Hi,

Where can I get a wireless PCI card online which supports WPA and doesn't include a £10 - £15 delievery charge to Northern Ireland?

£15 delivery - bloody rip off!!!


Thanks.

It is questionable whether it supports WPA, though. The overview says that it does, but the specification does not.

What online retailers do you have that are based in Ireland or have branches there? PC World?

I've decided to get a linksys wmp54g pci card from amazon.

The spec on the linksys website states that that particular model is WPA compliant.
Plus, it will be a matched pair with the router.

Although the amazon website states that it does not support WPA it also includes a photo of a pci card which does not resemble the wmp54g.

I'd be surprised if amazon was still selling previous years spec devices 1/2 way through 2006. If they are I will return it and tell them that it is not the item that is detailed on the Linksys website.

I hope to have not muc hbother with this purchase, but you never know.

Why would they have a WPA enabled router and the associated PCI card without this feature?

Regards.
