Your Hard Drive is not booting correctly and most likely it is damaged. There are chances however that the data is OK, but will definitely need to be taken out to fix it. The best thing is to get a new HD for your Mac and start all over with installing the OS. That is if all the other parts are OK.

It's probably too old to use the current protocol of your wireless network. The G3 has been abandoned hardware for at least 7-8 years.

It sounds like your start up files are either missing or corrupt. You need to reboot with your system disk in the cd rom (hold down the "C" key as you restart) or do a fresh install of an OS.

The G3 iMac clamshell speaks 802.11b wireless signal only. If your router is an 802.11n router, this symptom is known to occur, especially if you have any level of encryption (WEP, WPA, WPA2) on your router signal. Try temporarily turning the encryption off on your router and disabling N mode (set to G mode only) and see if this solves your problem. If so, obviously you don't want to leave your router unencrypted, but you may have to leave it set to G mode as long as you want your clamshell to be able to access it.

My clamshell ibook shows signal but won't load sites...


Try with Safari or Firefox. If still no pages loading then your Airport is not connecting to the Internet. If you are using a cable modem contact your ISP for assistance.
