Maps of Parallel Americas: Republik van Nieuw Nederland

If you’ve ever wondered what New York would be like if it remained a Dutch colony until the late 1700s?

I’m thankful we finally have an answer.

“New Netherland achieved independence in 1798, after the ‘old’ Netherlands were overrun by the French. Philip Schuyler, the last Director-General of the colony, became the first Prime Minister of the independent Republic. Influential successors were PMs Maarten van Buren (1820-1856)…”

  1. Hi, from Baltimore, Maryland. I have a Linksys Router model BEFW11S4 that I used when I had a PC. I followed your instructions on connecting this router to a MAC.

    I was able to get to the Linksys Home page but no further.

    I entered: Static IP:192.168.1.5
    Subnet mask: 255.255.255.0
    Router settings: 192.168.1.1

    I entered Admin as the password however, I could not move to other internet pages.

    I am using an IMAC running OSX 4.11 with an Intel 2.16 MHz 2 duo with 1GB MHz DDR2 SDRAM.

    I need assistance as the APPLE techs I spoke to did not have training on LINKSYS Routers.
