nicely done but the evolution company was never called "essential"
Well, ex-cuuuuse me!
I got carried away with my own cleverness and substituted the name of the keyboard for the name of the company.

So I spent 4 hours on this issue today and I am really not making any progress.
Actually, I think you did. To wit:
I picked up another Dual 1GHz Quicksilver machine locally to test with. It has the exact same issue (no network connection in OS9) as my main machine, even with a freshly formatted HD and a new install of 9.2.2. So I got out my 500MHz iBook G3 and tested again and it works just fine using ethernet and OS 9.2.2. I made doubly certain I was not on Airport. Amazing.

I noticed that the iBook has Open Transport 2.8.3 AND Open Transport ASLM Modules 2.8.3 instead of 2.8.1. I copied those files to a USB flash drive and updated the test QS machine (it had 2.8.0) with no help.
I wasn't there, so I'm deducing this from your reply (very thorough by the way - that's great!).

Try this on for size:
Your G3 works!
Another completely different Quicksilver does not work. Why?

* Is that fresh install be from the same source as the install(s) you've been using on the original Quicksilver? If so, that OS may contain corrupted files or simply have another necessary extension inactive.
You didn't mention "Apple Enet" that I said has to be active - is it?

I should have been clearer about the Open Transport stuff - 2.8.0 is probably OK - you should just have the latest revs you can find, so 2.8.1 is good - 2.8.3 is better but that's probably NOT the problem.

What you need to do now is compare the System Extensions on the working G3 line by line with the ones on a non-working G4.
Somewhere in there is one missing or corrupt or something and that issue is present in the 9.2.2 you're using for "fresh" installs.

………or not. Again, I wasn't there and this is just my best guesswork.  I DO know that you're close…really close.

Hi there,

I have a Power Mac 7600 that I've added a Sonnet Crescendo G3 350 card to. Is it possible to install 9.2.2 on this machine, or, what is the latest version I should stick to? I only have 9.0.0 installed right now.

Thanks!

Good luck. I gotta go to the bathroom…

Just when things were getting good... one wonders what gems that Gary would have bestowed only to gone forever because nature called :(

Wondering how this could be? I noticed my Airport Extreme Router is a couple of versions behind in firmware, but the iBook works, so not sure if I want to go down that rabbit hole since the firmware version I am on has been working perfectly for several years. I may dig out an old Digital Audio G4 I have to test later, but am not sure if the results will help shed any light on the issue anyway.

Stuck!

I will have to mull this over for a few days. Logic is failing me...

Turns out I didnt need the wood plank Diehard  ;D

I actually did this on a whim as I was installing an SSD in the Clamshell and had to basically take the whole computer apart anyway.

Everything fit back together nicely. I had some concern about the height of the ribbon cable mount on the Stealth card (that big black piece) but in the end, the computer closed just fine, no physical compromises or any obvious issues. I'm using it to sequence external samplers with the MIDI sequencing program M.

So far so good!

I've tested a Stealth port in my G4 Lamp, and PB Lombard as well. Both have physical issues.

I once thought about making a serial-based MIDI interface that fits in the Lombard drive bay and connects via a flat cable to the modem header, but I doubt it'll even happen.

USB to MIDI adopters don't work under OS 9?

Just in case, you can always find it here. I just put it on archive.org.

RESOLVED:

This must be installed first. I had taken note of this years ago and during the transition to the new drive it was missed.

Please find NVIDIA Drive Update 3.0v1.1.smi.bin attached, this allows the 20inch Cinema Display to work with a GeForce card at 1680x1050 resolution.

Hello

I don't come here too often but I am grateful for the forum and am hoping someone can help.

So I have a PowerMac Quicksilver 733MHz attached to a 20" Cinema Display https://everymac.com/monitors/apple/studio_cinema/specs/apple_cinema_display_20.html. The display's native resolution is 1680x1050.

The GPU card is a GeForce 2 MX.

The machine can boot into Mac OS 9.2.2 or Mac OS X 10.3.

Mac OS X automatically boots into a 1680 x 1050 resolution but Mac OS 9 can't do the same. As a work around I installed SwitchRes 2.5.3 which allowed for higher resolutions but I can't get 1680x1050.

So this is why I came here today?

Is there a solution?

I might be mistaken but before having replaced the old noisy drive with a new quite HD and installed just Mac OS 9, I think I use to get native resolution in 9 but now I am not certain.
