Yes, I did look therer. I was just wandering what success different people have had with different cards. Thanks for the information.

Re: Wifi Cars and eCS? (from tomleem, 13:40:20)
I will check it out. Thanks for the information.

Re: Wifi Cars and eCS? (from TomLeeM, 20:12:00)
I used the list at http://www.os2warp.be as a reference in searching http://www.ebay.com to find a wif i card. I ordered two cards that were on the list. :)

One can download the drivers from the members section of http://www.ecomstation.com

wifi drivers (from BigWarpGuy, 13:26:24)
I Googled and this is the only site that came up. The date is 25-NOV-2005.

This one has a date of 11/06/2005.

Would the other one be newer (25-NOV-2005) or just seem newer if posted at a later date?

Re: wifi drivers (from Juergen Ulbts, 10:30:03)

I know the guy who developed the GenPrism driver.
He isn't working on the drivers any more (to much work and there are no cards you can buy that use that driver). So it's only the date when the driver have been posted on that site.

GenMac on the other side is activly developed.
There are newer versions of the driver available but not public version yet....

The latest testrelease of GenMac 1.7 I know is from the 7th April 2006 but there may be newer versions.

You might want to look here:

The Netlabs Newsletter has also some information about GenMac:

Re: wifi drivers (from BigWarpGuy, 14:42:23)
Thank you for the information. I wish I had read this before going to WarpStock Windsor Onatario (it was really great). I could not get the wifi card to be recognized by generic prism driver (which os2warp.be said would work with it). I am checking it with a Win pc to see if it is the card that is bad. I have an Intel Pro/Wireless LAN PCCard 2011b. :(

I tried the genmac but did not know which Intel version to use. I was told that genmac does not work with pccards(? - I am not sure on this).

It seemed everyone was using a wifi connection. Not all of the conference rooms had strong wifi signals (at the Warpstock Windsor).

They mentioned a wifi device that connects via the ethernet port and is powered by the USB port. I think of the devices was by D-Link. I will check for the other two.

I heard that there might be support for USB wifi devices for OS/2-eCS in the future. Since there are an increasing number of devices for the USB port, this would be the way to go (for wifi and other periphials).

Re: wifi drivers (from BigWarpGuy, 15:07:13)
I feel like such an idiot. I was using the downloaded version of the Intel Pro/wireless pc lan 2011b card and found OS/2 drives. I should have checked it first. :( I will give them a try (too late for this years Warpstock but hopefull get it working for next years).

Re: wifi drivers (from BigWarpGuy, 17:32:28)
I tried the OS/2 drivers on the cdrom but it seems that they are not for the pccard but for another device. I could not get it to work, yet. I will see if I can get one of the portable wireless routers that connect to the ethernet port and is powered by the usb port. They seem to work at WarpStock with other peoples notebook computers. I might get another notebook computer that has wireless/wifi built into it or get the right card for the T23.
