Has anyone interface to a WiFi Compact Flash card before? I am trying to find out the pinouts.

Re: WiFi CF

Hi,

I had a linksys wifi CF card, and I plugged it into a PCMCIA adaptor (from an IBM microdrive), and it was recognised fine by my laptop. So basically you just need the PCMCIA specs (PC card if your card is compatible, since it is just 16-bit) and a CF-to-PCMCIA you will be able to interface to it.
See http://www.pcmcia.org/faq.htm for more info including pinouts for PCMCIA, and http://www.interfacebus.com/CompactFlash_PC_Card_IO_pinout.html for the pinout for your CF card when it operates in that mode, which the linksys one does for sure.
