Hello. I have a G4 12.1 and an Airport at work. The laptop used to find the home wireless connection just fine. But here recently, I can't get it to find it. I had this happen once before and finally figured it out...but didn't take any notes. I am certain that this is the same sort of problem, but for the life of me, I can't figure it out, as to whether it is a G4 setting issue, or the router at home (not a Mac Airport), etc.
The laptop does see my router at home, and the signal strenth looks goo, it just does browse or check email. I think it will even let me log into the desktop computer I have at home (a PC).

if your powerbook is able to see the desktop computer that means that your router,wireless connection is working...it could be an issue with the router not cycling the information to that ip address or their could be something wrong with the lease of that ip, try to assing yourself a new ip address within the router to see if that changes things or preform a reset on the router a simple reset and reconfigure can sometimes do it
also if you go into your sys pref's and you dont see a Route number in the network section that means that your not gettin access out basically. if your having troubles still give the manufactutor of the route...who knows there might have been a firmware update ro something to fix it...i know linksys never checks for the warrent info

Yes, nice of Linksys...I wish other companies were as easy to deal with. Cutting us off for tech support at 90 days, like Apple, is a hard bite to swallow...especially if you grew up with the early days of Apple and unlimited lifetime support!
