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.

I have an GT704-WG Rev B; Firmware= 30.17.0 which is connected to my (Macintosh) iMac running OS 10.6.7. Until about 6 months ago my older laptop (Mac, iBook, PowerPC purchased in 2001) was able to use...


Turn the Verizon router off.
Turn the ActionTec router off.
Turn the Verizon router on, and wait until its pattern of lights settles-down to a steady pattern, i.e., fully rebooted.
Turn the ActionTec router on.
Turn the ActionTec router on, and wait until its pattern of lights settles-down to a steady pattern, i.e., fully rebooted.
Use an Ethernet cable to connect from one of the LAN ports on the ActionTec router to the network port on your iMac.
You should now have Internet access.

The next step is to start Safari on the Mac, and connect to the web-server "inside" the ActionTec router, e.g., try http://192.168.0.1 and http://192.168.1.1 and http://192.168.2.1

Login to the router, and run the Wireless Networking Setup Wizard, to configure the wireless adapter:
* SSID -- the name of your network
* encryption-level, e.g., use 'WPA' or 'WPA2'
* password for your SSID

Once you've done this, any of your wireless devices should be able to connect to that SSID, and gain Internet access.

Does this router support my Mac OS X?


Works with both PCs and MACo Computers


The router supports a variety of networking environments including MAC OSo 8.x, 9.x, X v10.x, Linux, Windows 98, ME, NTo, 2000, XP, Vista etc. All that is needed is an Internet Browser and a network adapter that supports TCP/IP (the standard language of the internet)

Ipod is detecting network but will not connect


1. You will need to find the MAC address of the device and add it to the access list of the router in order for the device to be able to access the internet.
This is done in the router.
1.Log into router
2. Verify wireless router name( on the computer) >>> ( on/off)
3.Note router name you are connecting to.
4.. Check the laptop do ipconfig /all to see current IP addresses. Done in the command line in Windows "run" if (Windows XP).
5. Set the Device/laptop up in the router by WEP KEY or MAC address.
6.Note router name you are connecting to.
7. Try to log on to the internet.
This is for all routers to set up wirelessly.

Mac router compatability Zoom ADSL X6


Remember it takes two to tango, so the issue may just as well be in the iMac as in the Zoom X6... Regardless of that, I had the same problem (PC works fine, iMac and PC both get flaky when the iMac is powered up). Zoom tech support suggested trying RF channels 1, 6, or 11. The router was using channel 10, changing to channel 11 calmed things down. Zoom said there wasn't anything magic in those numbers, but their testing showed those channels worked best with the Apple products.

My Mac and my WPN824


All wireless routers do not accept unencrypted communications. Have the Macs in either/both cases either been moved from an environment requiring encryption to one not requiring encryption or requiring encryption with a different key. This also occurs when moving from a non-encrypted environment to an encrypted environment. Another possibility is that the wireless router in the new location does not broadcast it's SSID (name) and requires knowledge and entry of its name for access generally along with an encryption key. The person that setup the wireless router should be able to answer these questions and assist with the setup of the Mac's wireless adapter. Research would need to be made and I do not have a current Mac to test with to walk through the current process however this should provide the information for a knowledgeable Mac person to interface with person that configured the router or has the router configuration information to complete the changes necessary to allow access. If a short term solution is required and wired connections are possible (wired ethernet ports exist on both the router and the computer) using a wired connection to the router can be utilized to avoid the whole wireless configuration issue.
