Founders Edition: from the video card industry. Syn. for 'no proper software yet'. But the times are achangin'. 

CoCoIO is based on the WizNet 5100s ethernet chip. This amazing device can manage 4 separate TCP or UDP network stacks all by itself, the host computer's only job is to feed these pipes. Some applications can be written in basic!

I'm describing a simple web browser in the blog section of this site, and the code is available at https://github.com/rickulland/CoCoIO

There is help on the way. See https://github.com/n6il/cocoio-dw for the start of a proper OS9 network stack, including ntpdate! 

Compatibility issues: We have identified two configurations that don’t work right now.

A CoCo3 with 86 GIME and 6309 CPU, running NitrOS9 6309 version. The workaround is NitrOS9 6809 – cpu is fine, it’s some gremlin in the optimized code vs the not so optimized 86 GIME.

A CoCo3 with a Pro-Tector3. Afraid the only workaround we have right now is remove the Pro-Tector, but we are looking for a real fix.
