Wifi radio for Terrible Fire CD-32 boards
« on: December 11, 2020, 11:26:46 PM »
Hi All,
I'm a no nothing dummy, but I love Amigas.  Has anyone out there given any thought of how to add a wifi radio
to any of the Terrible Fire boards for the CD32? If that is way beyond any realistic thought I apologize. What
do I know (nothing!). I know Terrible Fire himself has moved on. But it would be truly wonderful to connect to
"Aminet" or any of the other wonderful websites that supports the Amiga infrastructure.
Thanks in advance,

Brad Hansen

I've never owned any model of the Terrible Fire cards nor studied them.....  Do any of them have an on-board clockport? Home free if so. I thought there was already a way to add a clockport to a CD32 - I could be totally mistaken on that.

You can plug an 8266 wifi module into the ESP port on the TF330.  You'll need to solder and 8 pin socket to the TF330 first.  Anyone reasonably proficient at soldering should be able to do this.  The 8266 wifi module can cost as little as a few pounds so it's a very inexpensive upgrade.

I found an archive with the complete setup to get it up and running.
