The WiModem232 is an internet modem for any computer with a RS-232 interface port that emulates a standard Hayes compatible modem. Just plug the WiModem232 into the "serial" port and connect to BBS's all over the world or run a BBS of your own!
The WiModem232 requires access to your local router and supports easy WiFi setup, including WPS one-button setup!
Firmware updates are done using a simple command that fetches the latest firmware from the CBMSTUFF.COM server and updates the WiModem232 - all without ever having to remove the WiModem232 from your computer!
The WiModem232 hardware supports 75 baud to 230400 baud and every possible parity, start bit, and stop bit configuration. Note: the terminal software you are using determines the maximum baud rate.
The WiModem232 requires external 5v power. Connect any 5v source (PC, phone charger, etc.) using a cable having a Mini-B type USB connector.
The WiModem232 controls ALL of the standard RS-232 lines: Rx/Tx, RTS/CTS, DTR/DSR, and DCD all at the same time. This means that you can use the WiModem232 to run a BBS!
A DB25 to DB9 or RS-232 gender changer may be required for your particular computer. These are available separately. The WiModem232 uses a DB25 female connector (plugging into a DB25 male port).
This version of the WiModem232 does not come with the OLED screen.
