View Full Version : Amiga 4000 wireless connection?
05-27-2009, 10:02 PM
What would be the best way to install a wireless network card into an Amiga 4000?
I know that its easier and cheaper with the A1200 as a PCMCIA card can be used. Is there anything similiar for the A4000 that fits into the ZORRO slots?

A prism2 PCI card plugged into a Prometheus might work. Easier option is probably to attach a wireless bridge to the end of a traditional wired network card.
There are a few older threads on this matter that may offer more insight.

A Deneb USB card and almost any USB wireless adapter. The advantages being the USB card would be useful for other things such as hard drives, USB keys etc.
A Zorro ethernet card such as an X-Surf, Ariadne, A2065 and a wireless bridge such as the linksys WGA54G might be cheaper.
If it is just about getting static data from a PC to an A4000 then the cheapest way would be to use a IDE->CF adapter (http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=230344416295) and a CF card and "walk" the data over.

Are you sure about the usb to wireless adapter?
I have mine set up with a usb to lan converter plugged in to a wireless access point...
If you're right I could have saved some cash! :)
