1999Re: [midatlanticretro] Looking for things to do with SIMMs
- Jan 2, 2006Kelly,
Early Pentiums that use 72-pin SIMMs make excellent routers - just add two or
three NICs stir in M0n0wall, bake for 15 minutes and you have a very flexible
router. If one of the NICs is a Wi-Fi card, you have a really cool wireless
router with features seen only in commercial-grade Wi-Fi equipment.
I think we already discussed my "need" for a set or two of 4M 30-pin SIMMs (4
or 8 sticks) for my 486 machine.
If you can find a nice set of 32M 72-pin SIMMs, they might work well to build
a NetBEUI to TCP/IP bridge using NT as the OS. I have some vague idea that
this could be useful for the museum.
