Features of 802.11 Radio
Mark Willis said (many years ago):
Panasonic makes a cordless brick-sized "cordless modem phone" deal, limited to 33.6k baud IIRC; I have one, can get the part number if you want. There also are a number of wireless NICs in PCMCIA, ISA, PCI, and Parallel Port formats, at varying prices (From 800kbps to lots faster for more $$$); IBM "Wireless LAN Entry" lines, either the 8227 or 92G7787, or the 80G0900 or 80G1000; About $40ish per NIC; see http://www.networking.ibm.com/wireles/wdprods/jb.htm, http://www.fivepoints.net/ibmwireless.html, http://www.networking.ibm.com/wireles/wdprods/jb.htm, http://www.networking.ibm.com/wirenew/wdprods/ge.htm#lanentry, http://www1.s390.ibm.com/bookmgr-cgi/bookmgr.cmd/Shelves/E2S0BK01, http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/cgi-bin/bookmgr/BOOKS/SG244466/CCONTENTS, http://www.crisp.demon.co.uk/wireless.html for Linux driver) AeroComm makes something in this line IIRC. So do many other companies. Linux and Wireless LANs: http://www.hpl.hp.com/personal/Jean_Tourrilhes/Linux/ Wireless LAN from Laptop to a desktop (or other Laptop) on the LAN, another machine on the LAN has a modem / DSL / Cable Modem connection to the Internet; You run IPRoute, WinGate, a Linux Router, or a Gnat Box to cross-connect these (Among others!): http://www.mischler.com/ for IPRoute http://projects.shn.nu/homenetwork/iproute/index.shtml http://www.linuxrouter.org/ http://lrp.c0wz.com/ http://www.gnatbox.com/ http://www.wingate.com/
