    Wifi Extension Development Thread

    @Michael_b, is the new file the @ants sent you working with your SE? If so, I might install it as well.

    Wifi Extension Development Thread

    I will try to test the extension with the thread manager this weekend. The stupid serial transfer keeps messing up and is deleting the last 100 bytes I may just have to use my Kryoflux Card. Also @Michael_b, did you configure your network properly? You have to go inside the network control panel and select your card/device, then you go into MacTCP and set your static IP address within the router’s range. The other important part is to set your DNS name to “.” And the address to the router’s gateway. One other thing, can you get any internet access, or is it just the extension that isn’t working? I am able to get WiFi at the moment, but I need to finish installing the thread manager to get the app to fully work. @ants Don’t you also have to use the authentication info for setting up the json-rpc? That could also be one of the issues @Michael_b is experiencing. I guess the logs (if they show up) should solve this problem.

    Thanks for the update I will try this as soon as I can on my SE. I will let you know what the results are

    Actually, Is it possible to use NCSA Telnet to connect to a BBS using only ethernet and an internet connection?

    Wifi Extension Development Thread

    @Michael_b That seems to be a feature of many modern OS's and might apply to old ones too, but when connecting my Macintosh to a BBS, I currently have to: 1.) Connect a serial cable to my modern PC and the Mac 2.) Run TCPser on the modern computer to a select port # and speed. This makes it emulate a Hayes Modem (Bridging the PC's Wifi and the Macintosh) 3.) Open up a terminal emulator like Kermit to the mentioned speed and Serial port. 4.) Open up the terminal's command window and use the dial command (followed by the BBS and port number) 5.) You are connected to a BBS..............Hopefully I haven't tried many other ways to accomplish a connection, but if the OpenWRT device can replicate this process (acting as the modern PC as mentioned above) using Ethernet cables instead of Serial cables, that would be quite cool. If there is an easier way to do this, then please let me know. That's why I was talking about TCPser earlier. TCPser only runs on Windows with a Linux-emulating DLL, but it can run natively on OpenWRT as a package/program (OpenWRT is really a Linux System). Having the ability to toggle the TCPser program and settings at ease with OpenWRT could make telnet much more portable and compact. Also, when you were talking about direct telnet access from a computer with internet, I think that is only the case with newer commands like SSH, not dial (you could technically add support for this in the extension, but some BBS's may not support SSH connections (I could be wrong here too)). Telnet with classic dialing will need a real modem or a router which emulates the modem.

    What I meant by "telnet support" is that I want to be able to connect to a BBS without using serial cables and use WiFi instead. If it doesn't exist already, I was hoping that the extension could forward the commands given by the terminal emulator and transmit data (with the router acting as a modem for this setup)

    Wifi Extension Development Thread

    Actually @ants, when the SE problem is fixed, is it possible to add telnet support? If this is already a thing (a quick Google search brings up the WiFi Modem product) please let me know. Since the RS-232 WiFi Modem connects to Routers, it should be possible for an OpenWRT device to support telnet and Hayes AT commands (Since the router is really a bridge). Edit: TCPSer evidently works with OpenWRT (can be installed as a package).

    Thanks for the reply. I can also second on telnet servers being a better option. MacKermit seems to do a decent job at this (no ANSI Emulation though ). I might be able to use WiFi to connect to a BBS instead of a constant serial connection. I am sure I can find a way around this

    Actually @Michael_b, which browser will you/are you using for your Macintosh SE? NCSA Mosaic looks like an better option than MacWeb (due to HTTP protocol support). If you know of one that will work better, please let me know.

    That makes more sense now, I will probably switch to a different browser for the Mac. As for MacTCP, I hope support is added soon (if you add it, please add support for 2.06 or later).

    Wifi Extension Development Thread

    I’ve had this exact problem with my Macintosh SE and System 7.1 no logs, no WiFi. I have at least gotten some internet access (Google and YouTube). But not access to .org sites and no WiFi settings coming up. I can verify that MacTCP does work though. I have given up for the most part. Unless someone can figure this out, no walking into Starbucks with a Macintosh with WiFi
  12. I have recently bought an OpenWRT router and a Farallon Ethermac for my Mac SE. I then used this method to connect it to the internet: So far, I have been able to get internet access to websites such as google.com and youtube.com, but am unable to access websites such as ccadams.org and wikipedia.org. I tried deleting my preferences files for my browser, but it didn't change the situation. It would be nice to have access to these domains so I can browse older websites. In addition, I tested the router I was using to connect to the internet on my modern PC, and it worked great (The speed settings and such were correct). If you can help me I would be so thankful. My Mac's specs are below: Computer: Macintosh SE (not SE/30), no accelerator, 4mb of RAM, 20mb SCSI HDD Networking Hardware: Farallon Ethermac Mac/PB Adapter, GL-AR300M Mini Smart Router (OpenWrt 18.06.1 r7258-5eb055306f) Software: System 7.1, MacTCP 2.06, Farallon Adapter Drivers (version 2.2.2), Tradewave MacWeb 2.0 (with 2.0c patch), Internet Config 1.4

    That could be possible, but why can it access sites like google.com and YouTube.com that have advanced graphics, but can’t access simpler sites like Wikipedia and ccadams.org? Also, the error that shows up is error 400. Would deleting the cached files or preferences fix this issue? As for the http version, I read somewhere that MacWeb 2.0c could cope with modern websites.

    Okay, so I was finaaaallyy able to access websites like google.com and youtube.com, but cannot access websites like http://www.ccadams.org/se or other simple html websites. I am currently using MacWeb 2.0c Patched. Unfortunately, the Wifi Extension is still not working. It keeps saying Scanning for Networks... and doesn't change. I really want to be able to use websites with basic html and have the extension working. Hopefully this money was not a waste

    I take back what I said earlier about the static addresses. I finally figured out that in addition to the IP, gateway, and the subnet mask, I needed to set the DNS address for it to actually connect. I set this value to the router’s gateway, which seems to work when connecting to the internet. Next, I will try setting MacTCP setting to the ones on my modern computer (I originally thought the extension automatically set this up, I now know it only configures the WiFi network on the router). After that, I hope this works Also, I like how when connecting to different networks, all that is needed is to switch the WiFi connection, no static IP Change!!!
