Jim Drew: don't overcomplicate (and risk never finishing) the card by listening to weird requests. If it does what the C64 one does it'd be really cool.
The Amiga 1200/600 have PCMCIA which supports WiFi and is reasonably priced but other classic Amigas are expensive to add ethernet and/or do not support WiFi. The C64 does not have web browsers, aminet, e-mail programs, online games, etc. Only allowing telnet and modem capabilities is lame on the Amiga. I wouldn't buy hardware for such limited use and I expect Amiga retro gamers (unfortunately about all that is left of the Amiga) are unlikely to buy.

There were several serial.device replacements back in the day.

The bugs and performance likely improved in later versions of the AmigaOS so I don't know how relevant they would be today.

Would it be possible to allow a WiFi "null modem" connection between 2 Amigas for games like Stunt Car Racer, Lotus II/III, Falcon, Skidmarks, Alien Breed 3D, etc.?
