In a related vein, I've discovered in cleaning up my basement that I have some old Proxim Symphony equipment, including a PCMCIA card for which there is a Newton driver.

Proxim Symphony uses an older, slower protocol than 802.11 (WiFi), but it's plenty fast for the Newton.  And, it's so obscure, you're bound to be secure! :-)

Contact me back-channel if you're interested.

Yours in Newtondom,
