Probably doable, but not without a lot of trouble. It's a 1200, you say? Just get yourself a PCMCIA network card, easy-peasy! ;)

That's what I did for my non-towerised A1200. Some years back, work was throwing out some old PCMCIA network cards so I grabbed one to try out and it worked great. Just configured it for the LAN and let the ADSL router worry about the internet connection.

Would need to have adb (android debug bridge) compiled for AmigaOS
Then using adb + proxoid = internet connexion with your smartphone via usb

The stand alone source for adb is here (I mean the one without all the other Android os sources)

https://github.com/karfield/adb

If someone good enough with usb/network stuff can recompile it ....

Maybe a busted slot. You cleaned it and checked the pins?

How about a Plipbox?

There's probably better tools to show this type of info, but the Workbench tool 'PrepCard' should recognise the card. At least then you'll know your Amiga can actually see it.
