Welcome to IWETHEY!

New There are ways...
Does it have a PCMCIA slot? If so, one of [link|http://www.bb-elec.com/product_family.asp?FamilyId=23|these] might do the trick for you. They're not cheap though.

You can even get an [link|http://www.bb-elec.com/product.asp?sku=DC-WSP-01-S&TrailType=Sub&Trail=26|802.11 to RS-232 serial converter]. It's even more, of course.

There are probably cheaper solutions out there. This is just to indicate there are many ways to skin this particular opossum.

Good luck.

Cheers,
Scott.
New Holy crap!
For $100 I might be able to find an old PCMCIA modem-for-real-honest-to-God-modem on eBay.
