    Yes you will need a wireless router to use the wireless, and you should also be able to connect the laptop using the same method as the desktop depending on the modem supplied.

Cannot connect ibook g3 clamshell to internet using airport card


It's probably too old to use the current protocol of your wireless network. The G3 has been abandoned hardware for at least 7-8 years.

We brought a used ibook 3g and it will not play the dvd's and the videos on youtube keep freezing and won't hardly play. What can we do to fix this problem?


Unless it is a SE (special edition) one, it will not play dvds - it only has a cd drive. Tangerine and Blueberry models do not have dvd drives. Indigo and Key Lime models do. there are 2 different graphite models - one does and one doesnt. And youtube videos never play well on clamshells - they weren't designed for internet video. However youtube mobile (m.youtube.com) does work on the clamshell i've found. Good luck!

Just bought the apple ibook g3 clamshell


If you can detect wireless connections in your area, then you have a wireless card in your Apple.
You cannot connect to the Internet unless you have a DSL or cable modem that connects to an Internet Service Provider.
You can connect to the Internet using a public access WiFi hot spot, these are located at McDonalds, Star Bucks and at the airport etc. and some Internet Cafe. There maybe some charges for these Internet connection.

My clamshell ibook shows signal but won't load sites...


Try with Safari or Firefox. If still no pages loading then your Airport is not connecting to the Internet. If you are using a cable modem contact your ISP for assistance.

Internet connection


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.

Hi Sahemric,

What OS is running on your system also, OS9 or OSX. I've got to wrack my brain to remember how to check in OS9 (it's been about 6yrs since I last used it) but in OSX it's very simple. Goto the apple symbol in the menu bar choose 'About this mac' then 'more info...' and in the left hand 'Contents' panel in the 'Network' section is 'AirPort Card'. Select that and if it says 'No information found' then you ain't got it! Otherwise it will give you the Make, model and settings.

If you have got one then the setup is different for each version of the OS so again I'd need that but that should get you part way there

All the best
Sean

If your OS is System 10, Go to home and find application folder, there you can find iMovie icon and double click it. or If your system is OS 9.0 or 9.2, double click your system folder which is on the desktop and then find the application folder, there you can find the iMovie icon, double click it and thats it.or If you have  the Operating System CD installer, try browsing the CD and open all packages content. There you will find iMovie installer and install it. Thats it!
