    MacTCP Networking

    I recently got my Macintosh Plus working with all 4 MB of ram. I have an Asante EN/SC Ethernet to SCSI adapter and want to put it to some use. I hooked up everything and downloaded the EN/SC EtherTalk software along with AppleTalk 57.0.4. Installed it on system 7.1 and also got MacTCP 2.1. I made sure to hook the adapter to a 10base-T only hub so it wouldn’t get confused with 10/100. I tried to configure the TCP/IP settings but I don’t think it’s making a connection at all. MacWeb won’t connect or load it just spits out an error code as if the machine was connected to nothing. Here is a post from someone who had success with a similar setup: http://lowendmac.com/rivera/05/1129.html any help and/or advice is greatly appreciated! Below are some images of my TCP control panel as well as a hardware diagram.

    Configure MacTCP?

    Thank you for all the responses. I will try everything I have been suggested and post my results after experimenting. I connected my MacBook to the hub and was able to obtain a connection of <10Mbps. On another note I applied the MacTCP 2.1 patch that Glenn Anderson made and it changed the panel look and made things look a little simpler. This may do nothing but it was worth a try. Also here is a post of someone who succeeded with a very similar setup: http://lowendmac.com/rivera/05/1129.html Below is a diagram showing the current hardware configuration.

    Configure MacTCP?

    Yes to both. The IP is staying when I leave MacTCP but I do not see it appearing in my routers DHCP settings. I configured the DNS by what I read from another forum on this sight. Someone said that the Domain should be a single period and the domain IP should be that of your router. I am curious if it has something to do with the MAC address (or lack there of). In addition to all this when I installed MacTCP it didn't automatically plant in my control panel I had to move it there. (Just a side note in case that would indicate an incorrect installation of the software. PS: I am also using a WiFi bridge/Extender to make the Ethernet connection don't know if that would make any difference, it has it's own IP separate from the router. Below are some images of my MacTCP control panel and my router settings.

    Configure MacTCP?

    Yes I am sure all of the hardware is functioning properly. I have tested the Plus's SCSI port with an external drive so I know that's working. The EN/SC is blinking indicating it is receiving information and I did a speed test with the hub with a modern laptop and it didn't skip a beat. No more than 10 Mbps. When running the Asante Troubleshooter I can even see that the machine is receiving packets. I suspect that either something is wrong with MacWeb or that the TCP/IP settings aren't configured correctly. Not super experienced in networking especially with exotic hardware like this. Below is an image of the test indicating that it is receiving packets.
