Hello! I recently got a WiFi232 serial modem for vintage computers from Paul Rickards at biorhythm.com, with the intent of setting up mock dial-up networking on DOS and Windows 98. All the videos and articles I've seen point to this installation being one of the easiest and quickest out there, but I'm having a good bit of trouble. Maybe I'm not thinking about the configuration correctly, but it would seem that my Dell Dimension 4100's LPT port is not recognized as a COM port - and thus, every terminal program I've tried so far has failed to recognize anything connected. Per the instructions, I set the baud rate to 1200, set the terminal to ANSI, and tried every port that each emulator had as an option - to no avail. In both DOS and Windows, everything expects a COM port; I even tried the built-in web server, but when I got my home WiFi SSID and password entered, the network for the Wifi232 disappeared and is now inaccessible. Frankly, I'm stumped. Anybody have any pointers? Thanks in advance.
