With only one week to go, I decided to enter the RetroChallenge. The plan is to get all of my Ethernet-less Macs online without having to buy expensive hardware, and without using another computer. here is how I used to do it: Getting a Classic Mac online using a Mac OS X server. And here is what I want to try: 3com 5009 router. This is an high-end router that is readily available online for about $25 including shipping. It has 2 serial ports. The plan is to hook the Mac serial ports up to it and make the connection through PPP.
