New WiFi card for Newton in my collection – Enterasys Networks RoamAbout

I have a very ugly habit of buying and testing unknown PCMCIA cards. These are usually WiFi cards, network cards (LAN) or memory cards. Sometimes I can find something interesting. This time I managed to get a WiFi card.ย For a penny ๐Ÿ™‚

This card is released by Enterasys Networks, Inc, and the model name is ‘RoamAbout’. This is 5V and 16-bit card, of course. And – what is most important – working with Newton!

What is interesting, Newton WiFi driver recognise this card as a ‘Cabletron RoamAbout’, which is on official Newton compatible WiFi card list.

Next week I will do couple tests with this card.

Ps. If you want to check which WiFi cards works with Newton, that list can be helpful:ย WiFi cards compatible with Newton
