Question about Apple iBook G3 Mac Notebook

1 Answer

Ibook g3 The laptop is a 600 MHz PowerPC Processor, 640 Mb RAM, 30 Gb hard disk.  Has Mac OS X 10.3.9 installed.  How do I connect wirelessly to the internet?  I understand that I need a wireless router. How do I know which type of router - for instance some say 802.11b others say 802.11g so are these a big deal to pay attention to when purchasing a router?  Thanks.

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: Ibook g3 - 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!
