   My local distributor in North Acton has both the Netlink DG834 and DG834G
in stock, that is both with and without the wireless card. It seems that the
wireless card if fitted can be switched off but the non-wireless version can
not be upgraded to the wireless version. The wireless version was quoted at
about 85.00, the non-wireless version about 30.00 less, both + vat.
