Hello all - I hope someone can help.

I have had 50 custom boards made based on the Max32 with wifi shield only to find that my manufacturer has populated the boards with the incorrect wifi modules.

I need the MRF24WG0MA chips (802.11 g) and they havd supplied me with MRF24WB0MA chips (802.11 b) which will not work in my application.

Edited - Found them at MicrochipDirect - thanks Brian.

Hi Ian,

Are you looking for a different supplier, if so here is the Digi-Key webpage to order the exact part:

Otherwise, what does it mean that MRF24WBOMA chips will not work with your application? Are you talking about a hardware design constraint or a software design constraint that will not work with your application?
