This machine has an ethernet port of format AAUI-15. You need an adaptor to standard ethernet ouput. Look here on ebay

http://computers.shop.ebay.com.....acat=58058

From there, I think that all information is on this site.

I am assuming that you have a local area network connected to the net now.

Basically

1. Chooser ->Turn Appletalk on

2. Control Panels -> Appletalk-> Out via Ethernet

3. Control Panels -> TCP/IP -> Out via Ethernet use DHCP to your router

If I have not missed anything, you should now be able to fire up a browser and go.

I am sure that if I missed anything someone will chime in here.

try:

http://modems.globalvillage.co.....ronze.html

for a software download for this modem.

I think then you have to go back through the control panels redirecting everything to the modem in whatever way it's software dictates.

I have no idea. I do know that you are far better off to go via ethernet to your router on your LAN if at all possible. If you do have to go the modem route search out the text browser "Wannabe". No security but it will plow through anything very quickly and then allow you to download graphics separately. For a page you want to see find it with wannbe and then past the URL into your browser. No bookmark functions on this browser though.
