So to get a little retro but I seem to be reverting back to my old machines.<br>I've got the PB 1400 up and going with OS 8.6, an Orinoco Silver card and the relevant software. In the Orinoco control panel the card shows as being connected with a fair signal, the corect router and encryption.<br>What I can't get it to do is connect when I open up a browser... 'failed' says the popup. I've tried IE 4 and 5, iCab and Netscape. I've furtled about with TCP/IP setting both manually and with auto DHCP server but to no avail.<br>Help folks... come on Lori, you always sort me out.<br>Andy<br><br>

Sorry, can't help you on that one. Retro? Geesh! More like stone and chisel! <br>I actually have one of those around that I really need to harvest some files from via Zip disks. My daughter used it for a while and has some early pictures of my granddaughter on it. Luckily, my G4 still has a functioning Zip drive and the 1400 has the swappable ZIP drive. Nice little machine, but 8.6 sure taxes it to the limit both in RAM and HD space.<br><br><br>
I have the same Silver card. If I remember, it can only handle the 64 bit encryption and not 128. However, since you can connect to the router, it may be something else. I have not tried my old PB1400 since my old router failed and my new one is set at 128.<br><br>_______<br>
