	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.
