New and improved net4801 case

We’re proud to present the new Yawarra net4801 case.

Here’s what great about our net4801 case design:

  • it’s powdercoated matt black
  • you get easy access to the second serial port via a serial extension cable to a DB9 connection mounted in the rear of the case
  • you can access the PCI card via a removable blanking plate – punch holes to suit your application, or leave it out altogether
  • it’s a stylish black colour with matching hex screws
  • it has mounting holes on the underside of the case for attaching DIN rail clips (sold separately)
  • it’s made from aluminium so it’s light yet durable, and has excellent heat dissipation qualities
  • and it’s manufactured right here in Australia

Did we mention it’s black?

Happy Holiday Season!

Christmas & New Years information

We know, we know, it’s only November and here we are talking about Christmas already. But since this will be our last news for 2005, this has to be done. So we’ll make it as quick and painless as possible.

Tuesday, 20 Dec – The latest you should place (and pay for) your order, if you want it to arrive before Christmas.
You’ll need to order even earlier if you’re outside of the Express Post area (ask us if you’re not sure). Of course we’ll happily process your last minute order, but we just can’t guarantee it’ll arrive in time. So get in early, OK?

Friday 23 Dec, 5:30PM – When we close for our Christmas break.
You’re more than welcome to place orders via the website during this period, but we won’t be answering the phones, shipping orders, or responding to emails until we reopen.

Monday 9 Jan, 9:00AM – When we reopen after our Christmas break.

Please note that in 2006 our opening hours will be 9:00AM to 5:30PM, Monday to Friday, Melbourne time.

Have a Happy Christmas and a Merry New Year.

Thank you to everyone who has supported us in 2005 and we look forward to seeing you again in 2006.

In other news…

New products

We’re now offering the WRAP 2 Outdoor (1A1E), which has only one antenna punchout in the case, giving you even more options when buying a WRAP 2 Outdoor.

Price changes

We’ve dropped the price of every CF card in our range by $5, but our supply of 64MB and 256MB SanDisk cards is almost exhausted, so you’d better be quick.

This means that the base price for our WRAP 1-1, WRAP 1-2, WRAP 2 Outdoor (2A1E) and net4801 packs have also gone down by $5.

Product changes

We haven’t changed anything this month, but we’re planning to do a bit of housekeeping on our shop for the new year. Keep an eye out for simpler options, some reorganisation and extra functionality.

Extra bits

OpenBSD images updated

Our OpenBSD images for the WRAP and net4801 have been updated to OpenBSD 3.8. Please visit our OS images page for more information.

New FAQs

We’ve added the answers to some FAQs, including:

  • What’s the root password for the OpenBSD / Voyage / m0n0wall image?
  • Why do I get garbage when I connect to the serial console?

Browser bugs fixed

Our sincere apologies to everyone who has tried to use our online shop with Konqueror or Safari. We think we’ve finally fixed the problems, and we appreciate everyone’s feedback and help to sort this out. And while we were there, we tweaked things for Opera users as well.

If you find any other problems or have suggestions for our website, please send us some feedback.
