Actually, hat's "WaveLAN", not "EtherWave".

WaveLAN is the name Lucent gives it's 802.11 wireless networking cards.
These cards work in PowerBooks such as my 1998 G3 Series to communicate
with the Apple AirPort base station, as well as many other types of
computers, including desktop ones. (There's reportedly a WaveLAN Silver
PCMCIA card inside the Apple AirPort base station).

EtherWave is the daisy-chainable Ethernet cabling from Farallon (sort of
like LocalTalk or Phonenet cabling, but for Ethernet instead of
high-speed serial).
