I bought a used Powerbook G3 Lombard with both OS 10.3.9 and OS 9.2. I also have an Orinoco Silver Wi-Fi card that will only work (sort of) under OS 9. I can get a great wireless signal when I go to my local library but I can't get it to work with my web browser. I have an OS 9 supported Mozilla and icab.

Connecting thru a hard wired ethernet port on the back of my Lombard is no problem. I can use both Mozilla and icab.

Why can't I connect when I go wireless?
QUOTE Thanks

That's okay. I found a solution. I left my Powerbook in the middle of the street and bought a Dell laptop instead. No more wireless problems!
