Serial Connection Internet

Heya,

I wanna connect my Amiga via serial so I can use teh web on it...as I cannot find a 16bit network card.

I'd connect to it like you would with a windows 95 laptop using direct serial connection... thing is I dunno how.

Any ideas?

What does this have to do with coding?

Moved (More hardware related than anything else)

Why not buy an external modem instead?

If you really want to try, search for NullTCP.lha on Aminet

Heys, TEH

there is a serial hack for windows 95 through an using an FTP service to setup a TCPIP stack for the serial port for your amiga, if you want to know more on this ( i actualy did this and got it working in 1996 *i cannot begin to remeber now* Goto aminet and search there for networking.

This is quite an indepth hack so bear that in mind before you continue.


another way as you suggested is a 16bit cardbus network card. you can get these from various places other than ebay.

www.amigakit.com / www.vesalia.de

or

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Amiga-PCMCIA-N...QQcmdZViewItem

(i have two of these from Chris, awsome product!)

Nice and wireless option here.

You can connect your Amiga to a PC running Linux with a Nullmodem Cable and use Miami to dial in. I did this with my A500

I'll give NullTCP a go and see what happens, if that fails i'll go for the networking card way!

Thank you for all the suggestions
