I just looked through the calmira_tips archives, looking for the version
of Calmira that'll run on NT 3.51, and happened to find this unanswered

It's a bit late, but anyway:
Web access via ISDN here in .de is quite easy if you can find an ISDN
card with Win 3.1 (CAPI) drivers (I have a Teledat 150 PCI, which is
nothing but the first version of the Fritz!Card PCI - dunno if the
latter also includes Win 3.1 drivers, though). Then you can access the
'net via the software v2.x (reportedly 3.0 will also work) of well-known
ISP T-Online. (No provider hopping, you see.) The only drawback is that
Java in Netscape >= 4.05 will stop working and freeze the browser
instead. DSL is not much more complicated - a DSL router with integrated
PPPoE support is the main component here. With such a thing, all the
computers in a network can access the 'net provided they have TCP/IP
support (which means that you should have WfW 3.11 with the TCP/IP stack
from tcp32b.exe, not plain Win 3.11). Together with a nice 8-port switch
I got of Ebay all my networked machines can access the 'net - regardless
of whether they're running WfW 3.11, Win NT 3.51 (such as this one),
Win95, Win98SE or Win2k. (Finding NICs with WfW 3.11 drivers is not
overly difficult, but beware of those Realtek 8139 thingies - it's not
funny if the system freezes for a few seconds every few minutes; 3Coms
should be better).
