I just had my cable modem installed and was really pumped... until I tried to hook my G3 up to it. I plugged it in (yes, the right port) and went into the internet settings, but I couldn't configure it properly because it doesn't work.<br><br>I'm running OS X on a G3. How do I set this puppy up?<br><br>Thanks in advance for the help.<br><br>
Assuming you have the cable modem hooked up via Ethernet from the modem to the Enet port on the back of the Mac, here are some steps that *may* help (I say may, because every ISP is different, and I don't know if you are using an ethernet connection or a USB one. If you're using USB, get an ethernet cord because USB cable modems have a habit of not working)<br><br>The first thing you do is open the "Network Prefs Pane." Where it says "Show:", select "Ethernet" (again, providing you are using an ethernet cord to connect the two) - also, in the same menu, select "Network Port Configurations", when the list comes up, drag the ethernet one to be first, and modem to be second (even turn off modem if you aren't using the built in modem for anything else)<br><br>Next, where it says "Configure:", select "Using DHCP" (Unless you payed extra for a static IP address).<br><br>Leave everything else blank.<br><br>Restart your computer.<br><br>It should be working, if not, give the cable company/ISP a phone call or check out there website for more info.<br><br><br>Visit Me At My .Mac Site

Thank you. I'll give that a try.<br><br>I am using the ethernet connection; not the USB port.<br><br>As a side note, I wish you would change that gif you put in your posts. It's way too sexy and every time I see it I want to ask you out on a date. hehe<br><br>
