I have one and it works great with my II+. I use it with Contiki and can browse pages and see them in text only. Be patient when setting up the TCPIP. It works good but everything must be perfect for it to work.

So have you tried it out yet?

Now that is awesome.

A lot of Ethernet solutions for smaller machines 'cheat' by using a microcontroller to offload the TCP/IP processing. This looks like a raw Ethernet interface, and all of the ARP and TCP/IP processing is being handled on the Apple directly. That doesn't leave a lot of room for applications, and it's really amazing that Contiki can squeeze so much in.

How well does that thing work? Is there anything holding the ethernet cable to the case so you don't yank it out by accident and pull the card out while running?

Recently I got a hold of a IIgs ROM 3, a Transwarp GS, and an 8MB RAM card, with my Rev C Apple SCSI card I have a decent system and was wondering what to do with it.
