SOURCE: Apple Ibook G3 connect internet through Ethernet??

For Linzie:
To connect to Internet with cable:
1. Turn on your computer.
2. From the Apple Menu, select System Preferences, and select the Network icon. Click on the Built-in Ethernet connection, and then click Configure.
3. The Show drop-down menu should be set to Built-in Ethernet.
4. Click on the TCP/IP tab.

  • The Configure: pop-up menu should be set to Using DHCP
  • The DHCP Client ID should be left blank
  • Search Domains should be left blank
  • DNS Servers should be left blank
  • All other fields will be filled in automatically by the DHCP Server. Click Apply Now when you are done.
  • You should note the Ethernet Address for future reference. To do so, click on the Ethernet tab, and then write down the Ethernet ID. You may need this if it is not filled in automatically when you register your computer.
  • Close the Network preference pane.
  • You should be able to get online with Safari.

SOURCE: apple ibook clamshell g3 m2453

the most common one is the yo-yo adapter which came with the ibook,it's a silver disk with a cord to plug in to the wall,and one for the ibook,the later models were a white square with an apple logo. either one will work as long as it is designed for an ibook g3/g4 and is 45w or higher.

SOURCE: my apple ibook g4 will not recognize the charger

It takes a lot of force to break a charger connector in the charge socket, so the connector socket in the iBook will probably be damaged and needs replacing. Take it to a reputable repairer, or, if you have the skills, you can fit a replacement DC In Board.

If you are running OS X put the appropriate system disk in the disk drive. Boot up using the c key. Once booted go up to the file menu and go to the reset password menu and reset your password.

My G3 phone is flashing the apple symbol while powering up but isn't powering up.


Thank for contacting Fixya, I will be glad to assist you.

What you can do, in order to resolve this issue, is start by resetting your iPhone 3G.
(Note: this does not remove any settings, data or media you have installed in your device)
• To perform a hard reset, press and hold your Sleep and Home Menu buttons for approximately 10 seconds.
• Once your screen goes black, release both keys. (If you see a white Apple logo before you release the keys you have held the keys to long and will need to start the reset process once again)
• The next screens you should see after the black screen, is the Apple logo screen followed by the main screen.

• This hard reset process should help bring your iPhone 3G back to normal functionality.

It would also be advisable to connect your iPhone 3G via its docking cable and provided wall socket adapter into a working wall socket in order to try and charge it.

If your iPhone 3G still does not charge, try connecting it with the docking cable to your computer or laptop to observe if it will take a charge then.

Should this process also not affect the way the iPhone charges, then you should look into using or purchasing another iPhone docking cable, as the cable itself may not be functional and needs to be replaced.

Docking cables for iPhones are fairly inexpensive (Under $20) and can be found in most electronics/computer stores that carry Apple products and accessories.
(Link: Apple Dock Connector)

Finally, if a replacement docking cable does not help the iPhone 3G charge, this may be a hardware issue and you would be advised to take the iPhone 3G in to your local Apple retail store or Apple Authorized Service Provider in your area.

I have an ibook g3 , it works ok with mac os x but when i shut down , it did not want to open again on osx, it apears the ? question and not start again, and if i shut down the dark screan apears, please...


We ran a typical Ibook G3 14 inch battery of tests, including games, applications, and a couple other areas. Time constraints limited the amount of testing we could get done before the NDA lift (and it's already a few hours late), but we will be providing a follow-up article with further testing and information. That said, if there are any specific areas that you'd like to see tested, feel free to e-mail me or leave a comment.

My ibbok 3g wont play dvds or youtube? help


Many iBook G3s came with optical drives for CDs only, not DVDs; and the decoding software for many of today's popular video formats runs extremely slow on all G3 processors. It's not clear that there is anything wrong with your computer other than its age. The first iBook G3 models were ten years old last February.

Screen shuts down past 90degrees-g3 x12inch


It's bad wiring between the motherboard & screen. Service is required. Go to a local Apple Store retailer to get your MacBook G3 fixed.

Can you connect an external monitor to the Macbook? You can verify your lcd screen this way.
You may need one of these connectors:

IBook G3 900mhz 14" lcd


The date and time are held by the battery so I would guess the battery is going dead or is. Try keeping it plugged in and shut it down for a few then reboot. If the time and date stay good guess the battery is dead. Also make sure you get the power management firmware update from apple. hope it helps
