The 5455 has integrated wireless but it is 802.11b -- not .11a as I interpret Josephut to imply. The point is MS "may" work on .11a but requires a Hermes based card like an Orinoco, Proxim or Compaq to work but note if it does, the range will be much more limited due to range and lack of external antenna on current .11a cards.

If the wireless on the 5455 is Prism based, you have two options. Try PocketWarrior and see if the 5455 works "out of the box" for stumbling or second option is to buy a sleeve and Hermes card like SourceHaxor and the other MiniStumblers have done.

Let us know if it is a Compaq or Hermes based but looking at SoureHaxor's post it isnt since he bought the sleeve\Orinoco Gold for his setup.

Hermes based card like an Orinoco, Proxim or Compaq WL110 Hermes based card like an Orinoco, Proxim or Compaq WL110
