WiModem and the Plus/4
I have been attempting to connect to BBSs using my Plus/4. The OLED shows connected but there is no response on the terminal software (I am using Term-80 and Higgyterm). It just seems to time out. Occasionally, I will receive a busy message. The WiModem as currently configured works fine on my C64 and C128 using CCGMS, Dialogue128 and DesTerm. I know the Plus/4 has a real UART in it- should I be configuring it differently than how it is currently set for my C64? I have attempted toggling settings for DCD, CTS, etc., all to no avail. Any suggestions would be welcome as I originally bought the WiModem to use with my plus/4 after watching RetroCombs connect to a BBS with a Plus/4 on his YouTube channel using a WiFi Modem made by CommodoreForever (So I know it can be done).

Thanks, glen
It sounds like your UART chip is bad. There is nothing else required for the Plus/4 to work. You just load the terminal program, set the baud rate correctly in it, and then you can communicate with the WiModem.
Thanks for the quick reply! I'll try to get ahold of a different unit and test to see if that fixes the issue.
