Just got wireless internet and I have a few questions.

1. If I am on my PC is there a way to check if my imac is using the wireless internet?

2. My wifi dies at moments and I lose connection. Can I run dial up and wifi at the same time so if my wifi dies out I can run dial up without losing a internet connection?

2. My PS3 can't find my wifi is there a way to use my imac as a relay because my imac is 3 to 4 meters away from my imac?

Thank you in advance for any help you guys can provide.

well I have connected my imac with wireless internet then plugged in a ethernet cable from my imac to my PS3. My PS3 finds my wireless IP address but it cant find a connection it says DNS error 80710102. Not sure what that means but it has become a pain in my side. anyone know how to fix this?

If you want to go down the internet connection sharing route:
Have you enabled internet sharing in the Sharing Preferences panel on your imac?

Alternatively:
If you post a little more detail about your wi-fi router (make model etc) I may be able to discover why your PS3 can't connect to the wireless network.

External hard disk acquisition addict - but admitting the problem is the first step to a robust backup

Looking at the box it came in will probably give you a bit of a clue as to the name of the company and the model number

It sounds like a large-scale Wi-Fi deployment. Do you connect to it by using the wireless connection on your Mac?

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

Alright I moved my PS3 into another room where I can get the wireless. Everything was good and I was downloading at an average of 130 kbps. Then one day my wireless signal grows weak and download speeds have gone down to 30 KBPS I looked outside to check the weather and it was a nice sunny day with a slight breeze but nothing to disrupt my connection. That was a week ago and my speed has not gained any and my wireless cuts out a lot which is frustrating since I play in online gaming tournaments.

Anyone know what's going on because when I call my ISP they don't help at all.
