I have an iMac G4 with and airport card (10.4.11).  I recently switched from Fios to Comcast (I know, I know), and cannot seem to get it connected to the internet (it connected fine with Fios).  Basically, I get a full-bar airport signal between my iMac and the wireless router, but it won't connect to the intneret.  I also have 2 MacBook Pro's and both connect and surf the net just fine.


Any ideas?

    Hi Brett,


    Is the Router using WPA2 perchance? A G4 cannot do above WPA.


    Make a New Location, Using network locations in Mac OS X ...



    Is that Interface dragged to the top of Network>Show:>Network Port Configurations and checked ON?


    The Interface that connects to the Internet, needs to be drug to the top of System Preferences>Network>Show:>Network Port Configurations and checked ON.


    Then... Try putting these numbers in Network>TCP/IP>DNS Servers, for the Interface you connect with...



    Then Apply.
