Today I received my Netgear Universal WiFi Internet Adapter (WNCE2001). My idea was to create a wireless connection with this device. And my idea appeared to be 100% correct, I tested it today and; IT WORKS! Now I can use GR8NET on a MVM clubmeeting, by connection through a hotspot from my iPhone (the WiFi will connect to the Netgear and it catches the internet signal and passes it through to GR8NET using a UTP cable). A milestone for the MSX future again! Cool Cool

Me too I had this idea! It's useful when you expose stuff in computer meetings.
Happy to know it works on field, ready to purchase Tongue

The last thing to test is the connection to internet with a router that supports internet keys or sims.

What about next Saturday? Well next Saturday I will be rocking, drinking beer, crowdsurfing, headbanging, slamdancing at Anthrax, Sacred Reich and Life of Agony at the Dynamo Metal Festival in Eindhoven. - This Saturday I will demonstrate the above configuration at the MVM clubmeeting in Mariënberg.

Inspired by ray2day, I connected my MSX to my WiFi network using a TP-LINK TL-WR703N Mini Wireless Router flashed with OpenWRT.

I've used these settings:

I've added a WWAN network, that connects to my WiFi (or the hotspot on my phone)

Put the network in the WAN network zone. (making this a reverse router. WAN is Wifi, Ethernet is LAN)

Bridge Interface with WiFi:

My setup:

Result : Connected to the Internet B-)

I think this is a nice small solution to connect GR8NET to GR8WiFi :hannibal:

Asus WL330N also works well with GR8NET. Size is also quite compact. https://www.asus.com/Networking/WL330N/

I use wireless bridge to access network. I have my own home network with dhcp and bind9 servers.
