Question about Apple iMac G5 Desktop
So i have the router and d link all set up as they should be. We have one computer connected to the router already and the internet works flawlessly.
Now the problem is that im trying to connect another G5 to the router with an Ethernet cable. To my understanding if i connect the ethernet cable into the router and then into my Ethernet port on my computer that i should be able to get internet immediately. This unfortunately isnt the case and i was wondering how to connect 2 macs to the router, in order to acess the internet. hope you can help.
Two things to consider. There are two different types of Ethernet cables out there. Perhaps you have a one way cable for the second one. To test this, unhook the working cable from the mac that gets internet and then hook that one up to the one that doesn't get it. See if it sees the network after a minute. The other issue might be in the Operating System. You might need to make sure that they are both up to date with all of the latest updates installed. (I know, hard to do with out an internet hook up.)
Lastly, make sure you are plugging in the cable to the right place on the back of the router. Seems silly, but some of the best have accidentally put it into a link plug to connect several routers rather than an actual Ethernet plug.
