Newertech Maxpowr 200MHz 604e accelerator card - Mac Applications & Software

Greetings! I originally posted this on c.s.m.hardware.misc, but this group gets much more traffic.... One of my recent thrift store finds is a Newertech Maxpowr 200MHz 604e accelerator card, which I want to use in my 7500. There is a set of four dip switches that control the CPU and bus speed, but I cannot find a reference on how to set them. Trawling the web and Usenet only turns up settings for the Maxpowr G3 cards. Can anyone tell me what the dip switch settings represent? Many thanks! Dec -- Hey spambots! Harvest this! .!.. Unsolicited commercial email (uce) ...

    Yes, but that group is appropriate, while this one is for Mac OS
    discussions.

    Which is why I let that one sit for a week to see if I got any
    responses. The only suggestion I got was to check xlr8yourmac.com,
    which I had done. Since no more responses seemed forthcoming, I thought
    I'd try here. And, I might point out, that the word "system" in c.s.m.a
    could imply a hardware system (as in group of components) just as easily
    as software, and given the number of harware posts I've seen here, I
    think that interpretation is quite valid.

    Thanks for your help! ;-)

    Hi-
    I have the 233mhz 604e version. I too have been unable to get my hands on
    the manual for it.
    I never noticed any dip switches on mine but I never really looked closely at
    the card. I bought it used from someone who had it in an 8600. It's been in my
    8500, essentially the same as an 8600, for a while and works fine.
    Have you tried yours in the 7500 yet?

    Ron

    Ron,

    I have, and it seems to work well in Mac OS 8.6 with the switches set in
    the positions they were when I acquired it (not too surprising, since it
    was removed from a 7500). However, running under YellowDog Linux 3.0,
    the machine is extremely unstable -- often spontaneously rebooting after
    only 10 minutes or so. It seems better with the cache card removed.

    I suppose that I could determine what the settings mean by trial and
    error, but I would prefer to not have to do so, if for no other reason
    than minimising the risk of damage....

    Cheers!
