Question about Apple iMac G5 Desktop
My Imac used to access the internet via ethernet cable from an air port extreme. Now it doesn't see the network. The airport extreme works because our laptops still access wirelessly. Can the ethernet port just fail? other ideas?
Thanks in advance.
Please check the ip configuration using system preferences in network option if its set to automatic or manual if automatic check the cable betwin your system and the network hub switch or wall socket is fine try also using another cable ...
if the status in your left hand side shows green that means cable is fine if have and ip address and is set to manual please check with your network administrator or it guys to check for proper ip address and gateway address..
there is like very rare chance for the network card in the system to go faulty afyter its mac
thanks and regards

Connecting the Devices Together

Checking the Router's LEDs
After connecting the devices together, check the lights on the front panel of the router. Ensure that the Internet light, as well as numbered light corresponding to the Ethernet port where the computer is connected, is lit. For further instructions, click here.
Setting Up a Linksys Router for Cable Internet Connection
Access the router's web-based setup page. For instructions, click here.

On the Setup tab, click the MAC Address Clone sub-tab.
Select Enabled then click Clone My PC's MAC.
Click Save Settings.
Click the Status tab.
Check the Internet IP Address. If the Internet IP Address has numbers, this means the router has been properly configured. You should now be able to access the Internet. If you're still unable to access the Internet, powercycle the modem, the router and then restart the computer.
NOTE: If the IP address is still 0.0.0.0, click IP Address Release then, click IP Address Renew. If this does not change the IP Address, powercycle the modem, the router and then restart the computer.
