Wow, it looks like they are sold out already!

Do you have any idea when AmigaStore.eu might have them in stock? I am quite eager to buy one of these..

I am interested in one as well! I have been waiting forever to add RAM and IDE to my A500. I have a 16MHz 68HC000 PLCC that is dying for a home.

Is there any update on availability of these, or did all of the sites sell out already? Ive been checking every few days and they are still indicating "Out of stock".

How would this driver work with the Wicher 500i?

https://www.mike-stirling.com/2018/0...he-amiga-1200/

It's for the Kipper2k, but I see no reason why something could not be reused?

Is it just to hook a ENC28J60 up to the Wicher SPI connector (if so, what would be the correct way to do it) and use that spinet.device ?

spinet.device driver does not work on Wicher500i.

Would love to see some documentation on how the Wicher500i SPI ethernet and clock work - eg. how we can connect both and drivers etc.

Wow! I ordered one as well. Great price! I can't wait to have extra RAM and IDE in my 500! It's already been upgraded to kickstart 2.05 with a 2MB chipram upgrade.

Thanks! I ordered one from them and it showed up yesterday! I was a little disappointed to see that it was a version 2A instead of 2C.. but I guess I really do not need the extra memory capability.

I installed my Wicher 500i rev2a last night and made my a500 rev 8a extremely unstable.
Anything over 28mhz freezes my machine. I use a 68000FN20 and 60ns Edo double sided ram bought from Amiga store.
Sometimes when I boot my machine I get a bootup screen saying my board is defective, but if I hit the continue button my a500 still manages to boot into the workbench.
The manual tells me that by holding the left mouse button at boot there should be a boot menu but there isn't any. I can only configure the card with the Wicherconfig tool in Prefs. What am i doing wrong?
