You don't tend to hear much about the 'invisible' side of things, but every so often when you do you can usually rest assured that a madman isn't too far behind; and so when Rich Hawley said he had a great review of an invisible wireless adapter, we certainly didn't doubt it!

If you are in the market for a new wireless card, or perhaps are fed up of having to remove your existing card to get your beloved H/PC into its tightly formed leather case then join Rich as he has a look at the (almost) invisible Contec FlexLAN DS110 WiFi adapter.

Wonderful review!

I just have 1 comment on how to save battery while the card sits inside NEC MobilePro 900C as an 'internal' WiFi.

For NEC stock ROM, soft reset will allow you to power the card using the battery or not.

For custom ROM Cmonex v2, you need to edit an entry in the registry to enable this option using PHM Regedit under Utilities:
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Drivers\PCMCIA]
"NoBatteryCheck"=dword:00000001 -> change this to 0.

Thanks to cmonex for this hint!

Rich,

Very cool. First piece of HPC hardware I've seen in years that makes me want to hit ebay.

Thanks,
Jake
