I have two older imacs g3 with Airport cards installed. What do I need to do to get them to recognize my linksys wireless connection. With my powerbook G4 it just picked it up right away.

Are there any tests that I can run? One has OSX 10.3.5 and the other is still 9.2.2


Any tips would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Are you broadcast in Mixed mode. Older Airport cards are 802.11b and newer AE cards are 802.11g. Mixed mode will allow both. If G only is sellected you will have problems.

I'm not positive but my guess is that your iMac running OS 9.2.2 is the one not recognizing the Linksys. You may have to upgrade to Tiger. I know nothing about Classic so I can't help you out there.
