Currently KolibriOS can connect to the internet only via LAN (ethernet) port. Other connection types (WiFi, GPRS, 3G etc.) are not supported. The LAN port has to be connected to router - it can't be connected directly to modem (because the router has to setup the ADSL/Cable connection).

Sorry for the delay. Right now, KolibriOS has just text-only Web browser, called HTMLv. You can start it from Menu-> Network -> Client -> Text-based browser.

I have an IBM Thinkpad 360E (Pentium II /256MB RAM). Kolibri OS loads and runs quite well on it. However the lan connection via cardbus (Texas Instruments), is not recognised. So I cannot get on the web. I would appreciate any help. Thanks

Hi! Sorry, but cardbus is not supported. Only LAN.
See http://wiki.kolibrios.org/wiki/Hardware ... t/#Network

Nope very sorry, we are a small project and can not provide the support of such rare and outdated hardware considering the point that such support is rather complex.

Hello and welcome,

I did some tests on a similar system some years ago, but couldn't get the cardbus properly initialized..
Maybe if you're lucky, it works on your hardware however.. viewtopic.php?f=3&t=2513

What LAN card do you have?

Hello:
the cardbus (fast ethernet pc card) was made by OVISLINK (Model: LFS-PCM-32DF). Ovislink provides two drivers for Linux, one for each of kernals 2.2 & 2.4 at this location:

https://contents.driverguide.com/conten ... README.TXT
Can either one of these be used with (or adapted to) Kolibri OS? Thanks for your consideration.

According to that documentation, your card is based on RTL8139 chip.
If we can get the cardbus bridge wording, I see no problem to get this network card working with existing RTL8139 driver for kolibrios.

What do I need to do, to get the cardbus bridge working?

For starters, this driver needs further development:

But I don't know if that's something up your alley :)
