JoinTech JE100 Wifi

Okay, I'm sooooooo close to pushing the button on this one, but wondering if anyone who got the Wifi can shed some light on it.

I noticed while their website doesn't show it, their blogspot ad shows free Wifi dongle included.

I e-mailed them and got confirmation that they are indeed still shipping free Wifi with it.

So for anyone who has used it:

1. How well does it work with CE? I didn't think CE 5.0 supported this so they must have drivers or other customizations to support it.

2. WPA2 personal with AES or just ugly old WEP ?

3. I assume it's a USB attachment ?

Thanks again for any insight owners might provide.

I cannot answer those three questions of yours, but I can share a bit of my experience with the JE100 concerning wifi.
- the wifi dongle is not very convenience to use, you have a 5" extension cord with a usb stick attached hanging from the unit while using it, very annoying.
- Battery consumption is, more or less, doubled when wifi is on. Your usable battery life would reduced to about 1 hour or less.
- If you plan to surf the web, forget it. Web page(with graphics) display on JE100 is very S L O W W W..... This is due to limitation of the hardware.

But apart from this I am very happy with my JE100...

Hope this help.
