    modem for an old mac
    can anyone recommend a pci modem for my power pc 6500/250?
    or possibly some sort of adapter for the internal modem?
    thanks

    I don't know of PCI modems for this model but the 6400 Zone has some info about using the internal 56k modems from other models in the 6400 or 6500 at: http://www.zone6400.com/geomodem.htm...internal_modem. Unfortunately, this info is dated and it may be difficult to find the modems. Personally, I use a Global Village 56k external (serial) modem that works reliably. I've also used a cheap PCI ethernet card to connect to a cable or ADSL modem without problems.

    Just get an external serial modem from ebay. I got one for a couple dollars a few months back. Global Village made nice mac serial modems, but lots of others will work too.
