My beige G3 is having a problem connecting to other computers in the network. When I open chooser and then click on another computer, the G3 locks up. The ethernet card seems to be working because A) I can still connect to the web using my CuteFTP and B) other computers on the network can still connect to me.

Thanks for you help.

This is an older mac. They were actually referred to by color, because the "blue and white" G3 was a later version of the G3 and very different.

Really? Because I've been networking mine for 8 years and this is the first time I've ever had a problem. I find them much easier to network than PCs. But thanks for your constructive input. I'm so glad I found this useful forum to get assistance with my problem!!

Just want to make sure, the machine having problems does have Appletalk installed. I know you have probably already checked that considering you have been using it for 8 years. I apologize for my lack of knowledge of Mac. I know they use Appletalk for communicating between each other so I'm guessing that the problem lies somewhere there. Again I'm sorry I couldn't be more helpful.

Thanks for the reply. Yes, I've checked the Appletalk settings. I even tried switching Appletalk to something other than ethernet and then changing it back to get the system to reset, and that didn't help either.

Man, I wish I knew more about MAC. I have been trying to get my hands on one for years so I would have one to test, practice, etc. on, no luck.
