There's some reasons that approach doesn't work, per IBM's protocol.

Hi,

You could try finding an "ethernet to token ring" translating bridge, =
though
I am not aware of the budget will need - or if you'll find one anyways.

Just a thought,

Sorry to jump in on this one so late but here is my 2 cents on this one:

Madge cards were all the rage back in 1996 thru 1999. I was IT Mgr for a
financial services company which ran token ring....ring in-ring out and =
pass
the MAU-e-wau-e pipe please. Back then, Madge cards ran $300 or more.
These days you can buy a 1000mbs ethernet card for $5. So I vote for
swapping out the NIC and get on with life.
