Wifi bridge for OS/2 machines
« on: May 29, 2018, 07:55:00 pm »
I just realized using a raspberry pi for a cheap wifi bridge would be a good solution for any OS/2 machines that don't have the luxury of having GenMAC or whatever:

Just an idea. But then really, you could use it for a lot more devices too.

Hi Devon

I use the Vonets (china) VAP11G and the VAP11N. The USB port is just for power is not an USB device. Both works but I don't recommend VAP11G because you need a Windows software to configure it. The VAP11N can be configured with the browser.

Regards
