Welcome aboard! The Airport will allow something like 50 users at once. Which model Airport? What cards are in the G4s? Different models used b or g speed. Are any of your machines hard wired?

Thanks for the reply. I may be a bit slow when it comes to the networking side of macs... but anyway, none of them are hard wired. I'm really confused because all 3 laptops will connect to a random signal no problem, but not with my connection...

Is your router set to put out both b and g signals? Could explain why the G4s aren't working.

What IP address does the G5 get? What IP addresses do the G4s get?
