Cannot connect ibook g3 clamshell to internet using airport card


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.

I have a ibook g3 clamshell laptop. I am trying


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.

I am purchasing a gently used Apple/Mac-G3 **** Shell I-Book off E-Bay, but I want to up grade the hard drive as well as replace the battery, so it can be charged through the A/C adapter. Where are the...


on the clamshell iBook the battery is directly under the back edge of the computer. right in front of the hinges on the bottom side. The hard drive will be trickier to replace because you'll have to take the computer almost all the way apart. If the computer doesn't come with the disks, YES, you will need some. Those can also be found pretty cheaply on ebay.

My notebook says not charging, it's brand new


there was an issue with the ibooks and older powerbooks (wallstreet) that the pmu would stop charging at about 10%. Apple released an app to fix it,but you must be running os 8/9 to use the app. the apple download and description can be found here: http://docs.info.apple.com/article.html?artnum=60655

G3 ibook clamshell startup


The clamshell is 9 years out. The life of a hard drive under normal use is 4. Time to get a new machine? Does the clamshell have a firewire port?

IBook Clamshell Startup problem after Upgrade


Given that the "power ring" no longer lights up, I am wondering if the DC-in board is mis-connected in some way. No light = no power going to logic board, and no power going to charge the battery.

An alternative test would be to borrow a charged battery from another clamshell. If the machine boots, you know that there's something askew with the DC-in board.

BTW, there are excellent take-apart guides for iBooks at iFixit.com
