    Mac IIci & Etherlink/NB - trouble getting Ethernet to work

    Options connecting a wifi modem with RS-232 port to my IIci?

    Hey everyone, I bought a WiFi modem that will allow my IIci to dial into BBSes. If it works, I may post about it in another thread :-)  my problem is that it comes with a RS-232 port, which isn't something our Macs have. Rummaging in the basement boxes I've found a RS-232 DB9 to 8P Mini Din...

    A Mac LC, a Daynaport E / Z and *shudder* MacTCP

    Scenario: A Macintosh LC is to be connected to a home network via a Daynaport E / Z for printing to a Postscript printer & FTP / Gopher access. OpenTransport is no option since it requires a (fast) 68030, so we’re having to use MacTCP 2.06. Available Hardware: Macintosh LC with 10MB RAM...
