  1. I get this issue with MODE32 + macOS 7.5.5 + 32-bit memory addressing on. For me, the Restart button does not work.
  2. To make a longer version of the silly short cable of the SE/30 (and likely SE) that goes between the motherboard and the analog board, these are the molex connector parts. You can find these are on Digikey, Mouser, etc. To make the cable, you want the Receptacle and the Receptacle Pins. I've included the other parts too since it's pretty easy to damage the header connector on the motherboard with hot air when recapping. Also, you'll need a crimper. You cannot do this properly with pliers. I used this one and it worked decently and is less than $25: h
  3. I sure do! I'd never crimped molex before, I found a nice crimper for about $20 on Amazon which got the job done nicely. Just don't use 600v 18awg wire like I did or you will not have a fun time crimping. Use 300v wire instead. analogboard<->motherboard: I have built this cable and the parts are definitely correct.

  4. I replaced the crystal today. The card seems to work perfectly now! I have never fixed anything electronic like this before. It took a while to narrow the problem down, but turned out to be well worth it. After replacing the capacitors in the motherboard, analog board, and PSU, all I have left is to fix the floppy drive and I will have a perfect SE/30!
  5. After building a new 14 pin molex cable to run the motherboard comfortably outside the computer, I did some experiments warming up the Ethernet card using pocket hand warmers. I determined that the crystal that is right next to the DP83901V chip needs to be slightly warmer than room temperature in order to start up. If I touch that crystal with my soldering iron set to the very lowest temperature for a few seconds before powering the cold machine on, everything works! Based on some notes in the datasheet for the DP83907 (I assume similar controller), I've ordered a replacement osci
  6. If I leave the computer on for a few hours, and then power cycle it, the card then seems to work. I've tested this twice now. Perhaps temperature related? Bad connection someplace?
  7. Correct. It won't even respond to arp requests. In fact, not a single packet is sent from the SE/30.
  8. On the RPI I did "ethtool -s eth0 speed 10 duplex half autoneg off". Doing this makes me lose auto mdix, so a crossover cable is required. I connected with a crossover cable to the rpi with the forced media settings and I get the same result.
  9. Greetings, This is my first post on this excellent forum. The content here was extremely helpful for me to recap my SE/30. "Mac Con for IISi SE/30. P/N 09-00005-00 REV. C2" Background I acquired an SE/30 with an Asante MacCon card installed on eBay a few months ago. I recapped the motherboard, power supply, and analog board as well as gave it a deep cleaning. I also removed the hard drive and floppy drive and connected the SCSI on it to the excellent RaSCSI board. All is up and working perfectly now except the network card. The first
