Hey guys, just got a Mac 128KB with the Plus upgrade kit and external harddrive.

Would be fun to get hooked up to the Net. What is the easiest way. SCSI to ethernet or LocalTalk to ethernet adapter, and will I need drivers for those adapters?

And another question. Got another 512KB with the wobbly display issue. Almost sure it can be fixed wit a new solder around the joints on the yoke connector J1. Have actually never done any soldering before. How do you remove old solder? A special tool or?

SCSI to Ethernet is easiest - no other device needed. (LocalTalk to Ethernet still requires a machine to act as AppleTalk-to-TCP/IP bridge.)

Yes, you'll need drivers.

you could look for a GatorBox (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GatorBox)...
