have _not_ tested the following stuff on my own, since after reading
about those struggles w/ the sandisk combi-card, I refused to buy
one, too (using a dual pcmcia-jacket + 0815-prism25 instead).
later, I stumble across this:
Sandisk Connect Plus w/ 128MB flash - prism3
(due to tech support)
the 128MB card uses a different chipset (prism3) than the original wireless-only card
(WillLehman - November 2005)
have this card working with an Ipaq 3850 (although others will work as well) running Familiar 0.8.2
Basically you have to install three packages:
Erase all references to SanDisk devices in /etc/hostap_cs.conf and add:
card "SanDisk ConnectPlus 128M"
version "SanDisk", "ConnectPlus"
manfid 0xd601, 0x0101
bind "hostap_cs" to 0
#bind "ide-cs" to 1
add to /etc/modules.conf
options hostap_cs ignore_cis_vcc=1
last "options hostap_cs ignore_cis_vcc=1" depends on IPAQ´s 3V-only cf-slot, I´d guess;
but, has anyone tried to include the disabled line
bind "ide-cs" to 1
...with success, a ka have both wifi + flash working same time?
