First, is your Airport Card (wireless networking card) installed? Go to System Preferences, then Network, and see if the Airport Card is enabled. If not, make it so and re-try.
If it shows Enabled (green dot when connected), you should be able to pick-up signals.
I'd also click on the Configure button (when Airport is selected) and check the TCP/IP button - the Configure IPv4 menu should have DHCP selected.
If your card is installed, turned on and not searching for a signal, you may have to break down and buy a new one (eBay or the like).
If you can provide any further details (like precise model info - PowerBook or iBook, what version of the OS, and perhaps some screen-shots of various dialog boxes or error messages - - use key combination of Apple/Command + Shift + 3 for the whole screen, or Apple/Command + Shift + 4 to click-drag-select the area with your mouse/pad), I may be able to provide more in-depth assistance if that's needed.
If this solves the issue, please rate it accordingly.
Thanks in-advance for using Fixya.com,

Connect the 2 with a firewire cable. Reboot the Mac you want to read from & hold the T key down while it boots up. A large firewire symbol shows on the screen indicating FireWire Target Mode. The other Mac should be showing up as a firewire drive on the other Mac.

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

if you want to transfer files from Mac to Mac, you will need a firewire cable. You can not do it with a USB cable.
there are a couple of different types of firewire, and the appropriate ones you will need will depend on the macs you have.
Hope this helps

If your hard drive is full, then it can cause this problem. To empty the hard drive, deleting the files that you don't want anymore, you will have to use another Mac, and plug a firewire cable between the two.
Then press on the "T" key on your G4 (for target mode). You should see on the other mac's desktop your hard drive and everything in it. You can use the free software Disk Inventory X to get rid of the files that take too much space and that you don't need.
If that's too complicated, you can also try to boot the mac holding the shift key at startup, that will deactivate extensions and you will probably have access to your desktop. Then empty files and reboot.
Hope this helps
