Hello, no knowledge of Server differences, but if you don't get an answer here, there is a 10.4 Server forum you might ask in...
Thanks for the response.
About connections... ethernet connection hook to the G4 just fine. Ethernet connection hooks to the router just fine. the ATT tech [a Phillipino woman] attempted to set up the Apple's internet connection several different ways. We changed passwords several times, as well as set up new connections several times. This all took about 2 hours.
This ATT tech said that ]there was something in my security settings that.....] was keeping the password from allowing me to connect my computer.
I'm using their router, which is new. I had attempted this with a eBay purchased supposedly new Apple Airport Express Base Station. Got a visual net from the base station, however ran into the same problem as stated above. Airport card seems to be working just fine as well.
It's more work to do this that I thought... and I'd really like to solve this problem.
So, is it Airport that isn't connecting?
What Encryption is the Router Using?
Your Airport card can do WEP, or WPA, cannot do WPA2 TKIP, & cannot do WPA2 AES.
Your Airport card can only use 802.11b, is that enabled in the Router?
The tech support ATT wanted me to use a WPA2 TKIP and WPA2 AES. When those didn't work at all, We set it up on WEP; didn't try WPA. Don't know what is enabled thru the router. Equally not sure what encyrption the router is using.
I think that airport is connecting, and the Airport Express Base Station seemed to work just fine. I took it out of the loop as I thought that the ATT usage was some sort of propietary thing, like they wanted me to use only their router.
I was trying to do some research on it before I called ATT back.
I gotta admit that all the encryption/password/att settings are confusing to me.
Thanks for your help... I read the archieved document you posted a link to as well.
