ORiNOCO Classic Gold PC


NOW ON EBAY: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=6856516779


Actual pictures of card and everything that comes w/ it. =) (I should be a product photographer)






This is the Holy Grail of wardriving wifi cards (some of you may know of my ways :smoking: ). These Orinoco Classic Golds are hard to come by now a days. So whether you are wanting to borrow your neighbors WiFi or the person 2 doors down this is the card for you.... or If you'd like to use it on the network in your house, work, airport etc, this one is for you. Antenna Jack: External antenna socket / connector is an MC Jack. You can attach an antenna with an MC plug. You can hook up a regular antenna or Cantenna to get those hard to reach areas in your house (or on your street/block).

yeah, or with the cantenna, down the street, down the block, the next block over, subway 2 miles down the road (okay, maybe not that far)

Not that this is needed, but this is one heck of a great card, and the price is great for this product. the linksys srx cards do not even come close to this one, looking for a card, get this one.

Check to see if the laptop you are going to purchase is a type-II PCMCIA slot. You put it in the slot and put in the cd to load the drivers and off you go. =)

ill just copy the specs over and you tell me if you think it will work:

The laptop is a Toshiba Tecra 8100.
Pentium 3 650 MHZ
512 MB of Ram
60 Gig Hard Drive 55.89 GB useable after formatting
The screen will do 1024 x 768 in 32-Bit Color. I think it's a 14.5" screen
1 Paralell Port (printer)]
1 9-pin Serial Port
1 USB Port
1 PS2 Port
External Monitor connector
And a CD Rom, that I think is a 24x speed unit

You'll have to get a PCMCIA wireless card to match your home wireless network, or get a PCMCIA network card, as this has NO network jack built in.


hmmm so it has a slot how can i tell if it will use a type 2?

I checked the specs of the Toshiba Tecra 8100 on the net, and it says:

TECHNICAL FEATURES
Expandability: 2 x Type I/II PC Card Slot (PCMCIA)

So yes it will work. =)
