The ethernet adapter I got today came with an AAIU ethernet card, which I have absolutely no use for at all. If anyone wants it, PM me.<br><br>Great wits are sure to madness near allied.--John Dryden, "Absalom and Achitophel"

I have an AAUI ethernet adapter that I never used. Would make a nice Xmas present for someone, eh? Perhaps for that someone special you just don't really like at all? Your Mac bashing Windows colleague at work?<br><br><br><br>
When Apple switched from NuBus to PCI, then also switched to 10BaseT ethernet (the RJ-45 connector we have today). Before that thin-coax was popular so Apple chose to use the AAUI port for their built-in ethernet cards. You needed an adapter for whatever standard connector you needed.<br><br>
