I'm wondering if what the gumstix wiki states about the wifistix connector being a "Hirose U.FL ultra-miniature coaxial receptacle" is still accurate. (http://docwiki.gumstix.org/Frequently_asked_questions/Wifi)
Yes, it's correct.
I was also wondering about the compatibility between W.FL and U.FL, would plugging a W.FL cable into a U.FL receptacle fundamentally work? I've tried it, it seems like it fits, and both have the dual semicircle contacts in the middle, but the connection is a bit loose.
I don't know. I suspect it won't work as well, which is why they have 2 different names for the 2 different connectors :)
