MP 2000 wifi

Recommended Posts

Finally got my MP 2000 online using a Lucent WaveLAN silver card. 3 hours it took me to work out the settings! Kudos to the Japanese guy for writing the drivers.

I've a Lucent Wavelan Gold but the driver installed doesn't work. I assume I need to find the Newton Internet kit, but am having difficulty working out where it can be found?

 

Thanks

Congrats. I've got wifi on my eMate. I agree that the drivers are a major accomplishment. I just wish NIE was a bit better. I've never liked it much.

I wish that the driver was totally free and WEP worked no matter. Also, that little slip that comes up every time I soft reset telling me to register gets annoying.

 

WPA would be nice, but I don't see it happening. They got it on the airport card, which is a special lucent wavelan.

I've just installed it. No registering reminder and no WEP problems. Maybe it's been opened up with the latest download?

My 20 meg storage card turned up today, works like a charm. Now I'm just waiting for the bluetooth card [:D]]'>

OK, make sure you've downloaded the relevant drivers:

Set your base station to WEP or unencrypted.

go into Owner info and set up a new worksite and add all your details, wifi setup etc in there. Then when you use Newtscape (or whatever) to surf, connect using that worksites info.

It can take a while to fine tune so be patient.

Not sure if anyone is still monitoring this thread, but wondering if anyone can explain the -60088 error I'm getting with a Lucent Wavelan IEEE Silver and both my MP2100 and eMate. I have Eero mesh wifi at home and have also tried the hotspot on my iPhone. It seems to hang on 'getting DHCP configuration' before the error message pops up.
