    Classic Mac defaults to LocalTalk v Alternative Ethernet

    My error, I had the Gateway IP address wrong in MacTCP So I put my routers IP address in the Gateway box and placed an alias of MacTCP Ping in the startup folder to give my Mac a presence on the network, and this works and also retains my setting of Alternative Ethernet in the Network control panel through restarts. So my guess is a check occurs during the startup of networking and with the wrong Gateway IP address this check fails and makes networking fall back to LocalTalk ?
  2. My Classic Mac defaults to LocalTalk instead of Alternative Ethernet and doesn't save my selection of Alternative Ethernet on restarting which I would like as I am using a Mini Asante EN/SC for file sharing. Is there a way of making my selection stick?

    SE/30 Freeze during startup

    FINALLY DIAGNOSED EXTRA MILE CLUB The freeze was being caused by a failing hard drive!

    SE/30 Freeze during startup

    I seem to have fixed this problem now by taking the RAM out and cleaning all the contact pads and sockets. Oh joy!

    SE/30 Freeze during startup

    My SE/30 is now freezing during startup from a cold start and on the second try it starts up no problem. It also freezes from a cold start with extensions off and I think it's happening before the extensions are drawn on the screen. Would Macsbugs show me what's happening? and does it sound like the RAM needs re-seating?

    SE/30 only reads write protected floppies

    FIXED Many thanks for all the help as this fault was caused by was a shorting Bournes filter at RP10, but I also enjoyed checking all the traces from the SWIM chip and using a heat gun for the first time.
  7. I've just got a Farallon card but don't know what the three position switch does?

    Or a short to ground on pins 5 and 16,

    SE/30 only reads write protected floppies

    Just tested RP10 again and I'm getting 000.2 ohms across pins 1-20 and 10-11 and 47 ohms across most of the others but 28.6 ohms on pins 5 and 16 to ground !?

    The Dead Mac Scrolls says check/replace two Bournes filters for the SE, so with the SE/30 I'm guessing the filter to check is RP10 as shown on the BOMARC page Does anyone know the typical values across the pins of this filter?

    SE/30 only reads write protected floppies

    I read about your experience somewhere else on the forum but don't own a heat gun or any kapton tape, ...... and worry I might ruin the board, ... but maybe I should first try lifting a SWIM off a beyond repair board to get the feel of doing it? Are there any tricks to lifting a chip of the board, like maybe a quick flick with a dental pick?

    They all check out and there doesn’t seem to be any damage around the SWIM chip, so now i’m stumped!?

    Wooo! probing both sides of the board is getting tricky but i have to check them all, thanks

    Still stuck, coming from the 68030 chip?
