    Specs:
    Macbook Black 2.0GHz C2D- 120GB/2Gb * Mac Mini G4 1.42GHz- 80GB/512MB
    Was the computer hooked up to your DSL/cable modem and connected to the internet before you tried to set up the router?

    you want to install a router on the iMac?

    hi . i am a new user to imac and want to install router instead of using built in router.
    you want to install a router on the iMac, or setup it as WAP?

    i have a belkin wireless router and i can go through steps of running set up which checks my mac config...
    Mac or mac address config?

    ... then it asks how i connect to internet which is dhcp ethernet cable so that is checked but comes back cant create?
    can't create what? Routers establish connections based off information provided to it. Routers do not create connections - is this what you mean?

    ...so what am i doing wrong any help please
    I am confused, are you talking about installing software or setting up a "connection" to a wireless router, or set the iMac up as WAP and have other computer connect to it. Please explain better.
