AAUI to 10BaseT and 10Base2 Ethernet Transceiver

The AAUI Ethernet tranceiver is a Ethernet network interface card for all Macintosh models with AAUI connection.
   It combines two common types of Ethernet cabling: an RJ45 connector for shielded twisted-pair cabling (10BaseT) and a BNC coax connector for "thin" Ethernet connection (10Base2).


Ethernet Adapter Benefits:
CheckmarkConforms to the Ethernet IEEE802.3 standard
CheckmarkAutomatic adapter configuration
CheckmarkAuto detection of RJ45 or BNC connection
CheckmarkProvides 4 diagnostic LEDs to monitor network traffic

The AAUI connection: Some Mac models have an AAUI slot for expansion. The 10BaseT and 10Base2 Ethernet transceiver allows these Mac models to easily connect to an Ethernet network.

System Requirements: See Mac model list above.

Installation: Plug the AAUI connector into the AAUI Ethernet port at the back of your Mac. Connect the Ethernet tranceiver to the network.
    For 10Base2 (Thinnet) attach the provided BNC T-connector into the BNC post. Connect the 10Base2 coaxial network cable to each side of the T-connector.
   For 10BaseT (twisted pair cable) plug one end of the unshielded twisted pair (UTP) cable into the tranceivers' RJ 45 phone jack and plug the other end into a suitable port of a 10-BaseT hub.

Tool Requirements: None.

Time Requirement: About 5 minutes.

MicroMac Delivers: 10Base2 and 10BaseT Ethernet transceiver, BNC T-connector, illustrated Installation Sheet. Tranceiver manufactured by Macsense.
