  1. Hey guys, In my previous thread I heavily modded my G4 Cube and sprayed it copper. I wasn't keen on the copper so today re-sprayed it gunmetal grey. After spraying the case, since I had the internals of the Cube out I decided to route the USB sound card internally, remove the outside interrupt/reset buttons and replace them with RCA jacks... which fit perfectly. FYI I haven't lost the buttons, I just mounted them inside near the graphics card, but I don't think I've ever had to use them to be honest.
  2. I found a site here that has some images you could try: http://www.savagetaylor.com/2018/01/05/setting-up-your-vintage-classic-68k-macintosh-using-a-scsi2sd-adapter/ I am not an expert on Macs to be honest, my _only_ experience with vintage Macs has been restoring this machine and an 840av recently. If I were asked to install the OS from scratch again I would be scratching my head as I remember there quite a few loops to jump through. Luckily with this machine it came with a fully installed stock version of 8.1 that I simply imaged to my CF card. I personally would advise *against*
  3. @ants I'm wondering if your extension could be ported to OS X? I have a similar setup on my G4 cube which uses an internal wifi travel router, but being able to select network etc would be bliss. ps - there is a small bug in the extension (I think?) when trying to shutdown the Mac it will say 'Cannot shut down due to open apps' the first time, then when I press shutdown a second time it works. I am pretty sure it's the extension causing this behavior.
  4. @cheesestraws I am so sorry, I don't know why but for some reason I didn't see any notifications for the thread! Thank you so much for making this, absolutely appreciated!
  5. Hi @ants I got it working, this is how: 1. did a full reset of the router, holding reset for 10 seconds. 2. Once connected, plugged into my main pc with ethernet and went to 3. Set my password etc, then entered the main screen --- this is where I did something different --- 4. At the bottom where it says 'Repeater' I clicked 'Scan networks' 5. I clicked the drop-down list and selected my local wifi, connected 6. Tested connectivity on my pc, works, no problems 7. ssh into the mini router to install JsonRpc --- unplug from ma
  6. @ants Yeah ip's seem fine. I'm gonna try some more stuff today I'll let you know what I find.
  7. Hey guys, The G4 Cube PSU is terribly inefficient. Even when the machine isn't turned on the PSU is kicking out heat. Has anyone known of a modern equiv or has anyone got the pinout for it?
  8. NEW DAY, NEW TESTING: Okay decided to start again, I re-flashed with the latest GL-AR300M16 firmware from the manufacturers website, this still includes WRT 18.06 so it should be fine. I figured it might be the pure OpenWRT that might be causing an issue. After this, I was facing the same difficulty so I decided to omit the Ethtool stage and not swap the ports - voila! The Mac was talking to the Router. I have the menu with all the Wifi signals, it connects okay! BUT, none of my programs connect to the internet because of 'no DNS server'. So for some reason it doesn't s
  9. I also had good luck with VIS - but that is some terrible service. If they don't want to give refunds for faulty products they should advertise as so. I checked their website and they do not have a refund policy for defective units, they only talk about 'ordering by mistake' and restocking fees. But they do have this: https://www.applemacparts.co.uk/index.php?route=account/return/insert Which is probably what I would have used first before just simply e-mailing them. You can clearly state the item is faulty with lines on the screen.
  10. @ants Firstly thank you for all your work, but I am struggling, I hope you can help me get this working: system: --------------------- Powerbook 190 Using System 8.1 with 40mb ram pcmcia 3com 589 ethernet Opentransport 1.3 --------------------- Process I followed: GL-AR300M16 / Updated to latest OpenWRT 19.07 (sets the default ip to Connected it to my wifi to see if the bridge is working (yes it does) Installed Json RPC, which just involves this correct? opkg install luci-mod-rpc /etc/init.d/uhttpd restart Installed
  11. @cheesestraws I can confirm this solved my problem
  12. I found this option in the TCPIP control panel, I'll try unchecking 'Load only when needed' and see how it changes things.
