I think I will do this with my 1030 instead of trying to fit and SX212 or other faster modem in it. This is the wi-fi solution, correct?
Do you have schematics to share so I don't have to start from scratch? I like how you kept part of the 1030 board for the SIO/Power and the front PSU swtich and LED's. That was what I was planning on doing when I was going to make it into and SIO2PC & SIO2SD solution, but chose installing my SIO2PC in my 1050 and have an SDrive Max instead now too, so now I want to keep it a "modem."
Check this thread. Post #165 some pictures of 1030 modem used along with the esp8266... post #209 there is schematic. Post #273 shows a way to turn on the Carrier Detect LED of the 1030 modem when connected to a BBS (this is obviously optional, just something to recreate better the full experience).
Post #286 another take on the circuit (same circuit, we called it half Rverter since it does not have the max232 level shifter and other signals as the original rverter has).
In post #374 Dropcheck posted a nice PDF with initial instructions.and post #397 another one with the actual connection to the Atari.
I also highly recommend the mr-atari site where he covers same topic and provides a great utility to decrease the default baud rate of the esp8266 to something that Atari terminal programs can manage.
