Router environment to support Windows and Mac

I have a PC and a laptop running Windows XP Professional. I also have a G3 iMac running OS9/X. I have high speed cable modem service currently connected to the PC. I'd like a secure wireless environment that will support all the above. I'm pretty savy and confident I can hook everything up; I just don't know what all I need. What do you recommend?

Thanks in advance

You just need to access the router setup page and configure the wireless security for it, I suggest you use wpa as the security mode which is a much higher security mode that will amke your network secure, then after that connect to your secured wireless network.

When i open the google site i can not read all words in my ibook g3. i can see only question marks. how to solve the problem? please help me.


Hi,
The problem most likely is that you have quite an old browser, so we just need to get you a better one that can run on your operating system.
If you are on OSX, then you should try Opera from here
If you are on OS9, then you need the awesome iCab which you can download from here
Regards.

I want to use old software and requires 0s 9 can i install that if mine has 0sx on now


It just depends. If, when the HD was formatted, it had the OS9 drivers installed then the answer is yes.
If on the other hand, the HD was wiped and reformatted without the OS9 drivers (it's an option in the formatting panel) then you won't be able to install OS9 without wiping the HD and reformatting.
Try to install OS9 - if it goes in you are OK, if not, then you will have to reformat and start again. - (losing any OS X software that might have been added extra)

since apple drives are formatted in HSF+, a file system that windows cannon read, the chances of it even being bossible to run anything on it from a PC is very very slim.

I have a ibook g3 clamshell laptop. I am trying


The G3 iMac clamshell speaks 802.11b wireless signal only. If your router is an 802.11n router, this symptom is known to occur, especially if you have any level of encryption (WEP, WPA, WPA2) on your router signal. Try temporarily turning the encryption off on your router and disabling N mode (set to G mode only) and see if this solves your problem. If so, obviously you don't want to leave your router unencrypted, but you may have to leave it set to G mode as long as you want your clamshell to be able to access it.

Will Virtual PC for mac v7 work with an new iMac (Mac OS X, Version 10.5.7)?


Basically, if your new iMac has the new Intel processor (or any Intel based processor Macs) your Virtual PC v7 will not work on it. It is designed for iMacs/Macs that are not Intel Based machines (that run on the Motorola processors like the G3, G4 lines, etc).
All Intel based iMacs/Macs are capable of running Windows using a Dual boot startup that is available at the Mac Store or online. Check the Apple website for instructions, they are always updating the software. :)

Can i play Civ II on my brand new mac?? or do i need an older mac


Civ II is a fairly old game. It seems that your PC runs Windows XP or earlier. It is likely that the site you read was correct, and your computer is too new to run it. However, you may be able to get another newer version of Civ for Mac, but check the system req's for any game you try to install. I don't know for sure if this is the case, but I hope this helps you somewhat.
