Thanks for the tips on the simplicity of connecting two or more Thinkers
I thought I was gonna have to buy WAPS and routers and a Wangenstein and
gizmo's and... Well you get the picture.
It's too easy and cheap!!!
I was by Radio Shack today for something else and saw they were carring
Linksys stuff (perferred as I have always had good service Linksys)
Picked up a w/less pcmcia, Reg 79.00, sale, 69.00, mail in rebate brings
it to 59.00.
Long story short ...... 770z and A30P communicating quite nicely!!!!
AND NO STINKIN' WIRES!!!!!!!!!
