So I was rummaging around the MSU Surplus barn and found this Dayna Serial Port Ethernet Adapter.. Any Idea how rare these things are.. I cant find anything about it online. It came in its original box with the software floppy cables and manual. Seems it will work with SSW 6 up to 7.5.5. I managed to put my Mac SE online with it.

I'd call it uncommon but not

I'd call it uncommon but not rare in the sense that it's valuable.

Farallon also made a similar connector called EtherWave, thing was they were slow but they had versions that would connect to your PowerBooks SCSI port, serial and aaui ports. Neat part was they could be daisy chained like appletalk so you did not need a hub.
