I was just following the instructions in the prism2 manual:

Quote
Under AmigaOS 4, however, it is necessary to start WirelessManager from the S:Startup-Sequence script instead to ensure that a wireless connection is established before the TCP/IP stack starts its DHCP client. Since this cannot be easily done by the install script, the following line should be manually inserted just before AddNetInterface or Network-Startup

I agree with NinjaCyborg - that is less than ideal advice in that manual.

Of course it needs to happen before AddNetInterface, but put it at the top of your Network-Startup, that is where it belongs, and where it won't be overwritten.

In general, no local customizations should be made in the main Startup-Sequence nowadays.

Another benefit is that Network-Startup is executed asynchronously, so the rest of your Startup-Sequence is not delayed by waiting for your network stuff to succeed.

Best regards,

Niels

Well to be fair it probably predates network-startup being the right place for it. Neil is still active so if you have ideas for him write him a line maybe he'll do a new version at some point.

Yes, I think it probably does, since it mentions inserting stuff before the AddNetInterface line in Startup-Sequence.

Today, that line is in Network-Startup.

Best regards,
