting this to work on a T2?

I am totally bummed that Palm has left older model owners out in the cold (again).

I love my T2, but WiFi would make it perfect. Palm has chosen however, to abandon the slider style (AAAGH!) and the T/T2 entirely.

I am very happy with my garmin ique 3600, but have a need for internet access on this device; ideally the SD WiFi + 256MB. I googled for several combinations of keywords, and found only your website with promising information. I would like to know definitively, if the SD WiFi + 256MB works with the garmin ique 3600 (not the 3200, not the M5). If it does not, I am eager to understand, technically, why this card does not work in this pda. please do your best to elaborate, because I would like to share this information with others that are also interested. Thank you for your time.

the sdio wifi card does not work with the sd interface on the garmin ique 3600. after several emails to garmin, sandisk and sychip (OEM), i still do not know if this is a firmware, driver, hardware, OS, marketing, or political issue.

unfortunately, the only wifi option that exists for the garmin ique 3600 is the enfora wireless lan portfolio WLN0103:

so to be clear, sandisk's sdio card, and this driver, installed on a tungsten e, can connect to a wifi network? what about sandisk's 256+sdio card? maybe a matrix of devices and cards that this has been tested on would be appropriate.
