Help!! I'm having difficulty setting up my wireless connection to my ibook!

Well, I've purchased a router for my home so that I can use wireless connection for my ibook, but unfortunately I've been unsuccessful at actually getting it to work....I use roadrunner as my internet provider ( which runs through my cable) I 'm not sure if it's something to do with my modem, router, or just maybe the info in which they ask if I'm using dsl.ips.pppos.or some other jargan that I really don't understand! I would love and deeply appreciate any help that you can give me in the matter. You guys are GREAT. Jamillah

Last time I checked Roadrunner required you to have them set up the router. However, you should have an existing router from Roadrunner all set up. If you connect your other router which has the wireless capabilities to that then you will be able to use your wireless. Otherwise you will need to call Roadrunner and have them do some configuration on your device.

After years of dial up, I've acquired a HughesNet


According to the manual, you can purchase any wireless router (manual calls the router "air base")

I would advise a D-link or a Linksys router.

I cannot connect to the WIFI at work, but I can connect to my WIFI network at home, and other public networks. The wireless network at work is pushed by a D-Link 8200AP with a WAP security, just like it is...


Your laptop cannot connect to your work's wireless network because the security settings (ir WAP) in the D-Link is different to the security setting in your Netgear.
The wireless card in your laptop will need the settings changed to suit the D-Link's wireless settings ie the SSID and WAP.
You will need to change the wireless card settings in your laptop back to the Netgear's wireless settings to connect to your wireless network at home.
Some wireless cards allow you to set up different profiles for different wireless networks which allow you to switch wireless networks easily by just selecting the profile for the network you want to connect to.

Usual problems are making sure that you select the correct security options at both ends and then DHCP problems. I would disable DHCP on the mac and select your own IP address above the existing ones to start with

Ibook g3


First of all, you need an Airport card for the iBook G3, chech for example this link; http://popular.ebay.com/ns/Computers-Networking/Original-Airport-Card.html (you should buy one like this: 9deeeda.jpg


, there is a G4 card too, but your iBook doesn't support this one).
Next, install it;


Then, buy a wireless router that uses 802.11b/g or 802.11b. This is very important because your airport card doesn't support 802.11g, and install it, but don't protect your network with a WAP password, your iBook doesn't support this, but use WEP.
Then start your iBook, and click on the Airport icon in the right corner, select your network, type in the password and it will work!

How to wirelessly access HP Laserjet 1320n via Apple iBook


You need to disconnect the USB cable and set it up wireless on both units:
Since it is plugged into the router, it should already have an IP address.
Un-install the printer from the computers.
Then re-install the printer from the cd or from HP's website. When you get to the point where it ask you is the printer is attached to the computer or is it over the network. Choose over the net work and the software will find the printer IP and finish setting it up wireless.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe
