  Author  Subject: Serial Network Card?

I've got an old 386 GRiD laptop I'd like to hook up to my ethernet just to
play around with. (I'm thinking diskless X terminal, as it has a 20MB hard
drive.) There are no PC card slots on it. I've heard that serial NICs are
cheap, but I'm not sure how readily available they are. All the net
searches I do result in lots of pages concerning router hardware, and ebay
shows pretty much the same thing.

Does anyone have any idea how I could go about getting a NIC that could
attach to a COM port on the back of this machine?


Your random bit from the Grimoire of Unspeakable Knowledge :
504. None of this matters to me. I ship things the old-fashioned way:
plate tectonics.
