---------------------
you need a chatboard
included : ping, client ftp, telnet, irc et msn messenger
everything is in text mode
you can play online rpg/mud with telnet


for now the default dns is 192.168.0.1 [ included in initrd ]
---------------------

you have to copy the pack on your smc [ gpdrive or card reader]
run boot.fxe
once linux started, and arrived at the console
type
cd /mnt/gpmm/linux
./wifi
you have to modify the line ./wlanctl wlan0 lnxreq_autojoin ssid="MyLAN" authtype=opensystem
and replace "MyLAN" by your ssid

after that you must wait, i can take some time according to signal strenght, and other parameters [mostly the first time ]
you will see a message "link status connected" when it s ready and you are connected
then type
cd /net
and the name of the program you want to run
./ftp
./telnet
./ping
./gtmess
./netwalker

gmtess is the msn client
and netwalker the irc client
-------------------------------------------------------
i modified gtmess source code for the chatboard
> to quit
< for the menu, with connect, ...

Really really nice stuff here :)

I happen to have a SMC 2862W-G Wifi USB adapter (worth 75 Euro, paid 14,5 E due to a labelling error (thanks FNAC))
Do you know it it would work with the packed driver?

Could someone also remind me what is needed to connect an USB device to my GP32 (cable/external power source ?)?

Thanks!

You're definitely going somewhere with this guys. Next I'd like to be able to use my cellphone's integrated modem with my GP32 through the serial port, please (nah just kidding, but do keep ip ut)

Cheers!

dont know for SMC 2862W-G Wifi USB adapter
you need a powered usb hub [ a good one ]

maybe we will have usb keyboard support someday
and a virtual keyboard driver ?

hope someone will test the pack
