  1. Hello all, When I bought my Centris 650 a few months back, I also bought an AAUI adapter so I could hook it up to the internet as well as transfer files with my OS 9 machines if I needed to do that. The adpater, which was NIB when I got it, worked fine for a while, but I think there must be a short in the cable that runs from the box to the Mac because the last time I used it I had to bend the adapter's cable and position the box a certain way otherwise I wouldn't get any signal. So I am now debating whether I should buy another adapter box or buy a Nubus card with an RJ45 port on it? All three of my Nubus slots are empty and the only other card I considered getting was maybe a graphics card at some point. On the other hand, another AAUI to RJ45 adapter box would be cheaper and not require any drivers. Any advice is appreciated. Thanks in advance

  3. Hi, Last week I (Dutchman, Amsterdam) bought a Macintosh IIfx from an German auction site. It came with a 'modern' ethernet card: 10/100 Mbit and RJ-45 connector, along with some other cards. Unfortunately, I don't have a clue where to get drivers. Asanté drivers won't work, has anyone got a clue where to obtain those? Due to the Radius Rocket 33, I hope these drivers will support System 7.1. Below some detailed photo's of the card and 2 with the card inside the Mac. The ethernet card is the 3rd from the left... Would it matter which slot it resides in? At first, I was hoping to do some fishing in the German language 5 1/4" Apple HD 40, but that crashed on me. So no luck there. After that, I've tried 1 of the other 4 remaining cards that came with the deal, a FWB JackHammer. The control panel has an update feature where you can select the card you want to update, no luck either as it did not mention any cards at all... Does anyone have a clue what brand / model this could be and if so, where to obtain drivers? Thanks in advance, cheers, Jeroen.
  4. HI All, I have been working to get this machine back online... Today good progress was made getting a SeaSonic PS wired up as the IIci PS was not functioning: The IIci fires up and I have been using the drive that came with the with 7.1 installed. I also got a Radius PrecisionColor 8-Xj video card and Asante ethernet card: With both cards installed and my monitor moved to Radius, I get this on-screen and the machine appears to have booted however I can't access the drive nor is the cursor present. When I move the monitor back to the motherboard video, it works fine. When I open the Monitors CP, it only detects the on-board video. Running Slot Info also does not detect the video card. As to the Asante, Slot Info see it however I can't get it to work: When I plug a video or ethernet card into my PDS slots on the SE/30 or IIsi, the cards just work. This does not seem to be the case with these NuBus cards. I thought I might need a CP or init so I searched around and found RadiusWare 3.3 (nubus) which can bee seen in the screen grab immediately above. I installed only the init and during boot, I can see a radius icon being loaded with an "x" through it, however after boot (with video coming from the motherboard), Monitors CP only sees on-board video as you can see from Slot Info. As to the Asante, the reason you see MacCon in slots D and E is that one is the NuBus and the other is my Asante EN/SC which is working fine from the external SCSI connection and allowed me to copy the downloaded Radius bits to the IIci. Its LEDs light up however the working ethernet cable does not give me any activity on my functioning D-Link 10/100 switch. Perhaps I need some software here? I ran out of day after trying to get the Radius working. What is this NuBus N00B missing here? THx
  5. One of the projects I have been working on is getting my vintage hardware up and running. Early documentation (before PDFs) is getting much more difficult to find on-line. I am taking the time to archive some of the documentation I have with my hardware in a high-quality format so that a reference is available for future users. The FWB NuBus SCSI Jackhammer manual with high-quality text and graphics is attached it to this thread. FWB_Nubus_Jackhammer_Manual.pdf
  6. You can download this brochure, the Owner's Guide, and the control panel (hqx file) via archive.org : https://archive.org/details/MicroConversions2124NBII @olePigeon Thanks for the reminder.
  7. I decided to give my Sonnet Sonata 24 Pro a try for the first time today. Stuck it in my Radius 81/110 and it works fine, albeit slow since the drivers are not loaded. Performing heavy searching dug up nothing. The Wayback machine has some files archived but the file size is suspiciously small for a video driver, only 48kb! The actual VillageTronic site is long gone. Sonnet does not host the drivers for this card either. Would anyone happen to have the drivers for this? Thanks!
  8. I had a bit of an impulse buy today. It's been a very, very, very long time since I bought anything 68k Mac related. Browsing eBay I ran into a fairly cheap SuperMac VideoSpigot for $17 with shipping included. I have two different SuperMac Nubus video cards so I thought this would pair well with either of them. The price was certainly right! Old video capture stuff has always interested me even if I don't have any practical use for it. It's just cool. Lately to escape the troubles and trials of life I have been working on my old computers, selling what I do not need and keeping what matters to me. I stuck with x86 PC's initially as it was just easier to move files between my modern Win7/Win10 machines and the old stuff. Networking between Win95 or WinNT4 to Win10 is still doable with minimal hacks on the Win10 end. Now that most of my old PC's are fully restored I am moving on to making sure my core Mac collection is completely operational. One of the tasks on my plate will be to establish a functional bridge machine between the 68k/PPC Mac world and the modern internet. The card hasn't come in yet but I will do a detailed review and write up of it in this thread once it does. Hopefully the board is in good working order.

    What kind of card is this? Please se attached files. Bw, Kristian
  10. So, I finally got System 8.5.1 installed on my LC575. For the life of me, I can't get networking to work. DHCP is not pulling an address. I'm using the Farrallon NuBus Ethernet card. http://www.ebay.com/itm/like/111792358051?lpid=82&chn=ps&ul_noapp=true The drivers seem fine. It passes tests. I'm seeing lights on the 10/100/1000 switch and on the card. Any ideas? Thanks!
  11. Hi, I'm still a newbie with old Macintoshes so bear with me. I'm getting a Centris 650 in the mail in a few days and it comes with two Nubus cards installed. The first is an unknown video card and the second is (I think) a Digidesign Audiomedia card. My questions are: 1) Do Nubus audio and video cards speed up system performance? If so, how much and how can you tell? 2) I'm not doing any audio recording but I will be playing games and multimedia cd-roms. Does the Audiomedia card improve sound for games, or did all 68k-era compatible games just output 8 bit sound natively since most 68K Macs weren't capable of doing 16 bit sound? 3) This Centris 650 has ethernet built-in via an AAUI-15 connector. Is there any system performance or internet speed difference in getting a dedicated Nubus ethernet card, or is this on-board ethernet sufficient?
  12. OK, so I'm stumped on this one. I've tried to look all over here as well as everywhere Bing and Google would show me and they were not taking me to where I needed to go. I have an Apple EtherTalk NB Card running in my 8MB RAM, 80MB HD, 32KB cache card Macintosh IIci and it wants to connect to the network. It can't get a link. It's running System 6.0.8 with Network Software Installer 1.4.5 installed, and MacTCP 2.0.6. I have to give the Comcast DNS servers rather than making the wireless router the DNS server like Open Transport on Mac OS 8.6 and later. I read that sometimes MacTCP needs different defaults than Open Transport, and so I put the Comcast DNS servers in rather than letting it use my AirPort Base Station as a DNS server the way you can with Open Transport. The current networking hardware setup is a 802.11b AirPort Snow/Dual Ethernet UFO base station along with a 10/100Base-TX Ethernet switch I occasionally use that both of them features System 6 obfuscating features such as auto-negotiation as regards duplex, auto-sensing as regards whether it's 10baseT or 100Base-TX, full duplex (because all other Macs on my network support operation that is supposedly a toxic trio for a System 6 Mac with a 1989 vintage Ethernet card that just barely supports AppleTalk Phase 2.) What happens when I have it hooked up using the best available connection system is that the IIci properly initializes the card and goes ahead and sets MacTCP to connect via Ethernet, and AppleTalk to connect via EtherTalk the way it says you should do under the article about Classic Mac Networking. If I change the settings software or hardware-wise from what I read should work (and does work as much as possible) for my situation, I get the famous error that "There was an error starting your AppleTalk connection. The built-in LocalTalk port will be used instead." According to years of research, if it doesn't say that message, that means your settings are correct for the network you want to use. But since the network is auto-negotiating, auto-sensing, and full duplex (because all my other devices support those three items), the IIci can't light up the link signal on the transceiver. At least that's what I am theorizing. If the transceiver wasn't compatible with the card, then it would fail to get EtherTalk going according to everything I've read. But yet with those three advanced features on the router end, that combination is what to me seemingly not allowing it to establish a connection. It even works well enough that if you disconnect the Ethernet cord, it knows it's been disconnected and you have to zap the PRAM in order to get the IIci to not display the expected error message until you fiddle with it again (i.e by moving it to a different port, such as a port on the external 4-port 10/100Base-TX switch or on a different router.) If I'm barking up the wrong tree here, then I want to know why it seems to work in all areas except getting a link (and of course, through the link that it wants to have but does not, being able to work with my other computers and the Internet.)
