If I remember correctly,
- Netwave was a division of Xircom. They produced "Xircom Netwave"
- Netwave became a separate company. Product was renamed to
"Netwave AirSurfer" (non-plus).
- Separate product, "Netwave AirSurfer Plus" came.
- Bay bought Netwave.
- (maybe here are some products, which are basically idential to
"Netwave AirSurfer Plus"... I don't remember)
- "BayStack 650" and "BayStack 660" came out.
