I purchased a few of these cheap wifi cards on ebay: https://www.ebay.com/itm/AmbiCom-WL54-CF-802-11g-54Mbps-Wireless-Wif... ...they fit the CF card slot on the MP900/MP900c.

when the ambicom driver is downloaded from hpcFactor downloads, for the first time I am able to use WPA encryption...which isn't perfect but much improved over WEP...and at higher speeds than 11MBS. If you need spoonfeeding on the wifi set up I can give details...not all that hard to configure, though.

This improves security and speed especially with remote desktop (RDP)on a windows 7 desktop used as a media server I have set up using an old WPA enabled router. ..its not usually connected to the internet...but I can download from the internet on my wpa-2 laptop and then upload to the wpa media server by changing my wifi connection to it. Well, you get the general idea. These cards are a great buy at this price...and work great, IMO.

Great priceā€¦ back in 2012 I paid a lot more for these cards using them with my MP900 as you can see in multiple posts here on HPCFactor.

I have one of these for a MP900 with Cmonex 4.2 ... with the driver, it detects networks endlessly (detecting & re-detecting the correct network), but I get "no signal". Anyone else had this issue?
