Anyone know of cheap solutions to get an LCIII ethernet ready? A few years ago I checked out macresque and others looking for cards, but they were more expensive than the box. I'm looking for used.

You should email some of the places you checked out, and tell them you're looking for used and they should be able to fix you up cheaply.

Otherwise, you can get one on ebay for about $10 or so. Be sure to get either an asante or get a card with a driver disk.

Shop smart, shop S-Mart! You got that!!?!!
He can be fixed -- you can't.

I dont know about ethernet specific cards, but there is a PrestoPPC that will add ethernet, ram, and give it a 60 MHz PPC CPU. It is about $250, but if you use your LCIII all the time it is a great speed boost. I think it is made by sonet, but im not sure. good luck.

I picked one up a ways back....I can't recall price (about $25 CDN that would be $10 USD).
