Sorry, so far the link included is for use with Airport extreme.
My router is connected to Airlink 101. I have connected my iMac to the internet via an ethernet cable coming from the Airlink 101. Am i missing something here?
There is no Airport settings or folder on my iMac. I do however, have airport extreme on iBook.
I am a n00b. Sorry
Have you configured your Airport port in Network preferences? Airport Extreme is the type of Airport card in your computer. Even if you have the older Airport Standard card the information is still essentially the same.
Have you configured your Airlink to turn on the wireless transceiver (in the event it isn't on by default.) I'm not familiar with the Airlink 101. Is it a router or simply an access point (like the Airport Express?)
Does your iMac have an Airport card installed? If not you can't use it wirelessly.
Thank you again.
The airlink is a wireless router.
The iMac does not have an airport card. It connects to the internet via an ethernet port on the back of the wireless router.
My iBook can connect to the internet just fine.
I just need help connecting the iBook to the iMac and it's peripherals via the wireless connection. Is this possible?
OK. I guess I misunderstood your problem. Apparently your wireless setup is working OK. You just need to set things up to share files and peripherals. I believe these articles should help get you started:
About File Sharing
Creating and Connecting to Networks
You should also find help with sharing by selecting Mac Help from the Finder's Help menu and doing a search on "sharing" without the quotes.
In your previous post you said you had a router and the Airlink 101. Did you mean a "modem and Airlink 101?" I'm curious because in this post you said the Airlink was the router. I want to be sure you aren't using two routers because that can cause some confusion in the network.
