Getting a no-ethernet 5300 onto the 'Net - Mac Networking

Right. I've got a working 5300 here that my bedridden housemate would like to use (its the only functional lappy in the house) to get onto the net. Our current LAN is all cat5. Would setting up an old Quadra 700 with Apple IP Gateway (which I have in the archives) function as an ethernet <-> LocalTalk bridge? Its a pro-tem measure, I don't want to (not that we've got the cash) buy any extra hardware. Or would an ancient copy of icom Internet Gateway do a better job, seeing as it only has to shift one machine to ethernet ...

    Default Getting a no-ethernet 5300 onto the 'Net

    Right. I've got a working 5300 here that my bedridden housemate would
    like to use (its the only functional lappy in the house) to get onto the
    net.

    Our current LAN is all cat5.

    Would setting up an old Quadra 700 with Apple IP Gateway (which I have
    in the archives) function as an ethernet <-> LocalTalk bridge? Its a
    pro-tem measure, I don't want to (not that we've got the cash) buy any
    extra hardware.

    Or would an ancient copy of icom Internet Gateway do a better job,
    seeing as it only has to shift one machine to ethernet (where our
    dedicated router can look after such things).

    (Please, no suggestions of using IPNetRouter -- it is overly complex and
    couter-intuitive, every time I've tried to use it and follow the
    instructions in the manual, I've never got it going.)

    Apple IP Gateway might work, I don't know any details about it so I
    can't be sure.
     

    This would do. 

    It's always been straight forward for me.



    The problem you are likely to encounter is that your existing Internet
    router may not work with another router. The ones I have don't. You
    can't set up a second subnet (for MacIP). What I ended up doing for
    just this purpose (well a PB2300c via LocalTalk) was to setup
    IPNetRouter to use Network Address Translation (NAT) on the existing
    LAN. This then connects to the Internet via the hardware router also
    using NAT. A double NAT if you will.

    Internet Gateway can do this, I don't know if Apple IP Gateway will.

    The other way to do this is to have a router that bridges IP addresses
    from one subnet to another but this gets more complicated.

    When I first got a PB 5300 I connected it to the network with an
    Ethernet card I picked up for $15 or so. It couldn't hurt to look
    around and see what is available. The card I got, BTW, is a Kingston.
