Yes, you can use the ethernet 10/100baseT connector for high speed, the 56K modem for dial up or an optional Airport card for wireless

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.

Tips to install internet on g3 **** shell ibook but every time i open internet explorer it seem to close the web browser down what could be the problem on my ibook

Depending on which OS (sounds like OS 9) you are using you probably need to trash the preferences or the cache for Explorer.
Follow the solutions in this link at Apple:
I'd also suggest once you get back online, that you download iCab, Mozilla or an older version of Opera. Explorer chokes on most of the web these days since it hasn't been updated for Mac in many years.

I have a ibook g3 clamshell laptop. I am trying

The G3 iMac clamshell speaks 802.11b wireless signal only. If your router is an 802.11n router, this symptom is known to occur, especially if you have any level of encryption (WEP, WPA, WPA2) on your router signal. Try temporarily turning the encryption off on your router and disabling N mode (set to G mode only) and see if this solves your problem. If so, obviously you don't want to leave your router unencrypted, but you may have to leave it set to G mode as long as you want your clamshell to be able to access it.

I am purchasing a gently used Apple/Mac-G3 **** Shell I-Book off E-Bay, but I want to up grade the hard drive as well as replace the battery, so it can be charged through the A/C adapter. Where are the...

on the clamshell iBook the battery is directly under the back edge of the computer. right in front of the hinges on the bottom side. The hard drive will be trickier to replace because you'll have to take the computer almost all the way apart. If the computer doesn't come with the disks, YES, you will need some. Those can also be found pretty cheaply on ebay.

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.

Forgotten Password

It you have the recovery DVDs, or a retail copy of an OS DVD, you can start up from that DVD. Then in the top there are Utilities. Click that Menu, and there is an option to change passwords.

There are 2 ways. I can answer it best if you can tell me : Does the clamshell have a firewire port? Do you have a copy of OS X that is not INTEL?
