Mac query

My daughter has bought a Mackintosh Power PC G3 from her place of work, who once sold wash their hands of them, understandably.
However on the back there is a telephone type socket which we assumed would be a modem, but it fails to work as such.
Any ideas as to what it could be???

I take it that I can put an internal modem in an expansion slot ans do it that way, without causing problems.

"telephone type socket" - if not a modem socket, then a Network port - they can be fairly similar.

Do you have any manual for the machine, or can you get one from apple.com?

I have not used a Mac since MacOS 7.5 and cannot remember it very well, but I am sure that there is some way of listing the hardware on the machine. Is there anything to tell you that there is a modem connected?

No manual, but as you say probably network, but new to me as I am a novice on this.

I did a search on the net last night for the Power G3 but take it that it has now been replaced by G4 and G5, but couldn't find any info to help me.

No idea as not a Mac user and my daughter has no idea on how to check either.

It may be a Firewire socket as Mac's come with them as standard fixings now.

click here and pick the model to see the spec's.

Thanks for that info, I think the best option is to fit a modem card.
