Internal Ethernet for PowerBook 1400

Send Article to a Friend

Internal Ethernet for PowerBook 1400 -- Dayna Communications, Inc. recently announced plans to ship an internal Ethernet adapter for the PowerBook 1400 series this spring. The 10Base-T adapter will install under the laptop's keyboard rather than in one of the computer's two PC Card slots. Dayna and other manufacturers already offer PowerBook-compatible PC Cards with 10Base-T or 10Base-2 (thin) Ethernet ports, and combination cards with Ethernet ports and data/fax modem features.
