The guys at Eye-Fi has updated their Eye-Fi manager and also firmware for the card, now it works with transparent proxy-based internet setting as in Singapore.... So guys, you can buy the Eye-Fi and use it here now... ^^
but without say a network...can it still work?
Cannot, you need a wireless network... you need internet to setup but u can use just a wireless router to make the thing work, but cannot use it with ad hoc network
and oso, how long does it take to beam a full SD card?
It's 802.11G but not fast... a few sec for a single 4-5MB JPEG... only works with JPEG no RAW.
Bad experience for my case. After setup it cannot be detected by my 40D with CF-SD convertor. And after a few formats it can't even be detected by my PC. Hell yeah...!!! Returned and Refund. Now running WFT-E3
