Stacey -

Sorry to hear it didn't work. Victor Rehorst mentioned to me that the
Newton drivers would probably take an ID string hack to work, the same
way the Farallon drivers do in order to work with other 3COM cards.

I'd suggest coordinating with him on the hack, or perhaps whoever made
the 3COM card hack. I don't have an AirPort but have been meaning to
get one and a PCMCIA card for my PowerBook. Do you know if Proxim has
Mac drivers? Does the proxim card work at 11Mbps or 2Mbps?
