ZZ9000 Network not working


I’m trying to get my ZZ9000 to connect to my router. Using roadshow, I can see in the log that it just times out waiting for a DHCP answer. If I specify static address, it looks like it’s connected but the router says nothing is using that IP and I can’t even ping the gateway from Amiga

It was working, then I reinstalled Workbench and it stopped.

I’ve also tried AmiTCP (as EasyNet) which says it’s connected (static IP) but nothing transfers. Tried MiamiDX, similar - “Online” but cannot ping.

If I swap to a USB Ethernet adaptor on the Freeway, it works fine - DHCP via Roadshow, downloads at decent speed etc. So it feels like an issue with the card, or with ZZ9000net.device

Are there any diagnostic tools?

could you try with this new Test Firmware and the included ZZ9000Net.device driver?


Edit: The included BOOT.bin-z3-20220429 needs to be renamed to BOOT.bin and placed on the MicroSD card that goes into ZZ9000.
