  1. This is actually a relevant thread. If you look at all the free help offered on NTLK list over the years... in relation to all that free help in the Newton community, Newton developers still in existence that charge for their software are a tad greedy.
  2. Browsing on the 1400 when connecting with an Ethernet card via the PC Card slot is always going to be slow, because it is a 16 bit card cage. I know there is an internal ethernet option and I believe that is the fastest way, but not wireless. The PowerBook Wallstreet is much faster in this regard, since its PC Card cage is 32 bit. My 2400c is 32 bit as well, since I modified it as such. I do not know of any hacks to get the 1400's PC card cage to 32 bit.
  3. Too bad! You know where to find us if you change your mind... Thanks.
  4. Yes and no. It is worth what the market is willing to pay for it. And in this economy... And if people need money...
  5. These upgrade cards, their speeds, the differences between them, etc. is probably the most well documented of the powerbook upgrades out there. Compares Sonnet's upgrade cards: http://macspeedzone.com/archive/5.0/bymac/app/PBK14_166Oct00.html User experiences on the Vimage - note the reports of increased heat and decreased battery life: http://forums.xlr8yourmac.com/action.lasso?-search
  6. I know this is a bit off topic, but the 233 Vimage G3 upgrade, IMHO, is not worth the effort. It runs too hot and bleeds the battery. All the best.
  7. Sometimes it can be quirky. So some restarts. Make sure TCP/IP is set to your WAVELAN card, and that you are connecting via DCHP. Set AppleTalk to infrared just to mitigate any interference with your ethernet connection. Restart several times. If it just won't work, download the Orinoco 7.2 wifi driver from versiontracker.com Install it, and try it. Let us know.
  8. I should correct the above: this is a 802.11b card, not g.
  9. Hi: Yes, the card I used works under Classic Mac, even with Apple's stock Airport software. It even does 128 bit encryption under OS 9.x.x How did I find it? I looked and researched very hard. The following instructions tells you everything you need to know, even the model number of the wifi card - the Orinoco OEM wifi PC Card. Couple it with an iBook G4 antennae, and you are off to the races. http://www.thisoldmac.ca/wordpress/2009/05/03/newton-messagepad-20002100-and-powerbook-2400c-internal-wifi-upgrade/
  10. The wifi card will work under OS X, and it is 802.11g - it's an OEM Orinoco, a generic version of Apple's Airport Card used in their laptops. I have also installed the wifi into a Newton and it works great. No problems with cardbus cards from my end either, works perfectly. Glad you enjoyed the video. All the best.
  11. It WILL work. Make sure you install the latest Airport 2.0.4 http://docs.info.apple.com/article.html?artnum=120120
  12. Ok, the video is in reference to: 1. Yuplan keyboard install 2. 96 MB RAM install 3. CardBus hack 4. Internal Wifi installation Exciting? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R8HPspNjHVw
  13. Mail is going rough for me right now. I am getting help from NTLK, and that has been great. I can't say enough good things about Ron Parker and Simon Bell. It does not like Yahoo or Gmail, although US based Yahoo Plus should work. Try Mail V.
  14. Join NTLK list As for advice, the Newton is great, but takes a LONG time and a lot of patience to learn and get working properly. Once we have a proper knowledgebase site working, that clearly details how to get up and running, it will take some time until you have conquered the device.
