After getting my Amiga 1200 recapped (done by Retroservice in Norway), I decided to get it Online again. It is been quite a while since I’ve had Internet access on this one. 🙂
I went for the Plipbox, an Ethernet / Internet Network adapter, which you plug into the Parallel port on back of the Amiga 1200. The nice thing with this is that it keeps the PCMCIA-port open for various devices. 🙂
The adapter came with printed installation instructions and drivers on a floppy disk. Initially tried to use it with MiamiDX, but it failed to go Online. Tried Roadshow instead and it worked right away. 🙂
If you’re interested in purchasing a Plipbox, here is a link to the shop on eBay which sells them. They have different versions available:
Haven’t installed much software yet, since I’m doing a full install of Workbench 3.1.4 soon. Waiting for the ROM-chips to arrive in the mail. 😉 However, I had to try some FTP, IRC and browsing though, with some old tools, hehe.
It’s great to have the 1200 back Online, especially since one gets instant access to Aminet. 🙂
Anyone else having their Amiga connected to the Internet? If yes, what kind of device do you use? Guess most use PCMCIA network cards?
Thanks for reading and have a great day!
