I wanted to share a success story - the ADAM paired with Jim Drew's WiModem232.
Of course a lot of C64 users know Jim for the WiModem, which allows the computer to access the Internet over WiFi in order to telnet to the various BBSes that are accessible that way.
Several weeks ago I learned that Jim was designing an RS-232 compatible version of his WiModem. Thanks to Micro Innovations' MIB2 Parallel/Serial Interface card, I was ready to see if I could take the ADAM "on-line" and access the growing world of telnet-accessible BBSes. I was already using the MIB2 for dial-up modem access (via a Hayes 9600 baud modem), and was hopeful I could use it for the WiModem232.
I ordered a WiModem232 shortly after they want on sale around Christmas, and it arrived yesterday. The version I chose came with an OLED. Jim was confident that it would work with any computer with an RS-232, and his confidence wasn't misplaced. Following the instructions in the manual, set-up was a breeze and I was using the ADAM for BBS glory in no time. The unit is powered by a USB-USB mini B cable and a smartphone wall adapter.
If you have a serial adapter, it might be time to join the BBS community again!
