Hello
with a mac performa 6116,
I can't figure out what kind of ethernet
port it has and what what to plug into it.
THe performa manual doesnt tell me.
Is there a mac web site with technical
info on that? And I'd also like to upgrade
my logic board or cpu from the 601/60 mhz.
Its too slow. And the darn thing takes forever
to load a file into an app. and forever to draw to
the screen.  How can i upgrade its video memory?
Even though it can only have a max of 1meg of video ram
or so the manual says.
is there a hack to get around the logic boards limitations?
And I added 256k of cache
but I cannot tell any performance difference!
where can I find some benchmark utility
that tells me how my mac is doing?
and it has an expansion slot that requires a
nubus adapter, and a nubus card must be only 7 inches
long. but where can I find info about all the nubus cards
available? I'd like to build my own dual processor
mac from scratch.
Where can I find all the components?
Thanks!

You should see something like an RJ-45 jack (like a telephone jack on steroids), or some weird little slotted thing about an 1/8' wide by 1/2" long (an AAU something or other). If all you see are a telephone jack, a modem port and a printer port, you aren't Ethernet ready.

You failed to mention the amount of RAM on your machine. I believe the Performa 6116 has 8MB soldered onto the motherboard and 2 slots available for addition RAM. If you're running with only 8MB, and using System 7.5.x,you have very few resources left for applications since System 7.5.x will gobble up most of the available RAM. If that is the case, additional RAM will give you the most cost effective performance increase.

Call Apple at 1(800)SOS-APPLE for addition techinical info on expansion capabilities of the Performa 6116.
