auto-start ethernet adapter on Mac 5400/180 - Mac Networking

Here is an "old Mac" question from a Unix/PC guy: I've aquired a Mac 5400/160. I see that the ethernet adapter on this one does not fire up until it is needed -- eg, until you start a web-browser. For complex reasons, I'd like its ethernet to light up as soon as the Mac is turned on. How do I tell it to do this? Is there a firmware setting or a jumper or something? Thanks in advance! -- John K j . k i m b a l l AT m c h s i . c o m...

    Default auto-start ethernet adapter on Mac 5400/180

    Here is an "old Mac" question from a Unix/PC guy:

    I've aquired a Mac 5400/160. I see that the ethernet
    adapter on this one does not fire up until it is
    needed -- eg, until you start a web-browser. For
    complex reasons, I'd like its ethernet to light up
    as soon as the Mac is turned on. How do I tell it
    to do this? Is there a firmware setting or a
    jumper or something?

    Thanks in advance!

    You don't say what version of the OS you're using, but my guess is that
    OpenTransport (control panel) is set to load when needed, rather than
    stay loaded all the time.

    I think Apple used the name OpenTransport for its networking technology
    in general only. Never in the UI. The name of the control panel is
    "TCP/IP" and the "load only when needed" option might be hidden if the
    control panel's "user mode" is set to "basic" (which is the default I
    think) - can be changed from menubar somewhere.
