The Netgear MA-701 802.11b card works great in my Z. As does my PNY 128 CF card.

The Symbol wi-fi cards are cheap and work well (with a driver from Sharp's page if you are running their os.)
But the Dell brand wi-fi should be avoided, not gonna work.
And if you get a sd card there is a brand to avoid, I think it was sandisk. Not positive on that though. Reliability problems though, that much I know.

I have also heard sandisk is to be avoided for SD cards.

BTW. Thanks for the replies
