I have been looking at the Lantronix Wiport link as something to use for making the Orb wireless in a way other than using the paging network. It is basically an 802.11b enabled device server with two serial ports which could be used to control the orb. I suppose RS232 transcievers would work as well but the WiPort has more features. Has anyone else found other possibilities? Bluetooth maybe?

This looks very interesting. Have you already contacted them to find a reseller / price?

The single unit price is $119 USD, the development kit is $299. Obviously this is pretty expensive. I'm going to see if I can get them to send me a dev kit for free or get some sort of discount or something. I should be receving reseller information from them soon. I will post updates.

The xport doesn't make it wireless but does give the serial kit a net connection. link
