    Oh this wasn't really a steal but... Airport Extreme 4th Gen: http://www.ebay.com/itm/232263227475?_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT I wanted to post this incase some people didn't know, but: They have these "Mesh" WiFi routers called Eero and they are like $500 and you get 3 units, that bridge in their own special way, meshing. Honestly tho, on a budget, and lowendmac style, you can get an Airport Extreme 4th Gen or 2nd Gen, for basically $25 a piece shipped! But here is why a 68Kmla cat, might want to do this. WPA, WPA2, WEP, etc I forget right now, but on OS9 with a Wifi card it isn't FRIENDLY let say with WEP for sure on a 4th Gen, so if you have just a 4th Gen you can't lower the security unless you just have NO security if you want OS9 to connect (This is in Airport Utility macOS Sierra), but if you have say 3 x 4th Gen, in your OWN Bridging design and then ethernet to a 2nd Gen, making it's own 802.11b/g you can still setup WPA for OS9 (2nd Gen), I mean it's low security but...I make mine private/hidden, so it's not visible. But you can get 3 x 4th Gen and 1x 2nd Gen for $100 STRAIGHT. If you can live with 802.11n, and b/g for old stuff eBay is A SICK ASS way to go vs Eero... Plus compatibility with ALL your Devices... Good Luck Out there...

    So, I had my Quadra 800 sitting there with a dual boot OS one for 68K and the other for PPC (FAT), just in case I some day find an APMUC, well after a year of having an eBay listing followed one showed up! APMUC: http://www.ebay.com/itm/142291064628?_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT Just got it yesterday, opened it up, and put this sucker in, booted to 68K which it was running, went to Extensions Manager and loaded a group just for PPC, then I rebooted. I went to the PPC Control Panel, and turned on PPC. Shutdown the computer, counted to 30, then reboot, got the PPC chime, booted right up. The video card I have has PPC drivers and things were snappy! But I just wanted this for nostalgia. Checked About Mac, and listed as Power Macintosh, all crunched up of course, then I ran some PPC only apps I compiled, and boom sauce! Went back to the CPU CP, switched back to 68K, shutdown, 30 count powered back on. 68K chime. Last test, boot into A/UX with card installed, NO PROBLEMS. Smooth sailing, booted back into 7.6.1 (68K) then, shutdown... That's my weekend coming up...

    Man, I used to have one of these, but it was plastic, I just found two of these bad boys, and now all of my machines can be connected. Off the last port on my 8 port switch, I got 3 machines in a daisy using these, YES! Farallon EtherWaves! Two of them (metal versions): http://www.ebay.com/itm/172401536140?_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT So, I go from, last port on the hub, to Quadra 800 to Quadra 840 to either PowerBook 520/520c (with an Asante), closing the path. So happy! They work well...
  5. Man you guys are DEEP in here, the only person I saw out in the wild (on other non-retro forums) was the White Falcon. You guys are hardcore! This sounds cool I want to enter my rigs into this comp, I am finishing them up, and they are solid. (my thing is I pretty much locked down all the retro I can handle, and I am doing great now). I don't get into the "retro-diahrea" where you have just like boxes and boxes and retro-cable after retro-cable just jamming up closets and stuff, ok well yeah I guess I do have a couple garbage sacks with like 50 or so cables in each but, yeah it's kinda like "retro-diahrea" at certain point. HAHA STAY TRUE GUYS! PEACE OUT!

    Just picked this up as the final piece for my G3/266 legacy system: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Mac-OS-X-Server-Version-10-2-NEW-Unlimited-Factory-Sealed-New-Old-Stock-/182065678586?hash=item2a63f5c8fa:g:9AQAAOSwNSxVPV-x 10.2 Server Unlimited, there's 1 left. Now I'll run ASIP 6.2 in 8.6 for classic and 10.2.8 server in Mac OS X! Yes!! There's one left too...

    Haven't got this yet, but I needed a 68k/PPC machine with WI-FI for the COUCH! http://www.ebay.com/itm/222063139186?_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT Got it for the Apple 40th Anniversary! Should be my last piece for a while. Too bad it's only 30GB and only 802.11b but it still boots 9.2.2 and will run 10.5 if needed when I can get around to getting a 60GB or 120GB SSD I am just going to run 9.2.2 and 10.4.11 with classic mode, and native 9, hopefully, till that lasts... if any one knows of a 802.11g option that would be cool...

    This was a pretty good deal: AsanteFast 10/100 Nubus http://www.ebay.com/itm/181777407542?_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT Drivers not needed in 9.2.2 or 10.2.8 and gets good speed...

    Setting up ethernet and Internet....

    When you un-stuff the OT 1.3 folder put the folder right in the Hard Drive, i.e. at the Root of the Drive, Macintosh HD:"Install Folder", you can't have it on the Desktop or anywhere else, that one took me a while to wrap my head around too.

    uncompress software for Color Classic? (7.6.1)

    wait how are you able to connect to the internet? goto macgui.com and type expander.

    uncompress software for Color Classic? (7.6.1)

    Stuffit Deluxe 4.0 with 68k, Stuffit Deluxe 4.5 with PPC, have a copy of Expander 5.5 for your 68k to get thru the newer sits, and use Expander 6.0 for your ppc for the newer ones. I always use the older method to stuff myself. But bear in mind this is just preferences, but the 4.0 package is cleaner and most everything works unless you run into, newer archives, which if you use Magic Menu, it will just "wiff" and do nothing, but then you just drag to Expander! This is in my opinion the least buggy version and has the most features, you have to turn OFF SpaceSaver cause that will just chew up your processor.

    CF Card Adapters Compared

    Yeah, I figured I would at least be able to get 66MHz bus speeds tho around 40MB/s to 50MB/s, Not necc' 133MHz speeds tho, which was sad. But I will settle for 13.333MB/s I suppose, it's snappy. It's better than 2.5MB/s or 5MB/s... And the other thing is it's NOT GOING TO DIE, but if one CF does die, I will just get a replacement with NEW technology (the CF Card) thanks to Photographers of the world. And my machines will run forever, and that's what counts the most!
  13. I recently compared the speeds of two different CF Adapters PCI ATA 133 http://www.ebay.com/...eUAAOSwcwhVQZ6Z IDE Adapter (1) http://www.ebay.com/...7gAAOSwgQ9VrbWO SanDisk 64GB http://www.bestbuy.c...2&skuId=2037002 PowerCable(s) http://www.ebay.com/...I4AAOSw14xWL8Gk the this other adapter which stated UDMA: Addonics, IDE Adapter (2) http://www.addonics....s/adebidecf.php Long story short, even tho the Addonics states UDMA, I was only able to get less than DMA-33. The cheaper one from above, came in at around 3MB/s faster in 3 tests I performed. 13MB/s vs 10MB/s So go with the cheap China ones if you have a Beige G3 even with an ATA card, only for convenience, I really pulled my hair out hoping to get at least around 40MB/s, and the SanDIsk Card is rated at 800x 120MB/s. Addonics has a non-female version which I would have to mount in the hard drive bay, that they say up to 133/MBs but I just don't think they can deliver in this machine: http://www.addonics.com/products/aeudmacf.php Says up to UDMA-6 (133MB/s), but I can't find any that would fit into a PCI ATA card conveniently, without ribbons So don't waste your time, unless somebody wants to try the UDMA-6 one listed above. Hope this helps a little... Laters...
