I installed OS 9.1 on my Beige G3, 300. All is fine except I can no longer select Ethernet in the appletalk control panel. I use that to copy files from my PB (which uses 9.1 fine). I've uninstalled and reinstalled the OS. Even when I reverted back to OS 9.0, I couldn't select ethernet either. I've trashed prefs, zapped PRAM, reset the swith on the logic board, rebooted with minimal extensions... I'm spent.

Has anyone had this problem or does anyone have any ideas? I'm fresh out.

Thanks for any assistance!!!!

Do you have all the correct ethernet extensions installed. The options that show up in the Appletalk control
panel only show the available options (e.g. printer, modem, ethernet) If you don't have ethernet extensions,
then it won't show up. Hope this helps.

yep, I've checked my extensions with those on my PB, and with those on my G3 at work. I can't find one that isn't in there. The 'ethernet' choice is still in the control panel...It just has an error when trying to use it. I can't figure out why, for the life of me.
