Hey

I dont have any usb ports on my ultrasparc, so does anyone know if there is a way to get wireless internet in the ethernet port?

Any ideas?

Thanks

It's probably possible, but I wouldn't know exactly how.. However, there are PCI wireless cards. Do you have a PCI port? If yes, that should work.

If you have some extra cash laying around you could buy yourself a wireless ethernet bridge.

No it's search software is non-free software, although runs on linux.

They do however have a little Open Source Section
http://code.google.com/projects.html

otherwise they are proprietary. Tho it is good that they support *nux, it is better than nothing.

Interestingly enough their was something about the creater on tv a few weeks back. And on his salery, you might as well make it open source!

Oh i forgot to answer online bacon
I would suggest getting a pci card.
And i have personally never heard of anything via network port...

I originally had that problem. Tho my card supposedly worked on lin, alas it did not when i got it.
I considered sending it back, but never got round to it. So
I moved the wireless/router into my room, put network sockets into the wall, and wired them all up.
Now my parents comps use the wireless card.
And i have 3 access points in my room
