Hey Benjamin,

There is only 1 802.11b card that I know will work in the Newton.

It is the Lucent WaveLAN Silver (also says on front "Turbo 11 MB" and "compliant
IEEE 802.11").
AND it has to be Part Number = P/N: 012372A.

Another draw back is that these cards WILL NOT connect to an Apple Base Station
or any other WAP (Wireless Access Point). They will only talk to another 802.11
device in AdHoc mode on channel 3.
