If you use a soekris with a PCI slot you could possibly use the PCI -> 4
MiniPCI card..

Subject: [Soekris] Additional mini-PCI slots

Is there any way to increase the number of mini-PCI slots on a soekris
board?

There seems to be a move in the wireless LAN world away from PC-Card towards
mini-PCI as the interface of choice, particularly if you want external
connectors. The 4521 has 2 PC-Card slots but only 1 mini-PCI, and I wondered
if there is any way to get more than 1 mini-PCI slot - the more I can get
the happier I'd be.

Can this be done with some type of extension board, or is it more involved
than that ? If it's more involved a simple explanation of the problem would
be really appreciated.

I think the boards are great and buy a lot of them, but looking a few months
forward the limitation of only 1 mini-PCI slot is going to be a really big
issue for me.

Thanks,

Tony Wright.
