Re: wireless access

Your iBook is compliant with any 802.11b/g gear. Just follow the instructions in the router or access point's manual for setting up. Usually, wireless routers and access points include their own proprietry software for the initial setup. This helps in locating the device on the network but it is not necessary and will probably not have a mac version for you. Every wireless AP and router I've seen has a platform independent web interface for configuration.

Problem with wireless connection. Our router is hooked up to the pc in the living room but having trouble connecting my iBook G4 to the router using the wireless Airport in my Mac.It always connects to...

Sounds like you need to enter the ISP's DNS server number into the airport settings.
Maybe you do not have it set to acquire addresses automatically? Auto is usually painless.
You should be able to find it in the router settings.
Just write down the DNS number and put it into Airport.
Also check that you have the Gateway set correctly, it could be the IP address of the router or the modem, depends on your configuration.

Mac ibook g4 connect to an existing wireless network?

Usual problems are making sure that you select the correct security options at both ends and then DHCP problems. I would disable DHCP on the mac and select your own IP address above the existing ones to start with

Is my problem the internet signal or the wireless router?


If you have been using this router/laptop for 3 years successfully and then all of a sudden it does not work, you may attempt to try an external USB wireless adapter. Does your T30 have 802.11b connectivity built in? It is not unusual for these to go out. Before you buy one check first to see if you can still access wirelessly at other hotspots? Or does the problem follow you around? If you can successfully connect at other hotspots then this is not the problem and it may very well be your router. Is there any way you can get a substitute rouer to test with before you purchace one? A friend maybe? It is probably one of these 2 issues. If you find your wireless is out on the laptop and you go to purchace a USB wireless adapter, go for a Linksys and make sure it is at least wireless "g" or "n" and not "b". And if you do not have enough USB ports then you may want the flat wireless card adapter that plugs in to the PCMCIA slot on the laptop. This can be Linksys also - I use this one (flat card) - "Wireless G Notebook adapter with SRX" Model Number WPC54GX. It is great and has speed boost. If your built in wireless on the laptop is bad, then any of these external adapters you choose to use will simply take over the wireless reception. Good Luck.

Always said connectivity/ no access to internet!!

You need to check if the wireless card in your desktop is properly configured. Or try to reset the reset bottom of the router to refresh in go back to his default setup and try to connect. If not working insert the cdrom installer in setup the configuration again of the router.

Cannot connect wireless

the fact that wired works and wireless limits the number of issues on the wireless connection and would have been a first testing step eliminating the wireless configuration as an issue.


to determine the revision of your wireless router A, B, C, D, E and get the guide. This should allow you to access the configuration of the router to compare to the configuration of the USB wireless adapter.

If you need additional assistance I will need to know the revision number so I can get the same manual for reference.

I cannot find an online version of the mac adapter guide -- are you capable of configuring items for this device without detailed assistance as I will not have a reference manual? Can you open the configuration for the USB adapter and tell me what is displayed to help fill in the answers?

Please also answer the following to help me assist you (assuming you may actually need additional help)
Also did you get the router new or did it have a previous owner?

Did you configure the router in any way after receiving it?

Have you ever configured a router or network card before?
