Update [1/25/2023] MEGA FIRMWARE UPDATE! The Old Net Serial to WIFI Adapter now does even more with a seriously awesome firmware update.
Some new features include:
See the screenshot on this page for more info!
Existing customers can update their modem to this firmware by using this tool: https://theoldnet.com/downloads/theoldnet-customer-flash-tool.zip
Update [1/5/2022] Great news, the Serial 2 WIFI Adapter not only acts as a Hayes modem but it can now act as a Ethernet adapter with TCP/IP or as a PPP Dial Up Networking connection! See this video to find out how: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S35-jFSMEf8
This is a plug and play solution to get your vintage computer connected to BBSs and MUDs again. It's professionally manufactured on a custom PCB. I am continuing to make improvements to the firmware.
This device behaves like a Hayes dial up modem. This means that all of your old software which uses a modem can use this device instead!
Want to host your own server on your vintage computer? No problem, put the modem into auto-answer mode.
If you want to connect two vintage computers together simply buy two!
This modem does not use the telephone line of course, it uses your WIFI network. Instead of dialing a phone number like ATDT 555-555-1234 you would enter an IP address and port like this, ATDT 10.11.12.13:23, or a domain like ATDT bbs.eotd.com
So you are now connected to the internet with your old computer, so what, what can be done? Do you remember Bulletin Board Systems? Well they are still alive and well, only these days they are available on the internet over Telnet rather than over telephone lines.
Using this modem emulator you can open up your favorite old terminal program on your favorite old computer and connect to these BBS's at 300 - 115200 bps. It behaves just like they used to.
A PDF manual is included with full set up instructions and list of AT commands.
Not included but required is a micro-USB 5v 1000ma (or greater) power supply (standard phone charger, etc).
It's simple and ready to use. I put care into coming up with a clean looking design.
This modem has the smallest footprint out of any on the market. Which means in a direct-connect set up it is less likely to prevent the use of neighboring ports!
It's built by the creator of theoldnet.com so you can expect long lived support for this device and new services that can be used by the modem such as theoldnet's telnet web proxy!

|Shipping Rate||Tracked||Ships From||First Item||Additional Items|
I try to ship all orders within 2 days to 2 weeks. Sometimes I get a quick spike in orders, if someone makes a YouTube video for example. In this case it takes me longer to put the orders together.
When you receive a shipping confirmation that doesn't mean it has physically shipped. It means I created a shipping label and updated the tracking status. This is because it's easier for me to keep track of things without making a mistake.
If I ship a product on Friday it may not get entered into the postal system until Monday. If there is a holiday in Canada it may be delayed by that additional day.
The inventory level does not represent the number of products that are pre-assembled. Products are assembled when ordered. The inventory level is a fuzzy calculation of how many raw materials I have on hand and how many finished products I think I can assemble in the estimated time frame.
