Question about Apple PowerBook G3 Mac Notebook

2 Answers

Need instructions for setting up internet connection in OS 8

I have an older Powerbook G3 that I can't seem to get the ethernet adapter working. I connect the cable from the router, but I don't see a link light. Does it have one? If it does, the card must be bad because it's not coming on. I go into the Network settings and choose PPP but I don't see an option to allow the router to assign the IP and use DHCP. I can find instructions on the internet for setting up a connection in newer operating systems but haven't found any for OS8.
Thanks in advance.

A few tries, go to the apple in the top left and choose SYSTEM PREFERENCES....it should bring you to:

f002663.png

In the HARDWARE row you should see DISPLAYS. Select that and you will be at:

You have the DETECT DISPLAYS button, and also CLICK the "Show displays in menu bar" box, so you dont have to keep going through menus to configure.

If you look at the F7 key, to the right of the NUM LOCK key (F6), that key allows you to switch from expanded to mirroring or vice versa.

You can also check Apple's Knowledge base....

SOURCE: Open case of Apple Powerbook G3

Several screws on bottom and the whole top case snaps off. It will take a little time on this model to gently pry. Also, I think the keyboard comes off first before removing the top cover by two finger pegs. It's been a long time since I worked on this model you you'll just have to get in and look around. Very common on this design that the power plug just needs re-soldered to the motherboard.

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.

How do I connect to the internet via WIFI with a MAC Powerbook G3 laptop?


The easiest way if your Powerbook doesn't come equipped with an Airport card or isn't capable of supporting an Airport card is to purchase this http://www.sonnettech.com/product/aria_extreme.html it slides into the PCMIA slot on your Powerbook G3 (the credit card sized slot on the side of your Powerbook G3). There's support issues and model variations on older Powerbook G3's regarding Airport Card support and they're not as readily available as a standard PCMIA wireless card. This is my best suggestion for your situation.

I had this problem with a G3 ibook. All our other laptops and desktops were fine but the old G3 was left w/o a connection. I did install an older wifi router that was pre G3 type and put it in line with the other modem via an ethernet cable from the normal router e-net port to the internet e-net port on the older style router... now eveyone can access w/o issue. This may be the reason for your prob, too.

Brother mfc210c printer driver


I believe your brother printer uses one driver for fax/scan and another driver for printing. It might seem like you haven't installed the printer driver, only the fax/scan driver. You should find the driver file and the instruction on this brother.com page:

PS: the driver linked to above is for os 10.4. You might want to search for a different version if you have a newer/older OS.

If the link doesn't work, search for the driver from brother.com's site and download and install the driver by following their 12 points instruction. Good luck!

Connection of Paradyne 6211 to iMac (OS 10.5) via Ethernet


Hi,

If you connect by using LAN port (RJ 45) you don't have to install driver. However USB connection will require driver. Do you have Ethernet adapter installed to you iMAC? If you have it will be resolved easily without using USB port. Check the following link for connection instructions
http://www.fixya.com/support/p200812-paradyne_6211_a2_200_router/manual-18800/page-18

If physical connection is successful you can go to internet browser type 192.168.1.1 and check your modem's settings. Please post if you need further assistance

No Internet With New Router, Computer, or Adapter


This document is relevant if you had an Internet connection, but lost it when: * Adding a router to your network, or * Using a different Ethernet adapter card or computer than the one your ISP used during installation. Use ISP Configuration to see whether you need to "spoof a MAC address" to connect to your ISP. If so, follow the instructions in this document. If the Ethernet card that was used during ISP installation is not available, you may need to register the new Ethernet card's MAC address with your ISP for the following to work. MAC address stands for Media Access Control address (not "Macintosh computer"!), a unique number built into modems, routers and other network hardware. It ensures that one piece of equipment is not mistaken for another one. Some ISPs validate your connection by checking the MAC address of the Ethernet adapter in computer that was registered during ISP installation. If you add a router or change computer or Ethernet adapter, these ISPs will drop your Internet connection, because they find the MAC address of the newly added router or adapter, instead of the one they expect. To fix this, change the router to report the Ethernet adapter's MAC, instead of its own. This is called "spoofing the MAC address". To find a PC's or Macintosh's MAC address, see How to Find an Adapter's MAC address : http://www.fixya.com/ThreadView.aspx?prdid=252225&thid=102075. To Spoof a MAC Address 1. Connect the computer that your ISP's installers used to establish Internet connection to the router. If you are unsure which computer was used, call your ISP, and ask what MAC address was registered. Then, using the instructions in the box below find the computer whose MAC address matches their records. 2. Disconnect other computers from the router. (If you do not want to disconnect other computers, you need to know the adapter's MAC address, as described in the box below. Then, in step 6, type Use This MAC Address, entering the adapter's address.) 3. In an Internet browser type the address 192.168.0.1. 4. Type admin for the username, password for the password, and click OK. 5. Go to the Basic Settings > Router Mac Address. 6. Select Use Computer MAC Address. 7. Click Apply. This automatically gives the router the computer's MAC address. 8. Click Test to make sure you are connected. If you are not connected, contact your ISP.
