Hi guys just wanting to get gather some intel (or should that be Motorola lol) when using any of the last few versions of Coffin I cannot for the life of me get Roadshow working reliably with my Prism2 based wifi card! As soon as I switch to MiamiDX it all works fine other than I have to redo all the menu scripts to suit Miami instead of Roadshow and although not hard still a pain in the bottom!!! Just wanted to know others experiances?

Are you using the one supplied on coffin? If you have bought roadshow it should be ok, but if not its just a trial version on coffin which I think is time limited.

Roadshow included is limited demo.

Either set up Miami (as you did), live with demo limits or register Roadshow, which is paid but advanced to Miami.

So from your experiances is it worth me buying? I have read that it is a faster TCP/IP stack but am thinking for SAMBA share and Aminet/EAB/here browsing it might just be worth sticking to Miami?

Roadshow works well with my PCMCIA prism2 network card

Sadly, AmigaOS never got a real standard TCP/IP, part of Amiga curse. But competition is not strong, either.

    Yes, Roadshow is best and only Amiga TCP/IP in development/updated. Current and future support is mutual benefit. Demo has 15 minutes limit
 
    Web info EXTERNAL LINK   
  Shop EXTERNAL LINK   
  SDK EXTERNAL LINK     
    There is even a Commodity "Roadie" similar to Miami ones (not tested on Vamp!) EXTERNAL LINK   
    Miami is a cheap ticket, but it will never be better.

I Thank you both for your input - while we are on the subject of Amiga networking... does anybody know how to use the time set feature in miami? I have it set with a ntp server address but it just dosnt seem to do anything?

isn't Miami only a demo and must be purchased too? (how?)
=> AmiTCP 3 r0cks0rz!

Roadshow is imho still the best option until a good working DHCP client is made for other TCP/IP stacks. Until then..

define "best"^^

never change a running system -  my startnet script did not change for >100 years!


.key IPADDRESS
.bra {
.ket }
.def IPADDRESS 192.168.0.222
