I put a normal header on it since I haven’t gotten the ESP-01S working on it... yet!
Would prefer the 01S over the breakout board I’m testing now due to the pin compability.
Need to figure out why the firmware is incompatible.

Simple AmigaDOS script to set everything up for you. You need to have installed roadshow (maybe also with roadshow demo?) and downloaded http://aminet.net/package/comm/net/cslip-sana2.lha into the same folder as the script... see the zip attached.

Caveat is that it wipes your current settings clean and uses 8.8.8.8 for DNS resolution. You can update that if needed.

Code: Select all

; (C) 2020 Stephen J. Leary  
;
echo "Removing old slip.device"
IF EXISTS DEVS:Networks/slip.device
	delete DEVS:Networks/slip.device
EndIf

echo "Installing slip.device"
lha -q x cslip-sana2.lha ram:
copy QUIET ram:slip/slip.device DEVS:Networks/

IF NOT EXISTS ENVARC:Sana2
	echo "Creating SANA2 Config folder"
	MAKEDIR ENVARC:Sana2
ENDIF 

echo "Creating slip0.config" 
echo >envarc:Sana2/slip0.config "# Auto generated file" 
echo >>envarc:Sana2/slip0.config "serial.device 0 38400 192.168.240.2"

echo "Create network interface"
echo >devs:NetInterfaces/Slip "# $VER: SLIP 1.1 (1.4.2020)"
echo >>Devs:NetInterfaces/Slip "interface=Slip"
echo >>devs:NetInterfaces/Slip "device=slip.device"
echo >>devs:NetInterfaces/Slip "unit=0"
echo >>devs:NetInterfaces/Slip "address=192.168.240.2"
echo >>devs:NetInterfaces/Slip "netmask=255.255.255.0"
echo >>devs:NetInterfaces/Slip "requiresinitdelay=no"

echo "Create routes file"
echo >Devs:Internet/Routes default 192.168.240.1


echo "Create name_resolution file"
echo >Devs:Internet/name_resolution nameserver 8.8.8.8

literally unzip the zip file and type "Execute install_script" at a cli.

What wifi device/hardware are you using on the TF330?

And what are you using at the other end (that the wifi device connects to), is it a linux box?

Cheers.

Its a simple ESP8266 module... it connects to my wifi directly. One of those...



The TF330 has the exact pinout for this modue.

You could use them back to back though from a PC if you dont have a wifi network but the whole point of this port is to give the CD32 wifi.
