PowerPC :: Possible To Run IBook Without AirPort Card?

Apr 18, 2008

I'm going to purchase an old iBook 700MHz and I know it's possible to remove it's wireless AirPort card, but it will the iBook run okay without the network card in place?I want to remove it but the Apple support docs have the following disclaimer:Warning: Never turn on your computer unless all of its internal and external parts are in place and it is fully reassembled. Operating the computer when it is missing parts can damage your computer or cause injury.

PowerPC :: Ibook 1.33 Airport Card Installation?

Jul 23, 2006

I need to reseat my Airport Extreme card and I don't know where it is or how to do it on this "mid-2005" model. Please point me to the appropriate URL that has diagrams. For some reason, the "mid 2005" g4 iBooks have a different Airport card removal and replacement procedure than the earlier models. Because, I suppose, airport cards were standard, i.e., not optional, with this model, the install process is not included in the manual. But you'd think that all I'd have to do is search the Apple site for "g4 ibook 1.33 airport card" or similar keywords and the instructions for removal and installation would be returned. Ha! and Double-Ha! Here are the official results of the above keywords:

PowerPC :: What To Do With Clamshell IBook (Airport Card)

Dec 28, 2006

I sort of, well, inadvertently bought an old Clamshell iBook on eBay on Christmas Day (when I'm bored, I make lowball bids on things - this was one of the rare cases where I won). The model I got is a 300 Mhz with 96 Megs of Ram - but it also has an Airport Card (which, really, was, itself, worth the price I paid for the thing - it was a really good price).

I've got an extra 256 Meg chip laying around - will the Clamshell recognize a PC133 chip? Or will it have the same problem as Lombard and only see half the memory? Also - am I better off putting, say, Panther on it, or should I do a clean install of OS 9.2? I never really used OS 9.2, what's the functionality like in terms of Airport - am I going to have trouble connecting to modern networks?

PowerPC :: Airport Card Is Locking Up My IBook?

Jun 18, 2009

yes, I think my wireless card is locking my ibook up. I have tried this on 2 browsers, and still gets locked up. I am usually using tabs (only 2 or 3) with the window maximized. I turned it off and looked at the connection. Noticed that the cord connecting the card might be crimped, so unplugged it, re-positioned the cord so it wasn't touching the metal bracket holding the card in place, and still the issue persists.

OS X :: Install Retail Version Of OS X Tiger On IBook G3 600mhz

Jul 29, 2009

I'm trying to install a retail version of OS X Tiger on an iBook G3 600mhz but all I'm getting is a blue screen after the initial grey screen with white apple logo. I've managed to get OS X Panther on it no problem but Tiger is just not playing ball. I'm having to boot up in Target Disk mode or use an external Firewire DVD player and it does the same thing every time. What I can say is that the iBook only has 128mb of RAM at present but I'm upgrading that in a day or two and I didn't think that would necessarily prevent the OS from being installed. Oh and it doesn't need a firmware upgrade.

PowerPC :: IBook Not Getting Good Wifi Signal

Oct 25, 2006

Just installed an Airport Extreme card in an iBook G4 (running Panther). Signal strength within a few feet of the wireless router (Netgear) is usually high to medium. But when I leave the room it's in the signal drops all the sudden. I haven't had much experience with wireless networking, so I'm not that familiar with this. We do have a lot of cables and wires related to the computers in the main room where the router is, could that be "blocking" the signal from outside that room?

PowerPC :: Airport Or USB For An IBook G3?

Apr 3, 2007

So, I need wireless on my iBook G3.. Airport cards go from pretty much 55-80 USD, and are only 11mbps.. should I be worried? My connection I believe is 8mbps..

But the thing is, doesn't wireless work where just because it sends at 11mbps, doesn't mean you really get 11mbps.. With interference you could get 1mbps, compared to the potential 5 or so with 54mbps..

How is the signal strength with the original airport cards? I'm going to be pretty far away.. so want to make to sure i'm not going to disconnect and reconnect all the time..

So, the other option is USB.. most now go for about 40-50 with 54mbps.. now i've heard bad things about kernel panics, and just overall frustrations.. anyone have one that works well..

OS X :: Bite Bullet And Buy Wireless Card / Usb Dongle For PC?

Jul 20, 2009

I'll soon be moving to a place that has a wireless router, but not anywhere close enough to where my computers will be to have a hardwire connection. So, if my blackbook is connected wirelessly, is there any way to share that connection with a PC that will be near it (used for games)? Something like connecting the ethernet ports on the blackbook and the PC with a length of CAT5 cable? Or will I have to bite the bullet and buy a wireless card/usb dongle for my PC?

PowerPC :: Ibook G4 16bit Video Card Upgrade?

May 28, 2008

If anyone out there has ever seen "Tailspin" you know what i am talking about when i call my ibook, The Seaduck. it is already as souped up as I can afford to with 1.2gb of ram.in my system requirements I see it says Displays:Color LCDepth: 32-bit Color Is this the same thing as a video card?

I am trying to run CS3, and some things are extreemely jumpy. i am wondering if this is because of resolution or if I need a video card(CS3 requires a 16 bit video card), or maybe hard drive? (i have 30gb-9gb free).

i know the Seaduck can take a bigger hard drive, but i am not sure about video card.Also, i have the 12" model ibook, and htis makes me feel like I am trying to write my nome on a grain of rice when I work in flash so i am wondering if I can hook my computer up to a better monitor, if you have any recomendations, and what the implications of that would be.

How do you unplug the wire that goes to the front of the card? The wire is attached to a metal plug that swivels around and plugs into the airport card. I tried tugging on it, but it seems like it is bolted on there.

I have an 'old' G4 Imac (usb 2.0) with a pretty sweet audio setup that I can hear throughout my house. I just ordered and old school clamshell ibook (se) mostly for writing papers on the go. but I was wondering if any one knows how I can use it as a remote control (over airport) to skip songs on my IMac. This must be possible somehow. I cant afford an airport express right now.

PowerPC :: IBook G3 Not Recognizing Airport Password?

Oct 19, 2006

I have a iMac G5 with an Airport Extreme Card installed and an Airport Express Base Station. I have set a password on it and it is working fine on my G5.

I also have a G3 Clamshell iBook with OS 10.3 on it and an Airport card installed there. In my last home, it was able to connect to a default network without problem, but I have never been able to connect it to the same network as my G5. I enter the password and it says thet the password is not recognized. I have since moved into a new house and the only network that shows up is the one from my house (no default anymore and I can't get access to the internet.

I know the card is working since it picked up the default in my last place, but am wondering what I can do to get it to recognize the password. Should I reset the Airport Express. Do I need a more current version of OS X to run it than the OS 10.3 (I haven't updated the software as I just installed OS 10.3 from OS 10.2 last night and didn't have the connection to be able to do a software update - I could just plug it into the ethernet and do it if I need the update.

I don't want to leave it without a password. We are the only people right now in a new sub division but there will be people moving into the area soon that I don't want jacking my internet service.

PowerPC :: IBook Airport Connects But Has No IP Address?

Jan 9, 2008

iBook G4 shows that the airport has full connectivity (full bars) yet it doesn't connect and states that there is no IP address. The iBook connects using its internal airport to a Netgear Router. There is a PC that runs windows that is connected to the cable modem. For a month or so both computers were able to access the internet simultaneously. All of a sudden the computers are unable to access the internet at the same time. When I attempt to connect at the same time my Mac gives me an error stating that another IP is in use and so I can't connect.

How can I give my iBook an IP address so that both computers can be online at the same time?
