M-Power 603e200 clone / Asante 10/100 PCI ethernet card / TCP/IP won't let me connect via ethernet
Posted on 2003-03-21
Someone gave me a M-Power 603e/200MHz macintosh clone. I figured since it has a built-in Zip drive and a floppy drive, what the heck, at the very least I could use it as a floppy transfer machine.
I went and bought an Asante 10/100 PCI ethernet card to put inside it, figuring I could connect it to the internet with my cable modem. I installed the latest driver software from Asante.
This clone is running OS 7.6.1. The Asante Ethernet Options control panel sees the card in installed in slot C1. But TCP/IP won't let me connect via ethernet, the "ethernet" option does not appear in the menu. I',m, not sure what to do about this, I've spent several hours fiddling around. I managed to upgrade Open Transport from 1.1.1 to 1.1.2. Perhaps I need to put the card in a different slot? Dunno! There's three PCI slots inside which connect to the board via a nubus slot. Help!?... Thanx!
