As folks may have seen from my ad hoc woes post, I can't connect my Symbian3 phone to my J720.

However, for $9.99usd, this arrived today and it's my first foray into ethernet (just 15 years too late!).

The Soho uses a ROM driver, no extra software needed, and it works OOTB with both my CE 2.0 Casio A-22T and the CE 3.0 J720

I have a Netgear Wifi Extender, which plugs into any household outlet, and the extender comes with an ethernet plug. Not truly mobile, but mobile enough around the house, which, internet-wise, is as far as most H/PC's can go, given their WPA liabilities.

As of my post, seller has nine left, for anyone who's a dinosaur like myself.

Go ethernet,
Jaked

Jake,

Have owned and used a Socket LP/E Ethernet card for more than a decade. But I paid nearly $100 bucks for it back then.

$10 and that includes shipping is a fantastic deal! Especially one that uses the built in NDIS drivers and doesn't require any software install.

Back in the "olden" days, it was indispensable when traveling as most hotels had an Ethernet connection built into the telephones you could plug into.

God I'm getting old....

Even hookers have wifi accessibility these days, so ethernet/low-rent-motel isn't the necessary setup that it used to be

I'm hoping to solve my ad-hoc problems with Joikuspot with this:

My forum searching tells me that the Cisco 350 (with older firmware) should be OOTB, and perhaps the J720 will properly connect to the Nokia E7.

The coolest thing about the Soho was its NIB. I took off the shrinkwrap and found 1.4 floppies for Windows 95 A and B. It brought back better times...

For posterity only: the Cisco 350 (OOTB, without firmware update) will not connect either Joikuspot or eZSpot. Try the NetGear MA-401 or 3Com 3CRWE62092B with eZSpot only.

The Cisco purchase well worth the 9.99usd NIB, nonetheless. Came in original wrapping with original Cisco shipping box. Fresh-smelling manual, drivers, I partied like it was 2001.
