TCP/IP almost working - Solved!

  1. Well I had tried everything else, so today I got really desperate.

    I backed up (twice), archive-and-install Panther, ran the 10.3.5 Combo
    updater, emptied the caches using Panther Cache Cleaner. No Joy.

    I went into Open Firmware and reset-nvram, then reset-all.
    then I want into single-user mode and ran /sbin/fsck.
    Then I reset the PRAM three chimes worth. Still didn't work.

    Finally I shut down everything, pulled the Mac-to-router cable out,
    put in a new, shorter cable using another router port, rebooted the
    router and the DSL modem, and fired up my Mac. Everything is working now.
    I believe it was a bad cable or a faulty connection.

    Just thought you guys oughta now.

    Happy for you. Networking's like that ... when it doesn't work, it's
    very frustrating. And when it's working, it's invisible.
