That just means it cant find it you need to try other setting and create a network connection,
it should see the network cable straight away try diff port on the router then dial up the ip address of the router first and change the setting . ip like 196.162.0.1

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.

Just bought the apple ibook g3 clamshell


If you can detect wireless connections in your area, then you have a wireless card in your Apple.
You cannot connect to the Internet unless you have a DSL or cable modem that connects to an Internet Service Provider.
You can connect to the Internet using a public access WiFi hot spot, these are located at McDonalds, Star Bucks and at the airport etc. and some Internet Cafe. There maybe some charges for these Internet connection.

Ibook g3


First of all, you need an Airport card for the iBook G3, chech for example this link; http://popular.ebay.com/ns/Computers-Networking/Original-Airport-Card.html (you should buy one like this: 9deeeda.jpg


, there is a G4 card too, but your iBook doesn't support this one).
Next, install it;


Then, buy a wireless router that uses 802.11b/g or 802.11b. This is very important because your airport card doesn't support 802.11g, and install it, but don't protect your network with a WAP password, your iBook doesn't support this, but use WEP.
Then start your iBook, and click on the Airport icon in the right corner, select your network, type in the password and it will work!

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.

Internet connection


Depending on what model clamshell you have will determine a few things. One thing to take into considertion is does it have an airport card in it already? I know it does not have USB 2.0 so a dingle is going to be super slow. 
The original apple airport cards that went into most of the computers before like 94 or so are the same and will work in your machine too.
Getting to it is a little more of a chore. go to iFixit.com for a detailed directions to install it and they also have items like this for sale. Check on eBay for a known good working pull apple airport card delivered for not more than $75.

The OS mac osx has the drivers installed on it to support this device so does OS9

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.
For Guest: Does your iBook 3G have an Airport card?

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe
