      Current network setup:

      * MacBook connected to neighbor's wireless network over the distance of a block or so.
      * Internet sharing turned on on the MacBook so the incoming connection's shared via Ethernet
      * Ethernet cable running from the MacBook to a switch
      * Switch powers desktop, other desktop, laser printer, and Xbox.
      * Faster download and upload this way than with home connection, and decent ping.
      * ???
      * Profit!

      Got a new router (D-Link DIR-632) to replace the old one (Linksys BEFSR81), since I was having intermittent connection problems and figured it was the router rather than the DSL modem. Spent almost two hours trying to set it up, to no avail, despite cloning the MAC address of the main computer and manually inputting the MAC address written on the old router's label. Finally discovered that the actual MAC address of the old router was exactly the same as the one written on it, except there was a "B" instead of an "A" as the last character. Go figure the MAC address on the label was misprinted...

      Problem: get data off old computers in the basement so I can replace them with slightly less-old ones.

      My family seems to collect old Macs - my dad's a pack-rat and we now have three classic Macs gathering dust in the basement. One of them's a Performa 475 (late 1993 - 25MHz, 160MB hard drive, System 7.1), one's an LC III (early 1993, basically identical to the Performa but running System 7.5), and one's a PowerMac 7200 (mid 1995 - 90MHz, 500mb hard drive, and miraculously managing to run OS 9.1). All three computers have data worth saving (simply for record-keeping as most of it hasn't been updated in years), but there's a problem: only the 7200 has an Ethernet port, and we don't own a SCSI CD burner (and some of the files are too big for floppies). My goal was simple - get all the data off the two older machines and onto the 7200 so I could copy it over the network to our G4 tower and replace the three computers in the basement with G3 iMacs (400MHz and 600MHz, both running Tiger, and "good enough" for basic productivity, gaming, and web browsing).

      Step 1, attempt 1:

      We have a 9GB SCSI external which is the 7200's boot drive. I was going to hook the external up to each machine and copy stuff to it, and then return it to the 7200 to copy things over the network. Unfortunately, the two older machines are running System 7, which doesn't support drives larger than 2GB, and I have no means to partition the external to make it have a 2GB partition, so that option was out.

      Step 1, attempt 2:

      Open up all three machines and transplant the older hard drives into the 7200 (which required removing the CD-ROM drive). Once done with that I could just copy things to the external and then over the network, and I could essentially get rid of the older machines. This worked... sort of. The nice thing about SCSI drives is there are no jumpers to set, but of course that leaves the configuration and recognition of drives largely up to the computer. I ended up putting a hard drive in where the CD-ROM drive was supposed to be, which caused the computer to freak out and it refused to boot past a blank screen until I replaced the CD-ROM drive. Ended up copying stuff off the old drives one at a time - power off, open case, pop in new drive, power up, copy files, rinse and repeat.

      Step 2:

      Now that I had all the data from all three drives onto the external, I needed to get it onto a newer computer. None of our other computers have SCSI ports (well, our G4 tower does, but it's a newer type of SCSI port and I didn't have an adapter on-hand), so I had to copy files over the network (the 7200 has a 10-BaseT Ethernet port, thank $deity). Was originally going to use my MacBook, but I hit a brick wall there - the laptop's running Snow Leopard, and Apple dropped support for AppleTalk networking in that version. AppleTalk is the file-sharing protocol OS 9 and earlier uses, so I ended up having to use the G4 tower, which is running Tiger.

      So far, everything's working fine... but it's going to take 9 hours to transfer 1.95 gigs and then I'll still have another 500 megs to copy after that.

      I'm such a nerd.
