You didn't specify whether or not the card shows up in the TCP/IP control panel.

I wanna know the answer to this form.

I just installed an Apple PCI Ethernet Card to my Powerpc 6500. I opened Apple Menu/ TCP/IP / but my Connect via: Apple Talk (MacIP) is my only option. I don't know how to get it to connect via: Ethernet. Also my Configure options are only: Using MacIP Server and Manually.

I think it's due to my OS 7.5.5. Do I need to install a higher OS? I am thinking of buying the highest that my computer can take, 9.1.

IF not, what are my options and how can I Connect via Ethernet?

It should work fine with the OS version you have now. You'll need to install Apple Ethernet Drivers; if the computer didn't have an ethernet card when the system software was installed, then it wouldn't have installed the drivers.

Try installing this. That is the Apple Built-In Ethernet extension, it should give you access to any Apple ethernet card from that era. I actually wasn't even aware there was an Apple-branded PCI ethernet card. Download it, unstuff it, and drag the extension into your System Folder -> Extensions folder, and come back and tell us if that works.

I upgraded my OS from 7.5.5 to OS 9.1. I still did not get the "ethernet" pull down option. I also downloaded the .sit file you requested. I put the extenstion in my extension folder, restart it. It still did not show up the "ethernet" option. I did another OS installation (this time clean installment). When I went to TCP/IP, I recieved this alert:

"The previously selected connection, "Ethernet", is not available. The connection has been changed to "PPP"."

What is wrong? I think maybe my computer is not detecting the Apple Ethernet PCI card? And yes, there is such thing as a Apple Ethernet PCI card brand because I bought it. Smile
