Can anybody tell me where to find Asus's Wi-Fi card that fits their
proprietary slot? Also, was there EVER a "G" (802.11g) card produced that
fit this slot? I know the "B" card was produced, because a number of
motherboards came with the card.

I've search high and low, and thought that I had found one (the "G" version)
on NewEgg, however once the unit arrived, it was just the standard PCI card
with the remote mount antenna. I was rather disappointed as I was assured
by both the item description and Customer Service that the card I was
ordering fit the Asus Wi-Fi slot and was most certainly NOT the PCI version.

If anybody has a motherboard that came with this card, or even someone who
has purchased one in the past, I would appreciate it if you could pass along
a part number to me so I can search the 'net with that. It would certainly
make finding a unit that much easier... If you know where I can buy one,
that would be better yet!

I email Asus 5-days ago inquiring about these cards, however, I have yet to
receive a response from them, which, based upon posts here, seems typical.

Thanks for any help!

I have a P4C800 e-deluxe with one of the original Asus WiFi-B Cards. I
believe, there are not any "G" Versions. The "G" stands for 54 MB/s
bandwith.
The "b" Version with 11 MB/s ist more than enough! No DSL Net servs 11 MB/s.
My DSL 2000 delivers just 2 MB/s and that is
very fast indeed!
The run on the "G" ist bullshit! Only a router for dozends of pc's need more
than 11 MB. A single pc does not need more!!!! Look at my system.
I found the card at ebay! Search for "Wifi" and "Asus". I founded a lot of
cards. I payed 10 Euros at it works very fine! The extern antenna is very
handling. With this you can force a better bandwith by trying different
places for the antenna. No fixed antenna can do this!

Good luck

Oops, thought I did... It's and Asus A7N8X-E Deluxe...

Unfortunately, it's already been sent back... I may end up ordering the
same one again... Won't be as bad this time, the price has come down some,
and they refunded the cost of shipping as well, so I will actually make out
on the deal if that's what I decide to go with...

I'd still prefer to find the Proprietary card if I can though... It's seems
to be a cheaper route than the PCI card based upon the auction pricings when
I did an eBay search. Unfortunately, no WiFi-G cards that I can see... I
REALLY wish Asus would answer their support emails!

Looks pretty good and a decent price. Unfortunately, only ships to Germany,
and I'm in the US. Can't read the auction worth a darn either... :)

You could order one from Canada, it would even save you money. The link
below has them. Remember that the price is in Cdn funds which would save you
25 % or thereabouts.

Thanks for the advice. Actually the one I bought, and will probably get
again if I am unsuccessful in the next few weeks at finding the Proprietary
card, is the Asus Wi-Fi@Home unit here:

http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProductDesc.asp?descripti...

It's cheaper than other cards for whatever reason, and comes with a remote
mount antenna...

Is this another Asus orphan?

I bought the ASUS pci version with the external antenna from newegg for
about $30 USD. It is excellent and I recommend it. I put it on my kid's
virii laden computer and took him off our home lan. He has his choice of 3
open wireless systems in our neighborhood. Previously, my thinkpad could
only find one open wireless, but with that external antenna he has a bigger
range. Lag time for the rest of my kids improved considerably.
