  1. Latest firmware is: FujiNet Version: 0.5.ba2f6751 Version Date/Time: 2021-07-27 12:03:04 Build Date/Time: Mon Aug 16 01:45:57 UTC 2021 You can confirm the version above by running the flash tool serial monitor, hit reset on the FujiNet and the bootup messages will display the version number. Also, the web interface shows the firmware version number in the NETWORK Section. You could try doing a 'factory reset' by holding the B button, press RESET button and wait a few seconds before releasing B button. This wipes the FujiNet configuration. Another way is to remove the SD card, delete fnconfig.ini from it, flash latest firmware on FujiNet and try again.
  2. I (finally) tried them tonight and both boot loop
  3. I will test it when I have time. Here is a more reasonable antenna for me:
  4. And here it is, it works. Not really sure if the signal is any better as I see all the same networks with pcb antenna fujinet. How about this antenna?
  5. I'm sure it's possible to put a switch but that seems like a lot of work and I am not an RF engineer Pretty sure all the wiring must be shielded properly. maybe someone already makes a IPEX to switched SMA or PCB antenna. You could just get a small stubby SMA antenna instead of some huge thing. Took me about 30 minutes to extend the FujiNet case rear and add the SMA cutout to the 400/800 style case. Printing it now to see if it fits:
  6. @Kyle22 has requested a FujiNet with external antenna. Is there any other interest in such a thing? It would require a modified (bigger) case to house the antenna connector and an esp32 with ipex antenna connector. You loose the ability to use the internal antenna (unless you can solder a 0201 resistor when you want to switch back and forth).
  7. Awesome! When esp32 boards are back in stock I can make them for you, but as of now I have no plans to produce them. In person they are more difficult to eject than the push/pull socket. This could be discussed in hardware thread if you want to "change my mind". Like this? I made this as a joke a long time ago, it's not a real thing. A FujiNet with external antenna port could be made, but we've heard very few reports of wifi signal problems. Could be the same PCB but use the esp32 module with ipex connector and newly designed case to fit the external antenna connector. This can also be discussed more in another thread if you want.
  8. Yes, the new pins fit much better with the 3 different cables I have: JAE, Chelco and an unbranded one similar to the Chelco.
  9. I will be attending VCFMW 2021 September 11-12 and @tschak909 will be there as well. We don't have a table or presentation but will be around. I'll be the tall guy with long hair wearing a FujiNet T-Shirt, can't miss me With me will be some new hardware for showing off: Latest v1.6 FujiNet with better SIO receptacle pins v1.6 FujiNet with push/push Micro SD Card socket (failure IMO, "change my mind") SIO Breakout board v2.2 using FujiNet connectors I will be donating a v1.6 FujiNet + care package to the VCFMW Auction so bring your wallet Suburban Chicago ATarians group will be there and I suspect the new hardware end up at their table where it can actually be used Would be great to meet anyone who can attend, post here if you will be there!
  10. This is the latest SIO Breakout Board I've designed with FujiNet style connectors. I've posted in some other threads about it but figured I should put it here in it's own thread. The idea came originally during development of FujiNet when we needed to hookup a logic analyzer to watch the signals. After many suggestions and several versions later, this is what I've come up with. It uses 3D printed FujiNet style connectors and thus the board is on a vertical plane with a 3D printed case to hold it all together. There is a 13 pin 2.54mm header on the top for external connection to your equipment of choice. Optionally, there are pads for a Through Hole and/or SMD 0805 capacitor connected to the 5V power rail and ground. This design uses new longer / thicker receptacle pins which fit SIO plugs better than the currently available FujiNet hardware (these pins will be in the next FujiNet hardware release too). The board can be assembled in two ways: Plug and Receptacle: plug for connecting to any SIO receptacle and a receptacle for connecting your SIO cable Dual Receptacle: requires use of 2 SIO cables for pass through. Also doubles as a cable extender / coupler Assembled board rear side with capacitors. Left is Dual Receptacle with SMD cap, right is Plug & Receptacle with Thru Hole cap. Assembled board front side. Left is Dual Receptacle, right is Plug & Receptacle. Assembled case front side. Left is Dual Receptacle, right is Plug & Receptacle. Assembled case rear side. Left is Dual Receptacle, right is Plug & Receptacle. Since this a derivative work of the FujiNet connector design I will be following the open-source hardware license and releasing all design files at some point in the near future. I would like feedback from users before that happens so any changes or fixes can be made first. They will be put up on the FujiNet github when released. I will be attending VCFMW 2021 this year (as long as covid doesn't crash the party) and will have one of each with me if anyone wants to see them. I'll be the tall dude with long hair wearing a FujiNet T-Shirt Five boards are up for sale on fujinet.online and I added a free pickup at VCFMW shipping for all items if you will be there.
  11. Please capture debug output using the fujinet flasher (or a serial term of your choice) of attempting bootup and wifi connection. It may be that your configuration file is corrupted and you can wipe that by holding the B button on Fujinet when you power up the fujinet. Also delete the fnconfig.ini from sd card first.
  12. I can try it and report back. You could test by attempting to boot the two ATR files posted above and report what happens with each. This does not require changing the FujiNet XEX bootloader at all.
  13. CAS loading works on all hardware versions. v1.0 required an extra resistor for automatic playback (via MOTOR line) which should be on most units sold (afaik, only my first batch of 50 lack the resistor). Without the resistor you need to set B button to enable playback (in web ui) and the FujiNet B button starts cassette playback:
  14. I will not be making or even considering an ethernet based esp32 FujiNet, ever. There are simply not enough pins and most of the world is quite ok with wireless networking. Someone else can try to do it and make the proper firmware for it, I wish them luck.
