    iMac 20, Intel Dual Core 2.3GHz, 1Gb RAM, 256Mb Video; G4 tower 444Mhz w/ 1G RAM, 2x G3 towers
    iMac and Linksys wireless
    I was using a linksys wireless with broken antenna to connect my imac and g4. but after i got my iphone, i wanted to start using my wifi ( silly me) well, I had no antenna, but a friend had a wireless that he was using just as a wired router. so we traded and now I've got a wireless. take it home and start setting it up, i follow the directions on the linksys site. router works great but my imac won't connect if i set up wep or wpa. i know nothing about this stuff so i' lost here... what can i do to ger some encryption in there??

    And don't bother calling Linksys - already done that - as soon as you tell them you have a Mac, their response is "We don't support Mac's", even from their supervisor's.
    I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
