At some point it'd be great to work with someone with a 6100 to put a bus analyzer on the port and try to figure out what's going wrong. This may be a TashTalk problem, and that worries me...
Thank you cheesestraws!Just going to link here to @daanvdl's new thread for the AirTalks they're building: https://68kmla.org/bb/index.php?thr...-and-play-localtalk-dongle.43838/#post-478876
Now that they've successfully built some and beta-tested the files for me, I'm officially making some noise that this is open hardware under the CERN-OHL-S-2.0. The hardware files are at https://github.com/cheesestraws/airtalk/tree/main/hardware but you might be well advised to wait for @daanvdl 's instructions, which are less perfunctory than mine. Go forth and build some!
No, You will need a crosscable: https://airtalk.shop/?product=apple-modem-cableIs this the correct sort of cable required? I tried using the 8-pin to 8-pin cable that went with my Apple MIDI Interface, but that doesn't seem to work.
Model: SKU# 220961A. Apple Macintosh Serial Modem Cable. Mini DIN 8-Pin Male. Male Pin-1 to Male Pin 1. Male Pin-2 to Male Pin 2. Male Pin-3 to Male Pin 3. Male Pin-4 to Male Pin 4. Male Pin-5 to Male Pin 5.www.ebay.com
EDIT: Doesn't seem like it.
My (flimsy) recollection is that modems used the straight through cables, consistent with the (annoying in my opinion) DTE (computer) vs. DCE (peripheral) designations. Printers and many other peripherals used crossover cables. Point-to-point LocalTalk between two Macs also can use a crossover cable.I've seen straight through ones sold as serial, irritatingly. My only theory is that some samplers use it or something?
