"Socket WLAN Tools Mobile Edition is a new Socket wireless LAN utility that provides ease-of-use as well as advanced network statistics not normally seen in Pocket PC WLAN utilities. This new utility is intuitive and graphical in nature, making it very easy for new users to quickly determine if they are successfully connected to a wireless LAN. It also provides real-time monitoring of signal strength, link quality, Internet availability, data rate, packets sent/received, and duration of connection. The utility uses Microsoft's built-in Wireless Zero Configuration tool for wireless network configuration and profile management.

Bundled with Socket's new utility are new drivers for each card that supports Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA) security. WPA is supported using certificate-based EAP-TLS and EAP-PEAP. WPA with Pre-shared Key (PSK) is also supported for SOHO environments. WPA and WPA-PSK are only supported on Windows Mobile Second Edition as well as on some ROM upgrades of the original Windows Mobile ? users will need to check with the manufacturer of their device to see if WPA support is available."

Previous Socket drivers also worked with Symbol (CF) and SanDisk (SD) cards - so might worth to check if it still works.
The drivers are available for download now.

Good Morning,
Arne, do you know, wether this driver can also be used with the Sandisk wifi card?
The ppc 2002 version with my MDA II?

Hi I am using a O2 XDA II. It is Windows Mobile First Edition. I tried using SanDisk Wi-Fi + 256MB SD card but failed to get it working. Both the Wi-Fi and the storage cannot be determined. I have checked with Sandisk and they say there isn't any driver for O2 for that card. Can you please help? Thank in advance.
