Question about Apple eMac G4 Desktop
I have an eMac 1GHz connected by ethernet cable to a Linksys router. It will connect to the internet no problem, but then the speed of the connection can range from reasonsable to painfully slow - sometimes even zero. I have another eMac connected to the same router via airport card - that gives no problem. I also have two old 333MHz tray loading iMacs that I often connect. These also give no problem. It doesn't seem to matter if the other computers are connected or not - the speed still slows. I hope someone can help.
If you have high speed internet go to your ISP webpage and do a speed test. If You are paying for say like 10 MEGS and are only pulling 1.2 Megs. It probably is your modem. Your speed will slow down to approx 7.5 behind a router. Also Your ethernet cable might need replacing. might also might try resetting your router. disconnect all power even the cable comming in and reset everything. Hope that helps.

Connecting the Devices Together
After confirming the Internet connection through the modem, connect the modem to the Internet port of the router; connect the computer to any of the four Ethernet ports at the back of the router. For instructions, click here.
Checking the Router's LEDs
After connecting the devices together, check the lights on the front panel of the router. Ensure that the Internet light, as well as numbered light corresponding to the Ethernet port where the computer is connected, is lit. For further instructions, click here.
Setting Up a Linksys Router for Cable Internet Connection
Access the router's web-based setup page. For instructions, click here.
NOTE: If you are using a Mac computer to access the router's web-based setup page, click here.
On the Setup tab, click the MAC Address Clone sub-tab.
Select Enabled then click Clone My PC's MAC.
Click Save Settings.
Click the Status tab.
Check the Internet IP Address. If the Internet IP Address has numbers, this means the router has been properly configured. You should now be able to access the Internet. If you're still unable to access the Internet, powercycle the modem, the router and then restart the computer.
NOTE: If the IP address is still 0.0.0.0, click IP Address Release then, click IP Address Renew. If this does not change the IP Address, powercycle the modem, the router and then restart the computer.
