I am writing this from a Performa 6214CD. It has never had any hardware upgrades. The ethernet performance on it is abhorrent. I can run IE, but even the web server in our building (all 10Mbps from here to there) is excruciatingly slow. Another anomaly - I work in on a college campus with several zones, and sometimes the chooser shows them, sometimes it doesn't. I'm of the opinion that the ethernet is so slow, it's timing out when trying to find out the zones, but I'm willing to be proved wrong. My objective here is to connect to our Netware (4.10) server, preferably without loading IPX (we have several Macs that connect with AppleTalk over Ethernet).
As troubleshooting, I've connected with another cable that was known to work OK at high transfer speeds (using a PC). Also, according to http://www.mactimes.com/lowend/road/x200.shtml
, I've installed a SCSI terminator on the external port, but with no results. Am I just hosed?
