I have an LC475 with ethernet card and a G3 Desktop (original G3) with built in ethernet. I have an ethernet crossover cable. They are connected. The LC475 appears to be ready to receive a network connection (ie. all settings appear to be correct). The LC475 is running 7.6.1. I can't for the life of me get my G3 to recognize its built in ethernet card, and hence, cannot network my two computers. What do I need to do?
Second Question, Once I'm up and running, how do I connect to the internet with my G3 so that the LC475 can browse the net? I am using Apple Remote Access to connect to the internet through a dial-up connection.
Third Question: When I can afford it, I will upgrade to an ADSL connection, I know I will need to get a hub so I can still network my computers as the ADSL connection uses the ethernet port on either computer. How do I achieve a setup that will allow me to use both computers on the internet and still be networked to each other while maintaining a high degree of security?
More points may be awarded if and when all three questions are answered.
