localtalk / ethernet routers

I'm looking for some make/models of localtalk / ethernet routers so I can connect a LocalTalk Network to an NT network.

I know of the models offered by Asante, so I would like to know of any other models that would accomplish this task.

thanks.

Asante makes the best but if you want to make things complicated you could set up a rinky dink 68k mac with a copy of Apple Ethernet Bridge on it. Localtalk into the printer port, ethernet into the ethernet port, instant bridge. Dunno why you would use that method over the Asante but its possible.

Whats keeping you from using ethernet on the Macs?...even the Centris computers came with AAUI ethernet.

Heh, Well their tech support want nothing to do with my little venture, something about them not recommending this method. However, yourself, and our Macintosh supplier both recommend Asante.
So we'll wait and see....
