I would prefer this, too. But since Sunrise isn't active anymore I don't know, if someone else could produce another batch.
You probably recognized this thread, too:

Yup, I'm following it and it looks promissing; however it is not clear to me whatever the ENC28J60-H has TCP/IP processing capabilities or it must be done by software in the Z80.

One could also contact Yobi or Dennis directly of course... they designed it.

@Edoz: Expanding the charset to the IBM PC one is still on the todo list Smile
@Karloch: Don't they use an additional microcontroller?

Very excellent Wink

Edoz; where (if I can) try the latest Unify version ? I would like to play around with it again now that I have some more time.

(Or was it Trebmint to ask; I am not sure now...)

Sorry .. i totaly forgot this question..
Yes of course .. but it is still in beta.. could you send me a e-mail ? As my folder is a bit big i need to upload it somewhere.

Gillian answered me that it doesn't have hardware TCP/IP stack. That makes the W5100 more attractive IMHO. Anyway, it's quite good to see other ethernet projects around.

Hello, how about Obsonet2 ethernet card support under SymbOs?

It's "only" a question regarding the driver and when there is time for writing it. A driver for Obsonet of course will be more complex, but applications themself won't see any differences, they only speak with the Network Daemon without knowing what hardware is used.

Konamiman already has a driver and TCP/IP stack for the ObsoNet. You could ask him for the sources, as this could speed up a lot the support for this card.

Note: The Tecnobytes ObsoNet2.1 has support for interrupts. The original ObsoNet1 & ObsoNet2 only supported pooling.

Today we managed to get the ESP8266 Wlan module up and running for the Amstrad CPC on the Revision 2015 Demo party. Again we used Karlochs HispaMSX BBS for the testing as usual :RNFF:

This is an alternative to the W5100 and it has even more intelligence. The downside is, that it is connected via RS232, so you you need additional hardware for this, and it requires polling for each byte when receicing data, which slows down the transfer speed. I wonder if this could be an option for the MSX, too, if there is no other batch for Denyonet.

@SD-Snatcher: Polling is fine for me. Another advantage is, that Obsonet is supported by BlueMSX, which makes development much easier...

So nice to see the BBS from a CPC 6128 Smile Indeed, being connected by RS232 is a downside, as no more interfaces are available now (Sunrise was producing the last ones in the ATA+RS232 combi IIRC). I think the RS232 and the WLAN module could be easily integrated in the same cartridge, but whatever a new ethernet (wireless or wired) hardware is developed, it should be compatible with the UNIAPI specification so Konamiman's INL can be used out of the box.
