Installing wifi card
« on: July 30, 2021, 04:17:51 AM »
Hi, I'm installing HP compaq wifi card (WL110) but I noticed that no light comes on when I turn on the amiga. Is this an error? And how can I check if my amiga recognizes the card?
Thanks!

You should start by finding out if the card is at all supported by any driver, a good start is here.

As we are talking about wifi, this is the better start: http://aminet.net/package/driver/net/prism2v2

When talking about Ethernet, this can be used, too: http://aminet.net/package/driver/net/3c589

The light won't come on until the card is activated by the TCP/IP stack.

I am actually doing a wireless card (A1200) setup now too..  Any good walk through tutorials on what to do, all the setup and how to set things for all the options?  I.E. a 'setup network card for dummies' type thing?      I downloaded the Prism package but all it does is install the driver .. from there not sure where to go or what to do next...


Take it light...... :-D

Well, did you read the file named “manual”?

There are tutorials online. Here is one dating from this year. It's specific to a card and part 2 is about installing a TCP/IP stack which is where I think you are up to but it should be enough for you to work out the steps you need to take.

Sure.. Do you have a manual?  What I downloaded did not have much so maybe I downloaded the wrong thing then...  Prism 2.2 is what I downloaded.

Thanks..  Been so long that I forgot most of all this stuff so as I get back into it, a lot comes back to me..  But things like this can be a pain to try to remember specifics 30 years later.
