I have an iPAQ 3850 with the updated PPC2003. I want to
connect wireless. Can I just purchase a WLAN 802.11G and
PC card and slide that into the expansionpac and be on my
way to accessing the internet?

If the chosen 802.11g has WM2003 drivers and there is an 802.11g Access
point close by, yes.

But, there isn't any current 802.11g card that I know of that works with a
Pocket PC.

AFAIK 802.11g cards are all of the CardBus type (gold strip on the
connector end) and CardBus is not supported on PPC expansion.

If the PC card has WinCE drivers then yes, you should be able to setup your
WiFi connection Access point, install the drivers on the PPC and run through
the setup process that comes with the card.

Note:
If your WiFi Access point connects to the internet, be sure to pick "The
Internet" when the first connection bubble appears when you insert the card
otherwise it will think it is connected to a "Work" network and will try to
use a proxy to get to your internet sites and paths.

Note2: I suggest you make sure the drivers for the PC card are compatible
with WinCE first.
