The wireless feature on a Gateway computer allows you to connect to a network without the hassle of cables. This allows you to browse the Internet conveniently wherever you are. Gateway computers rely on Windows operating systems, which come with a built-in feature to manage your wireless connection. This feature makes turning off your wireless connection an easy process if, for a moment, you prefer to connect to the Internet using a wired connection.
Click the Windows "Start" menu and click the "Control Panel." Click Network and Internet Connections > Network Connection, if you are using a Windows XP Gateway computer. You should see your wireless connection. For Windows Vista and 7 Gateway computers, click "Network and Sharing Center" from the Control Panel and click "Manage Wireless Connections." You should see your wireless connection. Right-click your wireless connection and click "Disable" to turn it off. Close "Network Connections" when you are done.
You need to go in to system prefrences and find the internet section and enable it, watch out for passwords as Apple use different default charactors to infill if your password is shorter than the required amount, get back if you need more help, Im a little rusty on 10.3!
Are you interested in upgrading to OS X? If so, you'll need to find out how much memory your iBook has. Click the Apple menu (top right) and click "About this Computer" If you have at least 256 Megabytes, you can install OS X. I'd suggest 10.4.
The advantages of upgrading will be better compatibility with newer Mac software. It will feel more sluggish than OS 9, though, but it won't crash as much.
If you can go to your local library to use their machines to access the Internet, you can buy 10.4.
Here's a site that sells it for $79 (the lowest price I could find):

If you can detect wireless connections in your area, then you have a wireless card in your Apple.
You cannot connect to the Internet unless you have a DSL or cable modem that connects to an Internet Service Provider.
You can connect to the Internet using a public access WiFi hot spot, these are located at McDonalds, Star Bucks and at the airport etc. and some Internet Cafe. There maybe some charges for these Internet connection.
How are you trying to connect? Wireless or via wired connection? There's a control panel called NETWORK on in the systems preferences. If you go into that control panel it will show you the options that are available and what their status is. For example, I'm using the wireless on MacBook Pro and it shows a GREEN light next to the wireless connection. If you let us know how you are trying to connect to the internet, it'll help us solve your problem.
It is a system problem. There is only really one way to fix this.
You'll need to start your mac up from the original OS install disk.
You can then use the disk utility to see if the OS can be fixed or you might need to re-install the OS. Once you have started up from the install disk you might be able to see your drive. At this stage if you have not already done so you should back up those important files.
