Before you give up on yours, make sure you have a powerful milliamp power
supply, they eat a lot of juice and you may find yours conks out when going
into GUI mode if you don't have enough power. I use mine headless to
attach to terminals with simH and/or as a "modem" kind of like the
WIFIrs232. Another very reasonable replacement for the WIFI232 is a Rasp
Pi Zero. I have about five of these I use for many things including a
network device for terminals.
