    Default User Guide to Getting your A1200 on a wireless network

    User Guide to Getting your A1200 on a wireless network.

    1. The best advice I can give is to buy EasyNet from Amigakit for £11.00 including delivery.

    2. Ensure you have a compatible Prism2 network card, i.e. Netgear 401.

    3. Before you start, ensure you have your routerís IP address, your subnet address, and give your Amiga an IP address slightly higher than your routerís IP (helpful hint: your SSID is usually your routerís name. You can find this by entering your router IP in your PC browser).

    4. Go to Aminet and download the Prism2 drivers.

    5. Boot up your A1200 and install the Prism2 drivers.

    6. Plug in your network card.

    7. Install EasyNet and literally follow the on-screen prompts.

    8. Ensure that your user-startup has the line :

    C:SetPrism2Defaults SSID _your SSID_ KEY _Your WEP Key

    (double check this as this is the part that caught me out!)

    These are the steps I followed to get online with my A1200. I hope this little guide saves you some of the heartache and grief I suffered!

    All the best

    Freaky!
    Just this evening I have been fiddling with setting up my wireless on my 1200, using identical steps (and hardware) that you mention.
    My card is a Netgear 401, My EasyNet CD arrived this morning and everything is as you have set up.

    The only difference is mine doesn't work! Bah.

    When I click to connect I get an error message insisting that I must have AmiTCPIP version 3 or later installed.
    I have, it's a bit frustrating.
    Off to do it some damage.

    yeah i had that as well, turned out to be an incorrect ip address config, are you sure you have your routers ip?

    Off to check, the IP address' are good, I'm thinking maybe an incorrect WEP entry.

    and you put the WEP number in your user-startup?
    P.S aren't you Zetr0's m8?

    Does anyone have a list of all compatible wireless cards for the A1200?

    @ JuvUK

    Would you mind me using your quick guide on the new classicamiga Wiki as the basis for a guide on how to setup a wireless network on the A1200? I would obviously give you a credit with a link back from the page to this topic.
    Coming soon - ..

    (7) = AmigaOS: Card-Reset or equivalent required; some cards need a reset time up to 3 seconds - Linux: 100 MBit patches for the linux kernels introduce a card reset every time the kernel module is loaded.
    ( = AmigaOS: problems with MAC address, currently there is only support for one device per network

    all this hard work was done by GMB

    in fact just go here http://www.g-mb.de/pcmcia_e.html
