I am getting myself a nell pcmcia adapter in a short time (already
bought it on ebay, waiting for it to arrive). I planned to use it with a
orinoco silver card. The machine itself is a IPC with 36MB of RAM, I
use it for my pppoe connection routing. Since I got myself a laptop and
it has wireless support, I plan to make my IPC a wireless gw too (only 1
client=laptop, and since my internet connection is 512/256 I only wish
it to work so fast (it can send files over ftp to my main computer
almost 500KB/s, so it should have enough power for sofware endian
conversion, I hope), if I need to share files with my pc, I just plug it
in my ethernet hub, but it would be nice to get my home wifi compliant)
Will it work? Or am I expected to see lockups and panics? I had no
problems with crosscompileing the kernel with nell or wihack, but since
i don't have the nell yet, i'm just asking if it will work or if buying
it was just a waste of money.
i use a sparc classic for a wireles gateway and dialup box.
it works flawlessly.
