rui, i use a regular 3Com cable - i guess you can find this one anywhere, in
any computer shop that sells PCMCIA NIC's. the only difference to the
farallon cable is the colour and the RJ45 contact (its a rubbered protected
one on the farallon and a simple RJ45 on the 3com.)

i believe the 3com cables wont cost you more than some $10. get one now,
because it will consume less batts than the "frog" minihub.

PS: one thing i like with the farallon is that everything they made was
newton green :)
