Adding iMac to Win PC home network

  Technotiger 17:22 23 Dec 2006

Hi Guys,
My normal home network, Safecom Modem Router, PC to Lappie connected wirelessly, with networked printer. XP Home PS2.

Have today bought used iMacG3 OS9, Internet ready. Until today knew nothing about iMacs, or any other Macs, except the sort that keep you dry! Question is, can I attach iMac to spare rear port on Router in order to go on-line with it - or is there more to it than that, which is what I suspect.

Found out from another source - simple answer = yes!

Macs are fab - they just work, even with the slightly creaky OS9. Glad it was so easy!

Hi, and thanks. Though I have not done it yet, got to get a cable from local shop after Xmas. My partner phoned a Techie-with-shop who is a friend of hers, he said it was all I needed.
I only paid £40 for it, and it is in perfect condition, even though I know it is an oldie.

Merry Christmas
