Question about Apple Power Mac G5 Desktop
I have a PC that connects just fine. Even when I unplug the ethernet cord from my PC and plug it directly into my Mac, I cannot get internet service. This is my first Mac. Am I doing something wrong?
With a cable plugged in The Mac should automatically connect.
Try this. Leave the ethernet plugged into the mac and shut down the mac. Power it back up and see what happens - does the light on the router (1,2,3 or 4) come on to signify that the mac is talking to the router?
If not then I would think that there may be a problem with the ehtenet port on the Mac.
Also, open system preferences and then select network. Make sure ethernet is selected and then click on the TCP/IP tab. You should see a bunch of numbers listed - starting 192.168. or 10.0. and a line with lots of 255. If you get these and the top number differs from the bottom number then you should have a connecttion. If on the other hand you only have one line of numbers and it starts 169. then the mac is not talking out of the ethernet port at all.
If that is the case you should get someone in to look at it.
Post back and let us know what happened.
