Ethernet PCMCIA cards (HP 200LX in the LAN)
It is possible to connect the HP 200LX to a local area network (LAN) using a PCMCIA Ethernet card.
Since the PCMCIA slot is occupied by the card, all software that is used to comunicate via LAN needs to be installed on the RAM drive (C:).
Three cards are known to work with the HP 200LX:
- Netgear FA411
- Accton EN2216
- Silicom Ethernet PCMCIA card (this one may have compatibility problems with the doublespeed upgrade)
You can find an example of a quite complex WWW/LX configuration, that I used for many years and that includes usage of an Accton EN2216 ethernet card, here.
Another example setup – by Ted Heise – is described here.
