First thing, now that you put in the address and the netmask, please remove the line that reads "configure=dhcp", since it is not helpful in this context. If you leave it in, Roadshow will still run the DHCP protocol, and tell the DHCP server that it wants to use the address you specified. The server may refuse to do that, complicating matters further. In your case, it appears that the DHCP protocol is not working.cevoner wrote:cevoner wrote:Hi,
configured as dhcp now.
Now I get cannot use unit 0 It is busy. What is it busy with? It says device is OK but busy. Tried unit 1 same result. The debug makes multiple tries and times out. Can't seem to connect. Used original Prism2 and edited a couple of times. What is filter?
It also says "Input/output error" after quitting.
When I try the plain Prism2 file, It tries to connect but finally times out. The above busy error is when I put address and netmask in. What is your other ideas?
The next thing is to move the "Prism2" configuration file from "DEVS:NetInterfaces" to "SYS:Storage/NetInterfaces". The reason is this: you still have to use Wirelessmanager in order to make your WiFi card become part of the wireless network, and only after that has been done can you tell Roadshow to use it through the "AddNetInterface Prism2" command. If you leave the configuration file in "DEVS:NetInterfaces", then Roadshow will try to use the "Prism2" file when you reboot your Amiga, without Wirelessmanager having been run. This is pratically guaranteed not to work out well
When you have moved the "Prism2" file, make sure you know which IP address your router uses. Let's say it is "192.168.1.1" (is that correct?). Edit the "DEVS:Internet/routes" file, so that the last line reads "default 192.168.1.1" and make sure that there is no other line in that file which begins with "default". Note that this assumes that your router will allow your Amiga to access the Internet through this address.
Finally, if you want to access web sites, etc. in the Internet, then you will need to set up DNS name resolution. It's usually the case that your home router will both convey data to/from the Internet as well as relay DNS name resolution services. Let's say your router can do that. Then you should edit the file "DEVS:Internet/name_resolution" and add the line "nameserver 192.168.1.1" to it (make sure that there is no other line in that file which starts with "nameserver").
Now reboot your Amiga. When ready, start Wirelessmanager to make your Amiga part of the wireless network, and once that is the case, start Roadshow with "AddNetInterface Prism2". By this point you should have a usable local network (if the address and netmask data is correct which you entered into the "SYS:Storage/NetInterfaces/Prism2" file, and the router address is correct, too).
Try something: enter "ping 192.168.1.1" and watch if you can get your router to respond to it. If it works out, try something else by entering "ping www.google.com". This tests both the DNS name resolution (figuring out which IP address "www.google.com" responds to) and if the packets sent to it will reach the Google servers.
