Yes, you ;could set up a network using the G5 as a server, but it would be better to get a network router on your internet connection and hook both computers up to that.

Hi I bought apple I mac G5 1.6mhz 80gb serial number W84457TKPP6 from eBay. I'm just wondering how I connect it to internet? Do I need dongle and if yes what do I buy? Thank you. Regards Alison.

http://www.ebay.com/itm/USB-WIRELESS-CARD-for-iMAC-MAC-Apple-Airport-G3-G4-G5-X-/130334850512

But suggest checking if the g5 has a wireless card installed in it first before buying a dongle.


you may have an airport extreme card but if it does not have one see link below
https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT201713

suggest asking an apple store for advice on the g5 Imac

this help link should show where the card should be installed in your G5

I have an iMac g5 and an eMachine. I have internet on the iMac and I need to get it to the Windows computer. I have TONS of cords and like 5 wifi roughters. I just need to know what to do inside...


just connect both computers to the same router/hub. if mac is working then windows should work as well. on a wired network in windows xp and beyond, there is no set-up required. if it is not working, then perhaps you using a crossover cable (meant to connect 2 computers directly) instead of a regular ethernet cable.

G5 keeps powering up for a few mins then switches off?


Thank you for contacting Fixya Support, I am glad to assist.

There are a few steps you can try to troubleshoot this issue:

Try a PMU Reset:
* Turn of your iMac if it is already turned off
* Disconnect all connections to the iMac except the power cord
* Now disconnect the power cord for approximately 20 seconds
* Reconnect just the power cable the keyboard, mouse and power cord, and then power your iMac G5 up.

* Check to see if the iMac boots up normally without power interruption.

* If the iMac G5 shuts off again, try these steps, another recommendation would be to remove all connections including the power cord, and lay the iMac G5 on soft cloth face down and with a philips screwdriver, remove the plate on the bottom of the iMac G5 where your RAM memory is located.
Before removing the RAM however, touch your hand on the metal boot to discharge any static current you carry for approximately 5 seconds.

Now remove each RAM card and then reseat (re-install) each card.

Restore the RAM card cover with your Philips screwdriver, reconnect your power cable, keyboard an
d mouse and turn on your iMac G5.

See if this second procedure helps if the first procedure does not work.

Let me know if this helps.

Regards
