Re: [K12OSN] Wireless - TC boot status



Hello All,

Thinking more about this (providing someone with more smarts than me),
It seems on a mobo that has onboard wifi,a person could somehow dump
some code into the bios that would throw pxe into the wifi options,
(along with the afformentioned scanning for AP's).
I remember way back in the first versions of K12LTSP  doing the bios mod
to old p133 mobos with onboard nics that dumped etherboot on to the
bios. As I recall you used an advanced version of flash.exe and the
like. There was always enough spare space on the bios chip that would
allow this code to be added.
It worked slicker than snot,as this was when pxe was just coming on to
the scene,and etherboot was still the choice.
It made an useless dumpster bound p133 box have some life anyways,,other
than being big as a Cadillac they worked and still do work fine with
K12LTSP!
Here is a good challenge for someone.,,,:)

Take Care,
Barry
