    Hello all,

    Today I happened to come across an old blue and white Power Mac G3 at a local thrift store, and I'm wondering how to connect it to the Internet. It has what looks like an Ethernet port on the back, but the cable won't fit. What do I need to connect it?

    Thanks!

    Don't know what the problem is, those have 10/100Mbps jacks on the back, it should fit. They may also have a built in modem so I guess be sure you are attempting to put it in the right spot. But the 10/100 is built right in those, right under the ADB port on this pic: http://www.kevinomura.com/macs/bwg3/bwg3rear.jpg

    Dear God... I wasn't putting it in the right jack. I must really be tired, because I would never miss something like that. Thank you for pointing out my idiocy, it is much appreciated. :D
