Connecting A1200 to PC
Exactly what PCMCIA adaptor do i need for my A1200.. and is it okay to connect it via a hub, which also has broadband plugged into it? And what type of Ethernet cable do i need, i would of thought standard patch (because of the hub).
What software do i need, both for the Amiga and for the PC?
if you have tested a brand of Floppy disks that are 1.44mb (PC formatted), that work on the Amiga, could you tell me which?
I know i've got some software and music, i haven't found on the net.... waiting to be turned into ADFs.
Sorry if previous threads have answered some of these questions, but a sort and simple answer would be REALLY handy!!!

Any pcmcia card thats ne2000 and 16bit will work.. well some wont like the 3com's because of the stupid case design on the things
Do a search using webferrit or your fave search engine and you will find a list of compatible ether cards for the amiga!
Kingston KNE-PC2T 10mb ethernet pcmcia card
cnet.device - from aminet to drive the card!
NetconnectV3 - for its TCP stack!
Samba - for file sharing!
cardreset - in my C drawer to envoke the missing reset on a1200's
*I should buy the proper reset board but the cardreset bodge works well for me
Also the internet sharing sounds like a good idea! I might try and give it a shot and see if it works! dont see why not...
if you have more than 1 pc you will need a hub and the straight cat5 cables! if its just an amiga and 1pc then you need a cat5 crossed cable to make a peer2peer network
How does your broadband modem connect to the pc? is it usb or ethernet?
About using HD floppy's on the amiga... I personally have used loads of em! cheapo's and expensive and none have ever played up.. but some people's amiga's hate them so I cant say for defo that they work 100% for everyone....

I tried another one that wouldnt fit. I think the"Cardbus" type PCMCIA2 cards wont fit.
Gotta hate that stupid non-standard case design!
