Re: [NTLK] IEEE 802.11b (also known as WiFi)

Date: Thu Jun 20 2002 - 06:45:26 EDT

I have a mixed wired/wireless PC network at home, no more complicated to set
up than normal ethernet. I haven't tried adding a Newton via wireless though
(I've used a wired Newton OK). Everything works fine except that the 100 m
range claim is for open plan offices not solid stone houses, and I haven't
yet worked out a way to get a signal out in the garden... The neat bit is
surfing the web on my Fujitsu stylistic (8" pen tablet running Windoze)

  We have a mixed wired ethernet, Airport network at my home (all
Macs) that works quite well. I'm unfamiliar with Windows networking
issues, but someone else on this list (Ed?) I'm sure can walk you through
those issues.
