Hi there,
when will be Drivers released for the V500 V2+ for the Wifi module?
@Tuko: How did you go online with the V500 V2+? Could you tell us how to configure the OS?
Thanks in advance. :twisted:

Hi Winwood !

We are still looking for someone able to write us a quick SANA-II driver for the ESP8266. It shouldn't be a big job but it requires someone's time. As of today, I can't answer your question on "when" because work on this part hasn't started.

I went online with V500+ with a Plipbox connected on Parallel port. It's actually the easiest way to get online on A500(+). I did it with the Roadshow stack. It was really straight forward. I have to admit it still isn't the best solution as the Plipbox is really slow (40KB/s... versus the 2MB/s we got on A600 with PCMCIA Ethernet and it is a bit unstable...).

Software part for Plipbox :

Where to buy Plipbox "plug'n'play" :

Best Regards

What is the speed likely to be from one of these adapters versus the A600 PCMCIA?

Thanks for answering. You can maybe leave a post at the A1k.org Amiga Forum. It's the most famous Amiga Forum in Germany and there are some talented People, who can help out for sure.
You can do it also in English...
:idea:

I've been very reluctant to purchase any ethernet solution for my A500 after learning of the v2+ expansion for a wifi module. Curious to know the progress and what exact module should I be looking to buy once a driver is ready. Is the ESP8266 what I should get? I really don't want to get a PlipBox only to replace it later. I've received my Vampire A500 v2+ yesterday but haven't installed it just yet because of time.

EDIT: will this work? https://www.amazon.com/DIYmall-ESP8266- ... ds=esp8266

You can join irc and ask around there (When the guys in UK are awake) - may want to talk to @FREEMILK and see if there are WiFi boards available. I'm on a waiting list for one.
