    Is there a ethernet card available for a Performa 550 and Performa 630CD? I have a 10/100 wired network, I still turn these on and use them for the kids and older games. I would like to have them networked with my other Macs. My setup is quite simple:
    cable modem>router/switch>eMac, G3/B/W and 8500/120.
    I am working on giving life to another 8500/120 right now. I have a 10/100 card for it and an old Apple OEM HD 1GB (IBM DPES-31080).

    I know that you can network the Performa 630. You need a flat nubus card... It wont opererate at speeds higher than 10mpbs though....

    here are some examples

    you could probally get them cheaper on ebay...

    Describing them as "flat nubus cards" would be inaccurate.
