if you have to you can always install a gigabit ethernet PCI card
although that would cost an expansion slot
but; you already said the built-in nic works fine in OSX so that is a waste;
(oops sorry i was thinking u were using an MDD, i see now its a powerbook! lol

if it was me, i would say something about your install is screwed up;
what source did u use to install os9?

any os9 powerbook users able to help this guy out?

The only source for this installation I've used is the one on this site

This machine does not support OS9 ordinarily, so some things may not work.

How far can you ping?
Machine itself? Router LAN side? Router WAN side?

I use OTTool for pinging.

Whilst the machine doesn't support OS9, there's a thread with proven success on this exact model which also shows network functionality.
Using that tool, a traditional traceroute to google.com ends with the error "Couldn't resolve address."
A ping pulls up the same error, never getting past the "Querying DNS" stage

I had this problem with my PB1400 which will only communicate with the router if it's plugged into an Ethernet over power/'Powerline Adapter'. I don't have a great understanding of networking but for some reason it can't communicate with my modern Fibre router, and only works through this older tech which then handles the modern Ethernet standards?

I also set a static IP address and it works great, haven't had a problem since.

The Fibre router conundrum might be the possible cause, save for the fact I'm running everything in a closed network that then bridges over to the main Router. I'll definitely try the Ethernet Over Power solution when I have time to buy one - even though I may have my doubts, I've got nothing to lose giving it a shot. Setting the static I.P address didn't really do anything...

This is a known problem.

There was a partial solution for "no internet" posted here: http://macos9lives.com/smforum/index.php/topic,3912.msg26672.html#msg26672

If you haven't read that entire thread, you should.

I unfortunately have and followed everything I could on it.

You actually have TWO problems:

1) HFS+ and older AFP versions are not compatible; and even if they were;
2) The Apple File System) on your Mojave-running Mini cannot be seen / read by earlier HFS-running systems.

Is it just me or does it start to seem like every time we kinda "settle down" into a groove where everything's more or less compatible and working, Apple does something radical to obsolete the entire working environment?

Just kidding - I already know the answer to that.

There are two ways to bridge the AFP issue: a dedicated server or an OSX-running machine in between.
Personally, I just took one of my many, many (they multiply by themselves when you put them in a closet, you know) G4 laptops running 10.5.8 to serve as a bridge. I just "bounce" files off of it in either direction.
There is a lot of info here on the Forum about using Fetch and similar and /or using NAS schemes to serve files back and forth (macstuff has the skinny on that) so you CAN find a way that works for you - and get proficient using our 18th-century search tool also…
You simply need to think about what you really need and pick the best option.

The AFS issue however, is a different animal. It only "works" in one direction. The Mojave system can "see" everything "below" it so you can get from and put to your OSX or OS9 systems FROM the Mojave Mini. The AFS formatting is automatically removed by Mojave when you send a file. However, you can only "see" what's on that "new" Mini from something running High Sierra or better. I don't yet know of a workaround for that. It would be nice if an enterprising 3rd party could come up with some kind of "AFS translator" or similar to help out there.

I somehow doubt that Apple would be very enthusiastic about that however…
