I am on my g3 and it is very slow


The speed performance of any computer is affected the amount of RAM memory and the amount of space of the primary hard drive that contains the operating system. So, check both items and upgrade both to the maximum that can be had. Back in the day, RAM was expensive so as configured by apple, iMacs came configured with minimal size. With RAM upgraded, the operating system more applications could be opened, which includes processes that run in the background. With the minimal RAM, OS 8, would hit the hard drive to swap pages of memory, rolling them in and out. Over time, the area used on hard drive would fragment, causing several read operations to assemble a page of RAM memory. This I believe was the era of using disk utility tools like Norton Disk Doctor to de-frag the hard drive. Also Tech Tools. So the easiest is to upgrade the RAM on the G3 iMac / Power Mac. Once you have upgraded the RAM, then you can then begin to upgrade the hard drive to the maximum size that your OS is capable of using. It has been so long ago I have forgotten what that value might be. I believe that the latest version of OS 8 was at revision 6 (8.6). In the latter days of the G3 power macs / iMacs, it was OS 9 (9.2). Some G3 CPUs could run OS X (10.2). The point being to upgrade RAM, hard drive space, and the Operating System. The larger capacity of the hard drive should delay the onset of fragmentation. Something to consider when upgrading the hard drive is to determine if your G3 computer is capable of using a solid state "hard drive". If you are able to do so, the speed performance is very impressive. Boot times are phenomenal. What may have taken a minute to accomplish now only takes 30 seconds. Go to www.youtube.com enter keywords Mac G3 SSD. View several videos that others have posted about their experiences. There is a video demonstrating this guys upgrades on a G3 "Graphite" IMac, boosted to 1 gig of RAM, and a 60 gig SSD. Impressive this old Mac. Take note of MacRumors dot com website, a great resource. In general, I check YouTube videos in addition googling any particular subject. I would suggest to upgrading to "Tiger" just as he did. As it relates to your WIFI, it is possible that your WIFI card is defective or is missing. If you are running OS 9, then you have to do some investigating. If you are running OS x, then go to to the pull down menu and select "About this Mac" then select "more" the begin to see if you show an airport card. It is "iffy" whether your internal WIFI card would be able to connect with the wireless routers of today. Something to consider is to acquire an old airport base station unit and have that connected to where you currently are connected directly to your Mac. Alternately you might want to scan the forums like at MacRumors for any discussion surrounding vintage Apple products as it relates to WIFI. The limiting factor then become the graphics co processor. The OS will offload processing work to the graphics card. The greater the memory capacity of the graphics card, the faster the performance. Another website I go to is: www.macsales dot com. The have technicians you can speak with concerning upgrades. I wish you success as you seek to increase performance to the maximum. You have an excellent opportunity to do most if not all of the upgrades yourself I normally go to www.ifixit dot come. To get instructions on proper tear downs on my G5 / intel iMacs.

Why can't I connect my iMac to my Dlink DIR-615 wireless router?


That is a older wifi access point and maybe the N is not compatible for your imac. I would get a dual band 2.4/5Mhz wifi Access Point.

How to increase signal for 2Wire 2700?


Increase the WiFi power of your 2Wire 2700HG-B

If your 2700HG-B is one of the ex-SBC/AT&T refurbs that are available from Caneris, eBay, etc. and it is on firmware v4.25.19, then you can easily increase wireless power levels from 1 to 10 using the Management and Diagnostic Console. According to Wireless Power levels, power level 1 is ~25mW, 4 is ~100mW and 10 is ~400mW. (Other variants of the 2700HG may only go from 1 to 4 but the link shows how you may be able to hack the power setting to higher levels.)

1. MDC -> Local Network – Wireless Settings -> Additional Settings -> Power Setting

727hq1.jpg

2. Physical orientation.

New 2Wire 2700HGs come with a bracket that orients them in a vertical position. Presumably 2Wire designed the 2700 series to work best that way. The 2700s have two antennas but they are inside the box and cannot be reoriented like the external antennas on most other WiFi routers.

2000.series_tn.jpg

My refurb didn't come with the bracket so like most people I set up mine horizontally. But I kept wondering if orientation matters.

Well it sure does. Changing to vertical orientation increased the power level as reported on my remote PC from "Good" to "Excellent." The remote PC is a couple of floors above the 2700HG. It is possible this increase will not be as pronounced if your remote PC is located horizontally away from the 2700HG.

It is very easy to make a bracket. I used the plastic screw-on cap from a 1kg jar of peanut butter. With a hacksaw (what an appropriate name, eh? wink.gif) I cut a 1¼" slot like so.

20upky1.jpg

If you are not into peanut butter I imagine you can find a plastic lid or similar, about 4" in diameter, to use instead.

Anyway, with about 10 minutes of work you can quadruple the output power of your 2700HG and more than double the signal strength.

P.S. Yes, I realize I am using WEP encryption and that it is not very secure. One of my remote PCs only has 802.11b with only WEP support. I am not particularly concerned. Several of my neighbours have their WiFi APs wide open. One even has the file systems of his PCs completely exposed to the world. They are an easier target than me

I can't connect my itouch to my wifi. It asks for a password for my wifi. I don't know the password for my wifi.


For some 2wire device you will find the wireless password underneath it its commonly a combination of 10 digit there should be a sticker on the 2wire and look for that 10 digit code if you cannot find it there contact your Internet Provider so the can provide you that wireless key.......

My 2wire router will not connect to my nintendo ds wifi system.


The DSi only works with WEP encryption. The 2Wire and most other newer routers use WPA encryption.

Simply logon to your router with a web browser. The default IP for it is 10.1.1.138 but it might be different, just check the manual or internet for the IP. Go to "Home Network" then "Advanced Settings" and change the security from WPA to WEP and save.

Thats it!

Hope that helps.
