Re: How to connect to dsl
You need to install either an "airport card" in your system or if you already have one in your computer, you need to download "airport" from the apple website. This is the only way MAC's can receive wireless signal.

The printer says that it is connected correctly to the router because the router is aware of it and has assigned to it an IP address on the network.
The computer on the other hand does not know that there is a printer. Not finding one (or not knowing where to look for it) the computer reports that the printer is offline.
You must install the printer drivers on the computer.
OS X drivers for the Apollo 2250 apparently exist only in 10.5 and 10.6, both of which your iMac G4 is too old to run.
If you have this printer attached to another computer on your home network, you could activate printer sharing and allow your G4 to print to it that way.
It is most likely your power supply. You can try buying one and changing it out. But it sounds like its the power supply, and don't keep trying to turn it on, if the supply comes through weak or bad-sine it can harm the motherboard.
From System Preferences / Printers, delete the printer completely.
If you have the driver installer for the driver you are using, re-launch it and choose the "uninstall" option. If not, you will have to rip out a lot of code by hand -- you will have to search HP's website for the page on how to manually remove traces of old Mac HP drivers.
Download the latest driver for your printer from the HP website. Install if carefully.
After rebooting, go to System Preferences / Printers and re-define the printer. Make sure you use the HP driver, not any of the generic drivers.
This ought to clear the problem.
The only way to replace the network card is to replace the logic board in this unit, however if you are running 10.5, you can purchase an external USB to ethernet adapter at a local Apple retailer and you can hook the computer to the network through that adapter
Yes it can be done if you are in OS9 under your apple menu control panels you will see a Tcp/ip setting. In there change the setting to modem built in then put in the phone number you wish to dial and it should work. There also use to be a setting called free PPP that would work also.
well imac G4's don't have built in airport (wireless internet) included as usual with apple its another item you must buy an airport extreme card then hook it up to an airport base station another item to buy via wireless internet then hook you airport extreme base station up to your modem via ethernet. whew ok now sync the airport base station to your imac using airport set up application then select your network and type your WEP password and viol internet in about 1 hour if your lucky hope this helped my fingers hurt now LOL.
