The driver works fine without registering it, you only sacrifice WEP, which
isn't really a sacrifice to me...

Hi Victor & etal,

To bad I can not find the original link I was referring to in my prior post,
but I was able to track this one down (with a condensed
statement) which mentioned it. The prior one stated it a bit more clearly.
(maybe not open sourced but it was opened as stated in this location).

<Excerpt below from the website found on>


Project sources
I opened project sources of my all Newton products, because I became busy
and I have no time to develop for Newton.
All sources are not supported at all. So I won't reply for any questions.
TDK Ethernet
Misc Ethernet

Hiroshi, please consider gifting the rights to the code to the WNA
(Worldwide Newton Association) I would suggest that the WNA take over the
old and new registrations.
They could accept donations for the driver and a portion of the monies (if
legal) forwarded to Hiroshi. This would enable the continued use of the WiFi
Drivers and also compensate Hiroshi for the development time he has invested

Sorry 'bout the rambling... it's not really a problem for me since I have
licenses, but for those still entering the Newton WiFi Scene I understand
the frustration...

Correct me IF I'm wrong in my understanding.

God bless,
Sonny Hung
