Hello everyone!

I hope this is the right place to post this, if not so then I'll remove the post.

Some weeks ago I acquired on eBay a PDS network card for my SE/30: it's a CNET Technology CN470E card.

Just today I found some time to install it, and TattleTech indeed confirmed some stats about this card:

Now, as I have never used network cards before, I would like to know if some you could help me in configuring it and try surfing the web/share files/email, etc.

There is an older topic on the forum about this card (https://68kmla.org/forums/index.php?/topic/55066-anyone-able-to-identify-this-se30-network-card/&tab=comments#comment-584140), but it wasn't completely solved and I hope the drivers included with system 7 are good enough.

I have also read the pinned guide to connect the SE/30 to the web, but it confused me quite a bit.

I also have lots of (probably) unnecessary things in my system folder. Maybe some of you could tell me if I can delete some control panels/extensions and replace them with more efficient ones.

I know it's a real mess, but somehow I feel most of those things are not needed for what I intend to do.

 

I don't have many ways to transfer files to the SE/30: I only have a SCSI Zip drive and a USB Zip drive for my modern PC and Mac.

Also: do I need a particular router? A particular Ethernet cable? I'm totally new about this.

Thanks a lot!

 

P.S. what does the little lever (on the right side of the card) do?
