LC-PDS 10BaseT and 10Base2 Ethernet Card

The LC-PDS Ethernet Adapter is a Ethernet network interface card for all Macintosh models with LC PDS slot.
   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
CheckmarkWorks with Apple System software, no software installation required
CheckmarkAutomatic adapter configuration
CheckmarkAuto detection on RJ45 or BNC connection
CheckmarkProvides 2 LEDs to monitor network traffic and link integrity
CheckmarkData prefetch function is built-in to enhance network performance

The LC-PDS slot: Some Mac models have a LC-PDS slot for expansion. The LC-PDS 10BaseT and 10Base2 Ethernet adapter allows these Mac Models to easily connect to an Ethernet network.
   Software driver support for AppleShare, Novell Netware for Mac, TCP/IP, A/UX, fully compatible with Ethernet Phase 1&2.

System Requirements: See Mac model list above. System 7.1.2 or above

Installation: Insert the Ethernet Adapter into an LC-PDS slot of your Macintosh. Connect the adapter using one of the two available network connections (RJ45 or BNC). Re-configure the AppleTalk Control Panel.

Tool Requirements: None. However you may want to use an antistatic grounding strap (available at most computer hardware stores).

Time Requirement: About 20 minutes.

MicroMac Delivers: LC-PDS Ethernet board, BNC T-connector, illustrated installation manual. Adapter board manufactured by Macsense.
