I just recently came into possession of a old AST Premium Exec notebook computer. The only ports it has are a serial port and a parallel port and it runs DOS. I thought that with the serial port I could get WiFi working with a Serial-to-USB adapter or something and write some software on the DOS end to communicate with the adapter. Anybody know of any WiFi adapters that go over a serial port / work over a serial port?
Note: I have a USB WiFi adapter anyway so if that could work that would be good.


I remember the first time I woke up from a 20 year sleep. :) Anyway, there are several RS232 to Wifi adapters out there (another). I've never tied one tho!

  • Cool... I'll check it out. – Isaac Waller Aug 2 '09 at 3:35
