Well, I finally figured it out, and it wasn’t that complex after all.
In Windows Vice 3.1, make these settings in RS-232 Settings
ACIA Settings -> Off (Do not enable ACIA)
Userport Settings -> Device 1 -> 2400 Baud
RS232 Settings -> Device 1 -> 192.168.0.xx:25232
The xx is your local machine IP. (In windows, check Ethernet Settings -> Hardware Properties -> IPv4 Address)
Then get tcpser going with these settings in command prompt:
tcpser -v 25232 -p 6400 -s 2400 -l 4
Load CCGMS, use User Port 300-2400 and 2400 baud settings.
As with all versions of vice, file transfers do not work. If you want to upload and download programs, get a real c64. 🙂 Or use CGTerm.
Cases for the Strikelink WiFi are now available from
They look pretty cool and come in a variety of colors.
At this time, modems are still out of production, but I hope to resume in the near future.
I’ve sold out of my current run of Strikelink Wifis. I hope to resume production in the near future.

I modded CMBBS to 2400 baud (works with the Strikelink WiFi!) and added multiple drive/partition/sd2iec folder support. Multiple U/D Drives, fixes to the user account system to make it more stable. There’s a few bugs. Check out the docs file for what to fix and some other features. The source is included. Sorry, I’m not offering support but if you have a major problem, let me know.
In the interest of allowing more people to enjoy Quantum Link Reloaded, I’ve made a program that patches the Q-link Disk to have the following abilities:
– 2400 baud on the user port
– 2400 baud via Swiftlink
– Use of any drive # besides drive 8 and disabled 1541 fastload.
There’s some bugs in this. The patcher causes Q-Link to not work on my particular sd2iec setup in anything other than the People Connection area (I get a disk error message when switching to another area), but on my other system it works 100% perfectly. So I need people to help test this out and tell me what they experience with their setup so I can pinpoint what external factors are causing this issue.
You must load and run the patcher from the same device # you’re going to be patching, so if you have an sd2iec as drive #10, for example, you need to also load the patcher program from drive #10, then switch to the d64 image of your Q-link disk before running. Planning on changing this for future versions.
This will only work with a .d64 image or 1541 formatted floppy. It will not work with a 1581 disk or .d81 image, or a raw directory on an sd2iec type system, as Q-link stores user data in the directory track #18 and expects it to be there next time it loads. I’d like to get this modified for a future version, where Q-Link would store all data in an actual program file on the disk.
You need to get a QuantumLink.d64 disk image from Q-link.net to run Q-link.
Initial Q-Link Reloaded First Time Setup (The simple version):
- Use Patcher to disable 1541 Fastload and SD2IEC Fix (if needed)
- Set your modem to 1200 baud. (Or 2400 if using Swiftlink)
- Load Q-Link
- Select “Connect to Qlink” from the initial Welcome screen
- Change modem type to the bottom option (Other Command Driven Modems)
- Change Access Number to +5551212 (This isn’t important, just needs to have something there with a + and 7 digits mimicing a phone number).
- Load Q-Link
- At the green screen, type atdtq-link.net:5190 and hit F1 when you connect. (If using Swiftlink, apply patch now before dialing).
- If using 2400 baud user port patch, sign up for Q-Link at 1200 baud, then apply the patch after your first call. The 2400 baud user port patch crashes Q-link on the initial sign up but works fine once you already have an account.
