Hi everyone

Can anyone offer any guidance on how to set up WiFi in coffin? Iíve searched google and have not found much information. I bought an easynet card which I know is 3com. I installed the driver then launched the wizard. I entered the ssid and password and it said complete but I donít know what to do next. I donít want to use easynet software and would prefer to use whatís already in coffin

Hi Michael, have you made any progress since you posted this? I'm also "stuck" in not getting Wifi setup on my PCMCIA card from Retro Ready. In this case, linksys hardware.

I initially thought my hidden SSID might be an issue, but I am now broadcasting the SSID and the Amiga (Coffin OS 54 and 55) is not finding it.  I believe I put the DNS server information where it is supposed to be and selected the Prism2 driver.

Thought I would check in with you

Have you set your router to 802.11a/b only? The old 16 bit PCMCIA wifi cards can only connect if the router is set up like that.

Good reminder, but yet I have it set to 802.11 b/g/n at 2.4ghz.  My router will only do 802.11a in 5ghz mode. I assume B is fine though.

Same here, i got a Fritz 7590 Router, can't get any connection to my Amiga. With old one was no trouble.
I switched my Smartphone as Mobile Hotspot between Fritz 7590 and Amiga600. That works well

Please also provide information on WEP / WPA[123]. If in doubt, start with WEP, as many of those cards are not capable of WPA. Linux compensates with SW implementation, so other OS is not the benchmark.

That is a good point to start with WEP/WPA. I'm supposed to have WPA2 flashed to this card, but who knows.

WPA2 PSK works well with my PCMCIA WLAN card
