Confronted with having to build separate versions of Internestor Lite for both Obsonet and Dumas, Konamiman started working on a way to keep the BIOS of both cards to be compatible.

The result is a proposal that describes a standard generic procedure for defining APIs for new hardware on MSX. The initial version of the proposal was published and announced a week ago. Just now, a new version was published over here. You can discuss this Universal API for MSX proposal right here in our active MSX Forum.

Eek! Its nice to read the word DUMAS.

How much different is the new chipset?

Its not ne2000 compilant?

Could be this: "for example "WIFI_IEEE802.3" " a clue?

Do you want Wifi in you MSX?
You should can connect your obsonet ( or dumas in the future ) on a Acces point in client mode!
Wifi cartridge is not necessary.

I like to have less cables, not more hardware

I dont have any problem with distance to the router, and now i have the obsonet connected with cable. Wink

Rs232 can be connected to a serial/Bluetooh dongle.
