So, I couldn't get the DEC MCA ethernet card to work in this nice IBM
PS/2 machine I have. It only has a token ring card.
I decided that the thing to do was to set up a token ring network. I put
a fourth NIC (TR) in my router, spent $17 on cables, talked a friend of
mine into giving me a spare IBM 8228 MAU, and wired it up today.
After configuring the interfaces and downing and restarting the router
one, it works. Cool.
Why did I do this? I guess I can hook up the 6611 token ring router I
have if I can find a cable/adapter for the small 20-pin (?) token ring
connectors on the card. Anyone know anything about these small TR
connectors?? Like what they're called so I know what to search for if I
have to buy something on eBay??
Somehow I was unable to convey any of my excitement over having token
ring working to my wife... ;)
