About the Wi-Fi Modem

The Commodore Wi-Fi Modem is built around two main components:  The Arduino-compatible MicroView with built-in OLED screen, and the Roving Networks RN-XV or “Wifly” wireless module.

These give you significant flexibility to use it as a straight-forward wireless solution for your Commodore, with optional expandability for standalone use or as a platform for interfacing to the outside world.  

The Commodore 64, SX-64, 128, and VIC-20 are all supported. Supports: 802.11 b/g Wi-Fi, DHCP, UDP, DNS, ARP, ICMP, TCP, Telnet, WEP, WPA-PSK (TKIP), and WPA2-PSK (AES), and Hayes emulation.   Any terminal software can be used.  It supports 2400 baud and 9600 baud using the UP9600 hack (available in Novaterm and Striketerm).
