The newer Macintoshes, capable of operating efficiently on an Ethernet network, will typically have "Ethernet built-in." This is the equivalent of an integrated NIC on PCs. Figures 5a, 5b and 5c show examples of several different Macintosh configurations.

Please note: Older Macintoshes that were designed to be networked using LocalTalk technology require a transceiver which connects to the AAUI port and functions as an Ethernet adapter. This type of Macintosh configuration is neither recommended nor supported by SFA networking staff.
