Re: Q68 and serial to WiFi modem. Doable?

Ahah! Thanks again Derek :) Seems like 300 baud is not available though - BAUD 300 gives me "Not implemented" still. However, BAUD 9600 worked :) I may need to get my QL out of it's box so that I can connect to the modem for the first time and set its BAUD rate up to 9600 at that end too. ...

Q68 and serial to WiFi modem. Doable?

Hi, I have a serial to WiFi modem and would like to connect it to my Q68 so that I can do some good old BBSing. Does the Q68's serial port support this, and if so would somebody be kind enough to guide me through the steps I need to follow on the SMSQE end of things? I must confess that I was comple...
