Link-232 Wifi (Swiftlink Cart w/wifi)

I was wondering if anyone has had success running Image 3.0 with the Link-232 Wifi cartridge?  There is also a version of the Link-232 Wifi that fits internally on a C64 or C128.

I know this was brought up about a year ago on here with Retro Rewinds WiFi modem and Image 3.0. There might be some info in there to help you, other wise either @bucko or @larryhedman might have some input on this also.

@palkat @mhoney To be honest, I haven't seen much about it.. If it works as a Swiftlink and uses regular AT commands it should work with the Swiftlink setup in the modem setup program.. With 3.0 there is basically only 2 set ups, Swiftlink and Non Swiftlink.. Sounds like it is a Swiftlink style so go into IM choose modem setup, Pick Swiftlink, then enter all of the other info as if you are using a Hayes modem. It's a pretty simple setup, I have set it up to use a real swiftlink, and have played a bit with the built in Swiftlink emulation of the Ultimate 64 (didn't have a lot of luck with that though as it doesn't accept AT commands or at least I couldn't get it to).. Let us know how you make out...

Thanks for the replies.  My research made me conclude that this product has much better compatibility than the Ultimate 64's emulation, so I'm crossing my fingers.  I'll report back when I have any useful feedback.  In the meantime, here are some links if anyone else is interested:

Glad to hear that Mark, I think it will work well then. Swiftlink runs real well with it, both real and emulated..
