    I have the opportunity to get an Ipaq 3955 at a pretty decent price, but it doesn't come with the wireless card or sleeve (not sure which it uses). There is already a wireless network available on campus, so I would just need the hardware to access it. Does anyone know how much such an item is going to cost me? I tried searching the net for info, but I'm not sure which one is the one I need.

    well, you would need the compact flash sleeve, which is about $40 or so, if i remember correctly, then you will need a compact flash wifi card, which is around $70-100. These are just general prices, hope this helps.

    Get a sleeve (PC Card or CF card) and a wireless card, as mentioned.

    I got a sleeve for $79 (PC Card version) and a wireless WPC11 PC Card for $39...
