    Ok i got alittle bored when i was waiting for my test rom to load up on my laptop. So a idea popped in to my head. Hey why dont you open up your CMP738B and see whats inside. And so i did and this is what i found. The one on the right is the Wifi hardware. Rt2870sta. It looks like they used a USB wifi stick and took the plastic and usb off of it and replaced with a small 4 pin molex connecter.

    Nice... So... If one were to get a different USB wireless card that would otherwise fit, desolder the connecter from it, and then solder it to the wires currently connecting the stock wifi, would it in theory be possible to upgrade the card to a better one with Wireless N capability perhaps? Not saying that is something the masses should attempt, just a thought should my wifi ever fail.

    In theory yes. If its useling a ralink hardware you might be able it get bin file and change the setting or just rename the file to the old file name so it will still use the same path and config but it would be using a much better hardware. Hmmm i wonder if a usb wifi stick would work on this tablet.

    I wonder if it is possible to use an Ovation MC760... You can get those on Virgin Mobile fairly cheap and I have one grandfathered onto the $40/Unlimited (5GB before they throttle) plan... Internal 3G would be neat.

    I tried two different netgear sticks and no. All USB WIFI adaptors are driver dependant.

    This tablet has the same hardware as 35 different usb wifi stick models. Its using a rk2870sta driver. Made by RalinkTech. Same driver as a linux system would use.

    Belkin and linksys used them in a few models.

    Could the 4GB internal flash memory be increased. If so, how?
