Hardware News   Hardware News : Catweasel software updates, X-Surf news
   posted by _Steve_ on 18-Nov-2002 14:32:56 (4204 reads)
Jens Schoenfeld of Individual Computers recently announced the following updates:

The software drivers for all Catweasel models have been updated, and the first picture of the new Catweasel MK3 PCI/Flipper is now available.

The Catweasel MK3 is botha Zorro and a PCI card in one. Read on to see how it works...

The popular X-Surf networking card will be available after a new production run, and the price has been dropped.
The Windows-drivers for the Catweasel ISA have been extended by some features. Mainly support for the new Catweasel MK3 PCI/Flipper has been added. Also in the archive: a driver for Windows 2000 and Windows XP that makes use of a keyboard that's connected to the Catweasel MK3 PCI/Flipper.

The Amiga-version of the driver has also been adapted to the new controller, the new multidisk.device V3.62 now supports the Catweasel MK3 in a Zorro slot, or on any clockport of an Amiga. This device is prepared to support the Catweasel MK3 in a PCI slot of an emulated Amiga (for example Amithlon or Amiga Forever).

Many people have asked for a picture of the new controller, because it's hard to imagine how the same board can fit in the Zorro slot and in a PCI slot. Here's a picture of the controller, taken out of the running production. It shows the bare board without the metal bracket and the second joystick connector.

Good news for all Amiga users who want to bring their computer to a network: The most successful networking card in the Amiga market has been updated, and the price will be lower. The reason for the continuous success of the board might be it's software support: The X-Surf 2 will remain the only networking card on the market that comes with PPPoE drivers - these are necessary for most DSL modems. As opposed to the older model, the new X-Surf 2 does not have a BNC connection any more, all other technical details remain the same. If you need this connector you should be quick, because the last boards have already been shipped to our resellers a few weeks ago.
