Probably as much as the your setup being expensive has to do with anything

I had to confirm this with the programmer, to whom you'd be sending the parcel - the answer is positive. Please contact me via e-Mail, so we can complete the details.

Great, I was thinking of buying an X-Surf100 for my A4000, but being an A3640 user I held out on buying one because I feared having the same problems roomeo had.

I hope that this will get resolved soon

Update: Since i live in Norway it was to much hassle with paperwork and customs, so my machine stays where it is. Jens asked me a little bit more on my config and i have sent an image of my harddrive for debugging purposes.

Maybe there are more ways we can help Jens. I have an A3000 with A3640 and am holding back on buying the X-Surf / RapidRoad combo because of the issues.

I wouldn't mind helping to debug if I know what exactly to do (I am not a (Amiga) developer) and maybe Jens can give us some discount as a thank you

Was installing the MAS-Player today and was going to transfer some files using usb stick. Poseidon reacted with normal sound effect as I inserted the stick into Rapidroad, but couldnt read the stick.
Inserted it into my Wintel pc, and it said the stick was corrupted and I had to reformat.

Left the computers for about 20 minutes and came back with the A1200 crashed.
Restarted, but now it showed black screen, only with a floppy clicking sound.
Rapidroad usb led showed no light.
Shut Amiga off and disconnected Rapidroad. A1200 booted normally.
Reinstalled rapidroad, still no light or boot.

I assume the clockport is fine, but Rapidroad is fried....?

Any update or progress on the A4000/40 issue? Still running mine in Zorro 2 mode a year later

Hi: I've just ordered a RapidRoad clockport version for my A1200 from AmigaKit. I'm wondering if I can try a Wifi usb adapter, if it can work.

I don't know if it could be faster than my Pcmcia wifi card. I use an ACA30/56.

BTW I will use a clockport expander as I'm planning to use the Prisma Megamix in a near future.

Certain USB-WiFi dongles work. Depends on the chipset, Poseidon supports a few. Which on the other hand means that not every dongle is supported.

Cheers,

If the LED on RapidRoad remains off although it's connected properly, the unit is dead. Please contact your reseller (or me if you've bought directly) for service. Do NOT try to connect it the other way round, as that may damage even more!

I now have a computer here where we can reproduce the issue. That's already a huge step forward :-)

Well, I wrote to you a number of times because that download site you've provided did not work - neither for me, nor for Chris. No need to fix that any more, as we have an A4000D here that shows the issue: X-Surf-100 working fine in Z3 mode, but RapidRoad will only work in Z2 mode.

Now Chris needs to find some time to write a few test routines. You may know that he's not my employee, but an external developer, so I don't have any influence on his schedule. I do however expect that he'll come across with an idea or two within the next weeks.
