    I got this computer basically for free. I cannot figure out how to get hooked up online. I have DSL Broadband through Netzero on my other computer(which since has crashed) and I would like to now hook up the iMac to be able to use Netzero as my ISP. Can this be done?

    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.

An IP address is nothing but a string of numbers separated by periods that identifies each computer attached to the Internet.There are two types of IP for a single computer namely Private or local IP address ,you can find the private or internet IP address using the command prompt Start - CMD - IP config/all .And the second one is public or network IP address you can find this address by visiting the site

Hello kseoulgirl and welcome to FixYa

An IP stands short for Internet Protocol

An IP is like a home address like:
742 Evergreen Terrace, Springfield USA

but it is represented in numbers.

If you have a DSL modem it should say your IP address on the back


Hope It Helps

Reset password on belkin g wireless router

Most routers have a reset button on the back; it is usually recessed so you have to use something like a toothpick to push it in. The usual procedure is to push and hold for about 10 seconds (until the panel lights blink). This sets everything back to factory defaults, so you would have to redo your configuration, including router name, wireless password, etc.
If you just want to change your wireless password and you remember the administrative password to the router, you can go to the router's web page by typing http://(IP address). The default(IP address) is usually or
For information on these procedures specific to your router, go to the Belkin website support page and find the manual for your router model and version. Check the label on the bottom of the router to make sure you get the right manual.

Check to make sure file sharing is still on at the G3. If it is running a Server app or OS X Server, make sure File Sharing Services is up and running.
Also, check the network connections on both computers. First, open the Network System Preferences pane on the G3 and write down its IP address (Note: you should have IP addresses showing on both computers, and if they use the same router subnet, the first three parts of the IP address should be identical and the last part should be different, but still between 0 and 255. If this is not so, you have a network problem between one computer and the router or other device that provides DHCP services.).
Next, on your iMac, open the Network Utility application (in Applications/Utilities). Click the Ping tab and type in the G3 IP address, then click the Ping button. If the network is good, you should get round-trip time statistics for each ping.
If the Ping test fails, then do the following steps to troubleshoot the network. Check to see if you have link lights on for both computers at the network switch, if not, check the network cable for the unlit port. If they are connected to different switches, also check the uplink port link lights on each switch. Testing a suspect connection is most simply done by trying a known good cable, a different switch port, or another computer with a known good network interface.

If you're trying to access a specific computer in the browser that computer needs to be running some sort of server.

I can pretty much guarantee that this is an issue with your DNS servers.

Open System Preferences > Netowork > Show > Airport > TCP/IP.

Use the Open DNS Project's servers instead of your ISPs: and

How do I get an ip from netzero?

If you are using DHCP it should get one when you start your computer. I am not sure your computer skills but I have seen people plug a phone cable into the dsl modem so make sure you have an Ethernet cable pluged into the ethernet port. Sorry if you knew that but I have seen it before. One other question does your provider require a certain browser to get setup first? Under OS9 in the system Pref folder there is a TCP/IP preference, you can trash that and reboot then go back to control panels and reset your settings to ethernet/ using dhcp.
