We've got a customer who wants to use a PCMCIA card on a Desktop PC....

Are there any retailers in Auckland who have PCI or USB > PCMCIA adapters?

Ive tried DSE, Protact, Qmb, EdenOnline......

There is this one...

It is internal, so may not give the flexibility that you customer needs...


There are more here...

There use to be heaps of them around when Wireless was new, but recently all the PCI wireless card makers have changed so that the Wireless chipset is intergrated into the PCB of the PCI card. Thus there is no need for a PCMCIA slot.

Global PC/Altronics (http://altronics.co.nz/) in Christchurch have a couple of adapters listed, one of which might be in stock. You'll love the prices. :D "Computer Components"/"Add on Cards" get to them from the home page. (look at the details, and get to the bottom of the details page for stocking information).
