Just got a PowerBook 3400 and much to my dismay, there seems to be no easy way to hook up with our office thinnet network. The 3400 has a RJ11 port and nowhere can I fin a transverter that will connect RJ11 with thinnnet.  What can I do other than buy a PC card with the appropriate connect?

There will be only to ways. You can bue a card as you mentioned or you have to use an hup which can convert RJ11 to thinwire.

The 3400 has two PCMCIA slots on the left hand side of the machine near the back. This is typically used for ethernet and modem connections. Global Village has a PowerPort fax/modem/ethernet card that works very well. There must be a thinNet solution available from RJ45 ethernet, but I do not have that information at this time. Hope this helps.
