    Yup that's it but doesn't have an ext antenna connection like the stock photo shows. Call them maybe they can ship
    It to you.

    The large orange sticker on the Zoom says class 1? Just curious, where did you see class 2?
    Has anyone ever tried one of the MSI wifi bluetooth mini pci combo cards? They are supposed to be MSI only, but when has that stopped us from trying?

    MS6855B I think.

    Didn't notice the internal one had stub on the left compared to the ext
    One. However the stock pic shows the antenna stub too.

    Go here, where I explain my typo. I should have said "Class."

    The Billionton PCMCIA Class 1 Bluetooth Adapter, Model PCBTC1 looks similar, but I do not belive that this is the same card, as TopCop suggests. The Billionton also uses the older CSR BlueCore 02 chip, does the Zoom? The Zoom also have 2 LEDs, the Billionton has 1 and different specs.

    I am thinking of selling my Billionton to a nice XP home, it does not like Win7 and will only run with the dreaded Microsoft Stack there.

    Looks could be deceiving here. ;)
    I believe PC Card Bluetooth cards are on the way out; being replaced by USB devices; as PCMCIA/CardBus is giving way to ExpressCard slots in the newer laptops (some don't even have slots anymore).
