Hello!

I have a Panasonic MSX2 FS-A1 and love playing games, but want to connect to BBSs as I do with many of my other retro machines. I'd prefer to use my Wifimodem so have been looking for an rs232 cartridge for sale -- used or new. Does anyone know where I can buy one? I would really appreciate it. Thanks!

An ethernet card would work, too, but the prices seem very high on those. At least the ones I've seen (around $200).

You could buy a GR8NET. It's ok to connect to a bbs/telnet server.
Contact Eugeny Brychkov (here or via facebook). It will be a little cheaper.

Perhaps you can get this:

Assuming it is still available.

Thanks for the reply -- yes, I sent him a request. It will be well over 200 after shipping. I'll go that route if I can't find a simple rs232 cart.

I'd love to get that one, but can't find anyone selling it.
