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.

SOURCE: airport card only works in same room as router

Do you have a cordless phone in the apartment?
how many rooms do you have and in which room is the signal low? What router do you have?

Intermittent Connectivity:
NOTE: Before following the steps in this article, check if your wireless computers have stable connection when connected to other wireless networks (hotspots).
This article assumes that all wireless computers are experiencing intermittent wireless connection with the router.
Frequent wireless disconnection can be caused by different factors such as:

  1. Wireless interference within the network.
  2. Wireless settings of the router are still set to default.
  3. Firmware is corrupted.
Reducing Wireless Interference
If you are experiencing frequent disconnection from the wireless network, it helps if you check the following factors, all of which can greatly affect your wireless signals:
your cordless telephone system (or even your neighbors’), or other nearby equipment. Try to change your router’s channel to 1 or 11 (the default channel is 6) and restart the wireless computers.
Physical obstructions: Your router or wireless computers may be losing connectivity because of physical obstacles such as walls and floors. Try to move the equipment to different locations to find a better link.

  • Placement of the router:
  • Router mfg'ssuggests that you place your router as high off the ground as possible. When placing the router in a high location, leave a distance of two feet between the router antenna tips, ceiling, and wall. If your signal passes through multiple floors, place the router on the upper-most floor, and high up in the room.
  • Surroundings: Keep the router away from large metal objects, bodies of water (fish tanks, bathrooms), and any electrical equipment including television sets, microwaves, radios, etc.
Customizing Wireless Settings of the Router
Having default wireless settings on the router may cause conflict with other routers within your network range. change the SSID (network name) and the Wireless Channel of your router. Also, if it is possible, enable the Wireless Security of your router.

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

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.

My Apple I Book G3 has a Airport Card. How can I connect to the internet using this. Also I would like to connect wireless if possible Do I need to purchase anything to do this.? Thanks


Bear with me I have not used the OS for a while, first what OS are you using? if OSX then there should be a signal icon along the top, looks like a smeared wiper on a car. If it is there click on it and you should get a list of available networks, select yours and fill in the password and that should be it. get back if you need more.

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.

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!

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
