I think my ethernet is going out in my PPC G5 powermac. Wireless works fine but when I hook up the ethernet cable, it loses connection almost immediately.<br><br>I don't have another cable handy (my basement is all wired up, but it runs behind the walls and I don't want to set the mac up there yet) so I can't tell if it's the cable or card.<br><br>Anyone know of a PCI-X ethernet card for the powermac?<br><br>
I'd be suspicious about the cable - some brands are more prone to failure than others. The next step would be to perform a hard reset of your router, trash all your Locations and network related prefs and start anew.<br><br>- alec -
Seems rather harsh to do.<br><br>I'll try a new cable but the router should be fine since the iMac and phone are performing with no problems and the locations/network prefs are fine since airport works ok with it.<br><br>
Ok, got the wire. nothing on Leopard or Tiger.<br><br>Reset the wireless router, that worked. huh...weird.<br><br>Testing wired versus wireless:<br><br>Wired<br><a href="http://www.speedtest.net"></a><br><br><br>Wireless was 8288 down, 926 up.<br><br>
