The Amiga Future 146 will be released on the 5th September.

My set-up is an amiga 4000D with a 2065 network card (and a 68060 accelerator)
I currently have genesis installed and it's working with the following parameters:
IP address: 192.168.150
I'm using ethernet.device in the folder devs.networks
As mentioned everything is working with this configuration with genesis
1) I installed the software
2) I copy ethernet.device in the folder devs/netinterfaces
3) I installed roadie to have more clarity of what is happening
When I reboot my amiga, roadie is telling me that roadshow was not able to read 6 unknow keywords in the file devs/netinterfaces/ethernet.device
-> Line 3,4,6,7,8,9
show net status
local host address = not configured
default gateway address = not configured
domain name system server = 127.0.0.1
After reading the documentation, it looks like by default roadshow is set up for a dhcp server and that I should modify the config file
First issue is that I can't find any config file?
Next step was to try via a cli command the following:
When I enter the command, I don't have any error message but nothing is happening neither ?
I'm completely stuck here and I don't know what to do
Tx in advance for any help
I would recommend that you use the network device setup process which Roadshow was designed to use. It works by dragging an file from the "SYS:Storage/NetInterfaces" drawer into the "DEVS:NetInterfaces" drawer and restarting your Amiga. In your case that file should have been the "A2065" file. However, there is a catch: you picked a network driver whose name does not match the "a2065.device" driver name. You can remedy this by using a text editor to change the contents of the "A2065" configuration file once you have dragged it to the "DEVS:NetInterfaces" drawer. Just replace "a2065.device" with "ethernet.device" and save your changes back to disk, and subsequently restart your Amiga.
While you could set up your A2065 using the ConfigureNetInterface command, it does require much more knowledge of how the command works, and which parameters to use.
Please let me know how you fare
sorry for the very late answer
after installing the config file a2065 in netinterfaces folder, everything works!
Do you recommend a particular network card to maximize the efficiency of the roadshow?
