On USB ethernet driver in development:

bluenose> STD have a USB wi-fi device: [link] (Simtec stack only though, it appears)

After their second talk at Wakefield 06 Matt (I think) explained that the experience of developing the USB wi-fi devices for RISC OS had made them wary about doing the same for USB Bluetooth - the core chips are proprietory and can get changed without warning, so months of developent is suddenly wiped out and required once more for devices which have the same appearence and part number.

Hence the apparently expensive USB wi-fi dongles currently available. Bought in bulk to reduce the per-unit price, now taking up shelf space but too expensive from initial costs and developent time to cut the price and clear out (once STD's stock is gone they're unlikely to get more).
