Toshiba 3200 questions (wireless?)

Kindly Jay,

For what it is worth, in the beginning, there were a pretty good
number of wireless ISA cards - much of the time, IIRC, they were
essentially PCMCIA<-->ISA bridge type things. It does appear that some
of the ISA Aironet (ISA4800 and maybe the 4500?) cards have DOS driver
support. ( and The only listed requrement is a
16-bit ISA slot. I'm just not quite sure whether the packet driver
wants a 386 to install / run.

There also are some Orinoco PCMCIA cards with DOS support. They could
be used with an ISA<-->PCMCIA bridge. Alas, though, I don't know if
that would be any closer to working with a 286.

Anywho, hope this helps a small bit.

Have a good one! :)
