Question about Apple iBook G4 Mac Notebook
I restored my iBook G4 using Terminal with instructions I found online. My laptop was running slowly and kept freezing. Prior to restoring it I installed Onxy to try to repair it. My pointer/cursor had been jumping to different areas when I typed as well as the freezing & slow performance issue. How do I repair my iBook?

The pointer jumping on the screen sounds like you may have picked up a virus. While rare, there are mac viruses. I would try to save all my data documents and any other valuable personal files or lists, then do a clean reinstall of the operating system. Then load our documents back in.
You could try to scan for a virus with a mac virus program, but not many are available for a G4 Power PC (PPC) machine.

have you gone into airport utility?
are you using an airport extreme? if so, reset it.
then delete the current wireless network, and try setting up a new one in airport utility.

that just means it cant find it you need to try other setting and create a network connection,
it should see the network cable straight away try diff port on the router then dial up the ip address of the router first and change the setting . ip like 126.96.36.199

Try resetting the PRAM by turning on the iBook then holding option + command + P + R and wait till u hear another chime. If it still freezes, it may indicate an application may be causing it to lock up hold shift after you hear the chime to boot OS X into safe boot.

Start from scratch. Go back to your main computer and create a USB key and try that way.
Wondering, is your MAc setup for wireless?
Another thought, i had the same issue connecting my Mac to my parents wireless. I used the installation disc and that solved that.
