Looking for driver for Intel 5100 8086:4232
« on: April 09, 2019, 04:26:06 pm »
Hey all, as the title states, I currently have an Intel 5100 8086:4232 card that is compatible but I've failed to locate the necessary GenMU driver (save for OS2Voice which I do not have credentials to) to go with it. Is there any location that might have this driver available?

Many thanks.

Hi, welcome to the forum.

Can you try the OS2VOICE server again?

Try with this credentials (that was publically available):
ftp://genmac:unsupported@ftp.os2voice.org/

Remember that sometimes, even if the card has the same ID (8086:4232) sometimes differences on the firmware can produce incompatible. Good luck and please report back !!!

Regards

Hi Ibrahim

The driver you need is in this package ftp://genmac@ftp.os2voice.org/GenMU_INTEL_WIFI-0-4-9.wpi

However, looking at the W8086x4232.nif file I see you will need to make some changes as the W8086x4232.nif file references the older driver files NETW4X32.SYS and NETW4X32.REG but supplies the later driver files NETW5X32.SYS and NETW5X32.REG.

So, you will need to change both mentions of NETW4X32 to NETW5X32 in the W8086x4232.nif file.

Also, looking at the  patch.dat file included it is different to the patch.dat file I have for my Intel 5100 8086:4232 using the NETW5X32 drive files so the patch data is probably for the NETW4X32 drivers.

I have attached the patch.dat file that I know works.

Hopefully Doug, who usually takes care of the genmac driver file packages, will read this and double check the package.


Regards

Pete

I'm glad to report total success! After the wrangling with file names and references, everything runs crisp!
This marks my first 100% functional OS/2 Warp install on any system.

Hi Eugene

Martins url - ftp://genmac:unsupported@ftp.os2voice.org/ - works for me.

Might be worth trying again - maybe the server had a glitch.

It was clear.

Without having tested that: Apparently your FTP client doesn't support the userid:password@ syntax. Just try the URL without it and type it in when the server requests them.

Eugene, this is something you can try if you use FM/2 file manager.  FM/2 uses the default OS/2 association. There could be a problem with how wpi's are associated in you operating system. In FM/2, you can change its default association to point the wpi file directly to the warpin exe file instead of relying on the system default association.  I normally start my wpi file from either FF download or from FM/2.  I am assuming FireFox uses the system default association which does you no good.

I thank you very much for that nugget.

There is a program that can unpack, install, and view config wpi files.  You just copy it to your warpin directory and make a program object.  It is found on Hobbes at

http://hobbes.nmsu.edu/download/pub/os2/util/archiver/wpiview105.zip

There is a later version at

ftp://ftp.netlabs.org/pub/vxapps/wpiview/wpiview110.wpi

The exe, the help, and the dll were updated.

There was a later test build of the exe that I found that I like better that I have.  It is a month later than the 110 build.  Just copy the exe to you Warpin directory.  It cannot be found on Hobbes.  I believe the wpiview.exe is build 112.

If you don't have the latest Warpin, it can be found here
