Question about Apple iMac G5 Desktop

Cant connect my G5 to the Router to get internet

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.

Thanks Jordan

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.

I think you will need to reconfigure the router.
You can access the Internet when you connect the computer to the modem. That means the modem is working fine.
Connect the modem to the Internet port on the router and computer to port 1 on the router. Press and hold the reset button on the rotuer for 30 seconds. Release the reset button and wait for 30 seconds. Power cycle the router and reconfigure it.
Follow this link to reconfigure the router.

Make sure that your computer is able to go online through the modem.
If your computer is not able to go online through the modem then you will need to call ISP first.
If your computer is able to go online through the modem

Ran the setup wizard for the d link di 514 but still cant connect to internet


Do you have Internet connection before you installed the Dlink router? Do you have cable or DSL? If you have DSL make sure you have the username and password from your Internet service provider because you need to enter those information when you run the set up wizard. You need to connect your computer to the LAN port of the router. Turn off computer and router, turn on router first then turn on the computer. Run the set up wizard again.

Can I connect my G5 Mac to an iMac and use the same Internet


yes, you ;could set up a network using the G5 as a server, but it would be better to get a network router on your internet connection and hook both computers up to that.
