Question about Apple PowerBook G4 Mac Notebook

1 Answer

My Wife's G3 Apple Power Book with aITU V.92 modem is very slow in the internet and only has 1 bar of reception. She has no problems with her older G3 iBook in the same location. Any ideas why that might be?

"Bar of reception" is a phrase that applies to wireless network connections, not dialup modems. Can you please clarify which you are actually using?

    I'm sorry, that was supposed to be a clarification request, not a solution.

My ibook g3 running slow


If you have the original Install CDs that came with the iBook put in Install Disk 1.
When the Menu Bar appears go to Disk Utility (under file manu). Choose your HD and look for the S.M.A.R.T. status. It should be Verified. Then choose Repair Permissions. After that is done choose Repair Disk.

If none of this works find the Hardware Test Disk and run that.

I had this problem with a G3 ibook. All our other laptops and desktops were fine but the old G3 was left w/o a connection. I did install an older wifi router that was pre G3 type and put it in line with the other modem via an ethernet cable from the normal router e-net port to the internet e-net port on the older style router... now eveyone can access w/o issue. This may be the reason for your prob, too.

While attempting to watch videos the voice is ok but the video is slow apple I book laptop


This is a problem with all iBook G3s. The CPU and graphics processor just aren't fast enough to process video well, especially online videos. In my iBook I have upgraded many of the components, but it still doesn't play videos well.

When watching videos you can try to close all other programs, turn off the wireless internet connection (if you have one), and reduce the screens resolution. Doing this will reduce the amount of information the computer has to process so that it can focus more on processing the video.

Internet device problem (maybe)


no this is not normal if you keep dropping off then theres a problem with either the modem or the reception you are getting, if your using a wireless modem try to look for a good spot where you can reviece a good connection if you are not using a wireless modem, if you have a spare modem try using it if still get the same result then its time contact your i.s.p (internet service provider)

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.

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.

Possible modem problem


Make sure you log on details are correct. Confirm the dial out credentials. The line just needs a dial tone, which you can test with a land line phone.

Resume call is a function of the modem...
Unless that G3s modem has a firmware update to allow this,
I think you are looking at a new external modem.
Look for V.92 on the box
