    I have a old se fdhd and i want to get internet on this one. But since my pds is arleady used by my radius 68020, this means i don't have and cannot install any ethernet card. Can i use one of my two old generation computers as a router via localtalk?

    If someone has a solution for this, it would be great.

    Go find IPNetRouter. I use it with a Quadra 700 to provide TCP/IP via LocalTalk to my Macs that don't have Ethernet. It works great. LocalTalk isn't fast, but neither is your SE. ;)

    Farallon iPrint Adapter, and there were other alternatives, all from about 1998.

    Released as a kit to get brand new iMac G3's connected to old AppleTalk printers over their Ethernet port. So Ethernet in, AppleTalk / LocalTalk out.

    They come up on eBay every so often, sometimes bundled with an old Mac. I use mine to connect my SE to my dual G5 through a router. If I really wanted to access the internet on it, I could, but it is SO slow.
