Any Visor Deluxe Experience with Xircom's Springboard WiFi Module ?

    I've got a Visor Deluxe collecting dust here, and I'm involved with
    WiFi networking. I was recently reminded what Xircom sold a Visor
    Springboard module that did 802.11 wireless. A google shows that it
    worked OK, better than the Palm WiFi of the same period.

    I decided to look for one on on Ebay. Including "completed autions",
    not one of these puppies has been sold in at least 90 days, and that's
    all the history ebay keeps, I think.

    That's forever in ebay time. Did Xircom actually ship these in any
    quantity ? Since springboard has been dead as a design for
    a couple of years (right ?) I'd guess that Xircom was
    ahead of it's time. It looks like Xircom/intel doesn't sell it
    anymore.

    Does anyone have one of these ?

  2. I have a SprintPort 802.11 module. I like it quite a bit. Setup was
    a bit annoying, lots of parameters to tweak, but that's more of a
    PalmOS 3.x issue.

    I mainly use it to hot sync and download news and weather via
    plucker. I occasionally use Eudora and rarely use the web, I'm not
    impressed by Eudora's web browser nor the one that came with the
    Springport.

    I tried the AIM client for a while, but it kept corrupting my memory.
    :-(

    Just hotsyncing couple times a day I get a month or more from the
    rechargable battery in the module.

    Overall I'm happy I bought it.

    Thanks.
