Hello, I need help getting my G3 to hookup to internet, as this is my first experience with an apple comp. I just expected it to be recognized on my network through my D Link Router by plugging it in, and i thought it would recognize the network, like my laptop does.
Can someone who knows about these g3 (Its blue) HELP me?
THANKS DANIEL

How is your network setup? I'm going to assume that if you expected it to simply be setup, it's DHCP (this is most likely the case). What version of OS X are you running? Are you sure the network card works?

If you were able to plug in your network cable, you have a network card . Unfortunately, I can't help you with this one. Someone with more pre-OS X Mac knowledge is going to have to walk you through troubleshooting this one.

The only thing I can ask is this - when you plug in the network cable, does the network port light up or does a light near it light up?

Click on the Apple in the Top Left corner of the screen. Click on Control Panel. Then on TCP/IP. When that screen comes up look for a drop down menu and select Ethernet. On the Configure tab select DHCP or Using DHCP Server.

When you close the window be sure to click Save Settings. That should get the internet working at least. Plug it into a port on your router and give it time for it to get it's IP Address from the router. Some older Macs with OS9 I have worked with take a bit to get the IP.

If you need more help be sure to ask and let us know if this helps.

AppleTalk really is for networking with other Macs. The Internet does not use AppleTalk. I usually do set it on though since I have a lot of old Macs.
