Xircom Wireless LAN Module for Palm Handhelds (PWE1130)

I can't find any good information about this discontinued and unsupported wifi cradle.

Does anyone know if this will work with a Palm Vx?

Does anyone know if there are ANY wifi options for a Palm Vx?

That there's an M500 . . .

and any device which works with one of those ain't gonna work with a Vx. Sadly, the only way to get a Vx connected is a serial device. wifi serial anyone?

Really, if you can get ahold of one of these xircom devices you might as well fork out $20 to $40 for an M500.

ah... what's the point?

Thanks for responding...

But I guess there's no point in doing that... when I could get a T5 for less than 3 times the price.

got me one

For ~$60 ebay-bucks I got me a second M500 and a one of these jobbies. Even after playing with it, I have yet to see the value in a networked Palm. Cool nonetheless.
Cool Mac

Tiger has it built in

Apple's Remote Desktop client (which is really a server, and Apple's Remote Desktop Application is really a client) is built into Tiger now.
Under Preferences/Sharing/Apple Remote Desktop/Access Priviledges

you can specify to allow vnc clients to connect, and specify a password for it (which is recommended since VNC passwords are sent non-secure, don't want to use your root p/w here!).

There is a way to use ssh tunneling, I bet, to have a secure VNC session... but I know not how it is done.
