The wifi adapter in my CF-29LTQGZBM keeps dropping the signal. I can not find any EnGenius EMP 8602+S cards but did find this TP-LINK TL-WN861N 300Mbps Wireless Mini PCI Adapter card:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/TP-LINK-TL-WN861N-300Mbps-Wireless-Mini-PCI-Adapter-/161127899311?pt=US_USB_Wi_Fi_Adapters_Dongles&hash=item2583f8a0af

Does anyone know if it will work with my 29, running Linux?

Thanks.

What about this card?

Not a plus but it's $8.00

800mw anyone?

Well, the Search Ninja does it again! :) I had searched ebay for 'EnGenius EMP 8603' and got nothing. Thank Shawn.

I would still like to know if any members have used the TP-LINK card as it does 'N' band. Thanks.

This is also a good alternative. I used this back when modding the M34 & 29. Link: http://www.ebay.com/itm/261444136204?_t ... EBIDX%3AIT

That EnGenius EMP 8603 looks kinda' nuts. I'd almost consider it if I could find adapters for the MMCX antennae sockets. One of my 29's could use the extra transmit range in a specific location I have in mind.
