I need to find a modem for an older machine!

Ok, I donated my old PowerComputing PowerTowerPro machine (with a G3 upgrade card) to my parents to get them up to speed with the rest of the world. But in my last move (2+ years ago) I got rid of the 56k modem, thinking I would never need it again since I've gone to a wireless network and cable modem (it was last connected view the built in rj45 network connection). And my parents aren't going to jump in and do DSL or a Cable modem right away.

So, I need it now, and its an ADB connector or what ever the old Macs used (preUSB as well). Does anyone know where I can find one? Even a PCI card would work, but I don't know what's compatible these days. It is running OS9.1 and I can probably upgrade it to 9.2.1.

Thanks,

D

Gone but not forgotten.
Actually, you should be able to use pretty much any serial port modem for a PC with a Mac serial cable. Zoom, and its subsidiary, Global Village were the last groups to make modems specifically for Macintosh. Belkin should still sell the cables.

If that doesn't work, I'll think about parting with the Global village v.90. :)

I also have a Global Village v.90 that I can part with if you will pay shipping.

I might even have two...

I seem to have a problem with holding on to things. :rolleyes:

You guys are fantastic! - I'll pay for the shipping on both, this way if one of them doesn't work, I have a backup.

Email me and we'll figure out the details - woohoo!!!
