Has anyone gotten the new catalog with this in it? Sure looks promising to me. It's a serial to 802.11b box, with two serial ports. This makes me think that two or more (with a switchbox) vintage computers (I'm thinking the ST's) can get online for at least file sharing while using wireless. If I understand correctly, the thing is set up via the wifi through a modern "host" computer, and told how to talk to the serial port devices. I'm gonna scrape the change together to get this thing from Mouser. if anyone else has anything to add as far as getting older computers to talk this way, please share! Is this too good to be true?
