The Tungsten E2 now does WLAN

Just in case some of you wondered. PalmOne now made its WIFI SD card compatible with the Tungsten E2 handheld. Find the updated driver over at their support section:
http://www.palmone.com/us/support/downloads/wifi_card.html
BTW, the Treo 650 stil isn't supported. I wonder when PalmOne will get smart enough to see that these users want WLAN too. Or are they trying to have an argument for the new, coming Treo?

I believe there is a hacked driver that works on the Treo. Its the same as the T5 driver, which means that the problem isnt with compatability, its that the liscensees asked Palm not to make it available.

The hack changes one variable which keeps it from installing on the Treo.

People buy a card for their E2, Palm makes money. People buy one for their Treo, the cell carriers lose money, because people stop using their data services for everything, and the carriers yell at Palm. The more carriers that carry the Treo, the better for Palm, and its always good to please the carriers.

Hi Brad,
we share the same thought about the Treo WIFI story. But, PalmOne ansd the carriers will eventually have to accept other wirless standards. The Nokia communicator is said to do WIFI already...

I have attempted for 5 months to get both a Sprint Treo 650 CSMA & a Cingular Treo 650 GSM working with Shadowmite's hacked WiFi driver & the PalmOne WiFi SD card. No luck! Continuous rebooting of the Treo. Same thing with SanDisk's WiFi SD card. I tried the stock Zodiac & T3/5 drivers that came with the each of the various WiFi cards & even purchased the C-guys wifi card. I Contacted their tech support on numerous occasions & worked with a beta driver that their engineers had created. Same issue. They no longer are supporting the T650 with their card. I was able to get each of the WiFi cards to see the 802.11b signal, provision themselves to that signal but not receive any data.

I am still hoping that the Enfora WiFi Sled, which is more than a year overdue will be available someday...but I won't hold my breath!

Network configuration files internal to the T650 must be rewritten each time dial up networking changes. This in effect changes the DUN for the phone when wireless is activated. I believe that is why PalmOne is not supporting their WiFi cards in the Treo & not because of some conspiracy theory that many people are subscribing to regarding PalmOne, WiFi & the various carriers.

Hi,
what do you mean with DUN? DialUpNetworking?
I have had multiple different kinds of network services configured simultaneously on my handhelds since the IIIc-and never had problems...

Hello Tam

I've got an E2. I use it for a lot of stuff. I don't enter data in my Mac, I just enter it in the E2 and save it in the Mac every few days. Problem: I'd like more than 15 categories in the E2. Is it possible to have more than 15? - can there be maybe 30 categories? Would like to know how to increase the number of categories in the E2 if possible. I really like my palmOne, I don't understand why sales have dropped - I assume it's 'cause of them Blackberries, etc. Hope to hear from you soon, thank you.
