Hi Folks,

WiFi232 guy here. I'll be at Festivus on Saturday and will have a very
limited number of WiFi232 modems for $50/ea. Jim, I'll set one aside
for you if you'd like.

Ethan, The stock ESP firmware in theory would work, but it's
cumbersome and the AT command set isn't Hayes compatible. A previous
version of my custom firmware is on GitHub.

As Bill said, a Raspberry Pi running the patched version of tcpser is an option:

Leif Bloomquist took this idea a step further and mounted a Pi Zero to
a card for the C64 user port.

Leif also has developed something similar he calls the WiFiTerminal:

cbmstuff.com has plans for a new WiFi RS-232 modem:

Hope this info helps everyone.
