I'm looking forward to seeing your results.  I'm not aware of anyone ever being able to get Telco to work with a Nano-PEB.  I know I never was, and I had three different ones to try it with.  Good luck.


I am sorry if I was not clear, I am using a stock TI Peripheral Expansion Box not a Nano-PEB.  Thank you and I am having so much fun playing around with and troubleshooting RS-232 terminal communications again.  It has been a while!

Good afternoon everyone!  I am requesting your input once again as I need to tap into your wisdom and experience of all things TI-99 related.

Goal: I would like to utilize my PEB’s TI RS-232 board and WiModem 232 OLED to connect to Heatwave, FuSiON, 9640news, and other TI-99 BBS’s (Preferably with ANSI graphics). 

I would also like to have 80 column mode but do not have an F18A yet (Looking for one to become available).

I have:

  1. PEB w/Flexcable Interface, TI Disk Controller, TI RS-232 Interface (DB25F), TI 32Kx8 Memory Expansion Board and PHP 1250 5.25” Full Height SS/DD Floppy Drive.
  2. WiModem 232 OLED (DB25F)
  3. Gender Changer Adapter (DB25M to DB25M)
  4. Break Out Box (DB25F to DB25M)
  5. FinalGROM 99 Cartridge
  6. Terminal Emulator II Cartridge

Current Connection: TI RS-232 (DB25F) – (DB25M to DB25M) Gender Changer – (DB25F to DB25M) Break Out Box (Wired – 1-1, 2-3, 3-2,7-7,6-20,20-6) – (DB25F) WiModem 232 OLED (Connected to WoodlandNET Home WiFi).

Using TEII Cartridge – Selecting 300 baud, Even Parity, Full Duplex, Port #1, 40 Columns

Current Issue: Screen displays: Looking for router…, Connected to WoodlandNET, Filesystem Ready! (Looping).  It will not accept any AT commands (+++, ATH etc.)

What am I doing wrong?  What is the best setup for what I want to accomplish?

Thank you in advance for your time and input.







One thing I noticed after posting this and setting back down to troubleshoot some more is something that should have been obvious to me.  If you look at my breakout box configuration settings from the picture, after trying a straight-thru 2-2,3-3 configuration that did not work,  I tested 2-3, 3-2 by adding jumpers... BUT I forgot to turn off the bank switches!!! So it makes total sense now why I was getting the loop.  I had configured 2-2&3, and 3-3&2.  DOH!

On 8K terminal Emulator cartridge programs, I believe Link (from Asgard) fit that description. . .

I've got that in my EPROM files.
