The built-in Mini-DIN-8/9 serial ports of Pippin consoles were limited to LocalTalk networking speeds of up to 230.4 kbps. Pippin expansion docks could add a RJ45 network port that was compatible with the 10BASE-T ethernet standard, capable of speeds up to 10 Mbps. However, such docks are extremely rare and most Pippin users connected to the internet through modems that were included with the console.
