I'm pretty sure you're mistaken about the Roamer being 802.11. But I'd
LOVE to be proven wrong -- I have an AirPort! ;-) Once they get
AppleTalk working over the software base station that runs on your Mac (I
think only TCP/IP works at the moment) then I'd be able to do wireless
NCU and everything, anywhere, with just my PowerBook and Newton and
WaveLAN cards for each.


I wonder if that fellow in Japan who did all the Ethernet cards drivers
would release his source code? I recall someone mentioning an Open
Source WaveLAN or 802.11 driver. If both occurred, I'd DEFINITELY be
interested in looking at hacking my own WaveLAN driver for Newton.
Hmmmm. Have to thing about contacting the fellow in Japan to see.

Anybody out there with more knowledge of that card (Victor??)
