Here's mine... oh ok, it's a Mac, but it's what I use almost all the time for QL stuff.
It's that or a picture of a QL in a box!

First WiFi experiments ready to begin.
Uses module similar to WiFi enabled SIF serial interface for ZX Spectrum.
Actually, at the moment, the connecting cable is bad.

In fact, Schön (funny - it is german word for "nice") keyboard is worse than the original membrane.
In normal conditions, it generates repeated keyclicks due to key bouncing so frequently, that it is almost unusable.
So it requires replace of the keyboard controller with Hermes chip. With Hermes, it is much better.

It stopped on the german QL Canon 9 pin serial connector. Seems, that it has nonstandard pinout.

On ZX Spectrum, this is already running.
For example, the IRC client:

or FTP client:

or terminal:
(can be used to send email).
I used the same principle (the only difference is - Spectrum has no serial port, and needs serial interface, but the QL has two built-in and needs only the WiFi module).

Hi dex,
Have you got a link to a site to buy the wifi modules?
