I have a LaserWriter 4/600, which I purchased back in '92 or '93, I think. It works perfectly. However, it requires a SCSI connection with the Ethernet port. When I bought a new computer in the mid-90's, a Mac G3, which I still have, I was advised that I could still use the laser by using an Asante switch. I have had that switch since that time, too, and it still works perfectly.
My problem came along when I added cable internet, and then dsl internet when I dropped the cable. My dsl modem needs to be connected to the ethernet port. So, I bought a router which would allow my new G5 (at that time) to use the internet and my G3 to use the laser writer.
I would like to move the G3 to a different room and to plug the laser straight into the Ethernet connection of the G3. No matter what I turn on and off in the preferences and to reconfigure the G3 to use the printer, it will not work unless I use it through the router. Evidently I have set up some kind of network for the printer to be used through the router, and I can't figure out how to undo that.
Is there anyone who can get me back to the state where the printer is devoted to the G3. The G3 is running 10.4.
