Yeah I was going to say the same thing about checking that the cards are seated properly. I had that problem with the first Airport card I ever installed. Now I know better. If that thing is not seated all the way, it ain't gonna work. <br><br>

Have you got the firewall enabled on the G5? If so it will block all ports unless specified and this includes http, ftp etc. So either disable the firewall on the G5 or allow the right ports http, ftp etc. For a list of ports visit:<br><br>http://docs.info.apple.com/article.html?artnum=106439<br><br>"For a successful technology, reality must take precedence over public relations, for Nature cannot be fooled." - Richard Feynman
