Hi, I'm not even sure I'm in the right place, but I have a few questions.


At first when I connected my iMac G4 to the Internet it kept giving me "there is an error connecting to "XXXXX" network" type thing.

Now, since I pressed Cmd, Option, O & F and did the rest-nvram and reset-all, when it boots it is showing it is connected to the internet but as soon as I've clicked network diagnostics and tried to go through that dialog box it will disconnect me from the wireless connection and go back to the error dialog mentioned above.


I just bought this, though the Airport Card was wacky so I replaced that.

It recognizes it in the "About Mac" "More Info" "Network" thing.

I've troubleshooted this beyond belief, and I need a more in depth help than just a simple "try restarting the computer"

"try restarting the router"

I have tried this with several routers, all different internet connections, the whole nine yards.



iMac, Mac OS X (10.4.11)
