Your Newt is a completly stand alone capable machine
fully able to browse the internet through the T1
connection with no intervention through your
Powerbook. Go to Egghead, get a 4 port hub,
get some cables, plug your PB into one port, purchase
an ethernet card (also from egghead)I use the dlink's amazing to say the least.
That's all there is to it! Set up your own
mini-network on your desktop at work! I've got a 12
port hub on my desk, that I've got two Newts plugged
into, a WinCE, and 5 of my "gaming buddies" (the
network guys don't like us using the existing network
for our head-to-head we our own and string
some really long ethernet!)
Load the right software, and viola! your Newt is
surfin' the net dude! T1 speeds!
