I'v upgraded to Core 2.9 and the latest saga drivers. I followed the document on how to connect the ethernet module to the expansion port but now i dont know how to setup roadshow or AmiTCP to use the new ethernet adapter. Can someone link me to any instructions/documents

I use Roadshow. It is easy to setup. I will make an instructional video for YouTube and post it by mid day tomorrow if you like.

That would be great...Thank you. I'm running coffin R49 and it already has roadshow demo version installed so it should be simple. But to be honest I have never had ethernet on my Amiga 500 so I'm clueless. I did try to setup a plipbox but was getting errors...figured it was bad but I know this expansion port is good because I have no problems with my Vampire :D

Finally uploaded :)

The video quality is not ideal but it is usable. Definitely need to invest in a HD Capture device (using a point-and-shoot camera for video is not the best).

Thanks for the great video. I see a problem...my ethernet module light is red not green and I dont see the driver v2expeth.device. I reinstalled saga drivers but still not there. Where did you get that driver. I reinstalled roadshow-demo version 1.13 thinking it might be included wth roadshow but no luck? I must be doing something wrong...any suggestions?

The v2expeth.device is included in the SagaDriver.1.3.lha archive. It does not get installed by default.Unpack the archive and go to Devs/Networks. You will set it there.

It can be found here: http://www.apollo-accelerators.com/file ... r.v1.3.lha

The Apollo Vampire update site is here: http://wiki.apollo-accelerators.com/dok ... test_cores. You should visit this site often to check for updates.

The status light on mine is green. I see some pictures on the Net that show it red. Mine is green at all times even with no Ethernet cable connected or drivers installed. Still trying to find if the color of the status LED means anything other than the board is getting power. Perhaps they are single color LEDs that could be Green of Red when assembled?

Check your wiring and try the driver. Good Luck!

I'm posting this from my Amiga 500. This is my very first post on the internet from my childhood computer. This is very cool. I just needed to copy the v2exp driver from teh SAGA archive and I was surfing. Thanks for all your help :-)

Awesome news. It is a very satisfying (and cool) feeling to get the Amiga online, especially with the Vampire. It's like Afterburners for your 500/600 :)
