2. After driver installation, always power on the Plipbox before powering on your Amiga (or at the same time). If the Plipbox is powered on after the Amiga then no internet connectivity will be found.

3. Lastly you'll need a tcp/ip stack on your Amiga such as AmiTCP, Genesis, MiamiDx or Roadshow etc


The Simulant made Plipbox is based on Lallafa's "Plipbox" along with the Kuro68k PCB board.
