    Wifi Extension Development Thread

    On the SE with System 7.1, no file generated... The .txt file is generated immediately on the iMac running 9.2.2, and it seems to write to it just fine there as it goes through the process of logging in. No such luck on the SE. Out of curiosity, since things are behaving weirdly here, is the processor of the computer at all relevant? It seems that it should not be, but I don't know if anyone has successfully gotten this working on anything other than an SE/30... I am certainly grasping at straws, and there is always a chance that something is not right on my end. Thanks for implementing logging to help figure this out. I can connect to the internet just fine on the SE as is, and the Wifi extension is working on an iMac running 9.2. Looking forward to seeing if you get better results than I do with thread manager.

    Thanks for looking into this! I've installed the thread manager extension into the system folder - unfortunately I still get the persistent "Searching for Networks" message. It's entirely possible that there's something weird with this install of 7.1 and the fault isn't with the Wifi Extension though, so I'm very curious if @10001001sos experiences the same problem. EDIT: If it's of any interest, no preferences file is generated at any point.

    I’m no expert but I believe so. I can connect to rainmaker.wunderground.com (wunderground’s telnet server) using only an Ethernet connection through a terminal emulator on the Mac.

    Perhaps I’m mistaken, but can’t you telnet into those BBSs as-is on any internet connected computer?

    What exactly do you mean by telnet support? OpenWRT devices no longer act as telnet servers due to security concerns. It should be possible to connect to the openwrt device over ssh, however. regardless, I’ve just been using a terminal emulator on the SE to connect to servers. I’m not familiar with TCPser but it looks like it hasn’t been a part of OpenWRT for a few years. You’d need to compile it yourself.

    Great to hear it's reproducible on your end! If I do end up trying browsers, I'll probably be looking at the ones listed on this page (you'll need to scroll down a bit)... I don't think Web browsing is really happening on the SE though - 68000 and 4MB is too much a limitation (and I have the original 20MB hard disk to contend with...). I expect that on the SE/30 it will be exciting for about 10 minutes - then just too slow continue messing around with. I think telnet servers are a more realistic use of these computers.

    It's really not a big deal if you don't have the time to spend at it - would be very cool if you could help get it working but I'm pretty happy with a functioning Wireless connection to this Mac as is. Might try and get it to communicate with the OpenWRT device via an SSL terminal and be able to change networks that way as well. Interesting re: MacTCP vs Open Transport. I would give Open Transport a shot, but it seems to require a 68030 processor. I'll try and scrounge together a working SE/30 setup - I would be able to test MacTCP and Open Transport and see if there's any difference in functionality.

    Also, trying to get stunnel set up correct for Spotify - my /etc/init.d/stunnel seems very different from what it should be, according to the GitHub instructions (copied below): vim /etc/init.d/stunnel Line 96: Change from: printf "accept = %s:%s\n" "$accept_host" "$accept_port" >> "$CONF_FILE" to: printf "accept = %s\n" "$accept_port" >> "$CONF_FILE" Line 134: Remove this line: print_list_colon "$cfg" ciphers I've attached the file that came with my stunnel install, as you can see, it looks very different from yours. Has there been some sort of update since the readme was written? According to opkg list-installed I have stunnel version 5.54-1. stunnel.txt

    Hey @ants, I've been messing around with this great extension. I have an OpenWRT device all set up, and I can connect to the internet using your extension just fine on an iMac G3 running 9.2.1 using it. I'm trying to get the same functionality on my SE running System 7.1. I've put the extension in the extensions folder, and I see that it loads at startup. The WiFi icon is in the menubar, and it says scanning for networks. It never gets past that point. There is no preferences file that is generated, so I can't delete that and restart to try and clear things up. I did try copying over the preferences file from the iMac G3 after setting everything up to see if that would trigger things to work, and it did not. So, I'm wondering if there is some incompatibility with System 7.1 and this extension? I can connect to the internet just fine using MacTCP - using a telnet client that someone left on the machine I've connect to Weather Underground - but I'd love to get your extension working for the full WiFi effect!

    Mac SE - checkerboard and repeated chimes

    After taking a hairdryer to the board to troubleshoot, the board worked fine, and has continued to do so since.

    ASANTE MacCon+ TK/TP problem

    As dochili said, this could be an issue with a new network device not seeing the Mac properly... ants had a same blinking green light - the culprit was that the card was unable to auto negotiate, so setting the device he was using to connect to 10 mbps half duplex manually allowed him to connect

    Just took a hair dryer to the board, after heat, it starts right up! so, the ROMs are a likely culprit? Anything else that I should look over?

    Interesting, I’ll give this a go.. sure seems like this problem could be really difficult to track down. Might start out with hair drying the board to see if it starts right up after that.
