Hello dear Applefritters,
Some time ago, i bought an Asante network card for my SE/30 (running 7.5.5 and equipped with 16mb ram and a 10.1 GB harddrive (using a Acard 7720u scsi bridge)). I installed the nic and setup the drivers from the Asante driver disc that came with it.
When reading about the MAC having problems negotiating speed with modern routers, i also bought a 10Base-T hub from Ebay. When i start the mac, the lights on the hub (as well as downstream) indicate that there is some kind of connection. Looking at the daughter card on the backside of the mac, i can see one of them lighting up (the bottom one). The other light never comes on.
When i try the diagnostics tool supplied by asante, everything up until the nic transmission test work. The Transmission comes back with an error (telling me that the link does not work).
I run MacTCP version 2.0.6 and i have also tried OpenTransport. I have switched from appletalk to ethernet in the "control panel".
I was thinking that it perhaps was my 10base-t hub that was incompatible so i ordered (yesterday) a AUI transceiver to try that one as well. Don't know if this helps or not.
Any ideas or pointers how to perhaps get this to work?
