I have a PB 1400C that I just recieved from my employer...

OS 8.5.1
64Mb
And it has a PowerPort Plantinum Card....

I want to get this baby Internet ready and hopefully part of the wireless networking...It is very slow and I have no idea what the PPP card is and its function???

Any advice on adding some juice to this amchine and making it internet reasy...I have symaptico DSl???

Any advice on adding some juice to this amchine and making it internet reasy...I have symaptico DSl??? You'll need an ethernet PC Card and a *dongle,
Then you'll be able to hook it up to a router.

Another option is to get a wireless connection via the PC card
and a wireless access point.

It might be a good idea to upgrade the laptop to OS 8.6,
It's a free download from Apple.

*(A dongle is basically and cord type extension with an
ethernet port that attaches to the PC card)

A quick search turned up this:

If I gather correctly...This is a Modem/Ethernet card and you
should be able to select the ethernet port in the TCP/IP panel.

From that point you should be able to hook it up to your DSL
modem or your network via a router.
