Go to the apple menu then down to about this mac from here it will tell you the basic information for your G4 and if you need further information click on more information and it will open system profiler and give you the full information for your G4. Hope this helps.
What message do you get? does it say anything like "Not airport card found" or something similar.
A couple of things to check. First make sue that the card itself is fully home in the socket.
Second, make sure that the arial lead is properly connected. It is really easy to think that the arial is connected when it isn't. The plug is a very close fit. it should click into place and you should not be able to get a finger-nail between the plug body and the card - if you can it's not connected.
Failing that, the card may well be faulty - sometimes happens with eBay.
You don't need the admin password to restore a Mac from its installation discs. Insert the disc, then hold down the C key as you are starting up, to boot from the disc instead of the hard drive. Continue with complete restoration of the original machine contents.
That means you have to reset the prm.Since you know the inside of the computer a little bit,remove the power open it again and carefully remove the battery.Press and hold that button(PRM) down for about ten seconds you know what this will do,yes it will reset the logicboard.Reinsert the battery put the computer back together and try again.
Well it is time consuming as you will have to start from the botom of the computer and work your way up.First put the lcd and neck between your legs the base on your knees.On the base i believe there are about six torq or phillips screws turn to disengage the base,there are a few cables attached to the base which you will have to remove,one ground screw as well.Once these are disengaged you can put the base aside.LOOKING in the base everything is layered you must remember how they are oriented remove them one by one.Eventually you will see the cables for the lcd and screws which secures the base of the lcd shaft to the base of the computer.Remember how they are oriented as this is crutial when replacing the base as it should fit without pinching any wires.
Hi Branko Rather than forking money out for a battery. There are a couple of things I really need to know first. Have you changed anything on the machine recently? What OS are you running. How much memory (ram) Size of hard drive.
As you are running quite an old mac these details are important to identify the problem.
