My ibook G3 will recognize my verizon fios router but will not establish a connection with it after the wep has been typed in , a message pops up saying "there was an error joining the airport network" please help
The G3 Airport cards will only connect to 802.11b base stations. An Airport Extreme card is needed for many newer base stationswhich are 802.11g/n. Unfortunately you can't fit the Exterme card in place of the original. I use an external adapter with my iBook G3 in order to connect through the Airport Extreme base station. See link below. You need OS X 10.4 or better.
