    Wireless Router problems with iMac G5
    Hello all, am new here.

    I've recently purchased a new G5 20" iMac, but have hit a snag trying to set up the internet.

    I'm using a D-link Dl-524 router and a D-link DSL-502T, followed all the instructions (they had instructions for setting up with a mac included).

    The network status says built in ethernet working, that I have an i.p and i'm connected to the internet, but the diagnostics say the internet isn't working, and ofcourse I can't get on to any websites.

    I need a username and password on my windows computer to connect to the internet, (which I do using just a normal DSL modem, this situation with the iMac is the first time i've tried to set up a wireless network too), so i'm thinking I need to use a PPoE connection, but there are no instructions on how to use this...

    Any help would be great.

    BTW the iMac and the iBook I bought were purchased a couple of weeks ago, they are my first macs as my family and I decided we were sick of windows...as so many people do!

    Does your DSL Modem have a PPPoE Dialer? What brand model is the modem? If not you set up the PPPoE in the DI-524. I have a DI-524 here. I can help if you need help setting it up.

    The Dlink DSL-502T is both a DSL Modem and Router. You can't use Two routers at the same time. You can use your Dlink DI-524 as a WiFi Access point to provide your Mac Internet Wirelessly. Still reading up on the DSL-502t.

    It sounds as though you have MAC filtering turned on in the router, so it isn't giving your iMac a regular IP address, but one like 169.x.x.x (I don't remember the other values). Turn MAC filtering off or, better yet for security, add your iMac's MAC address to your router (open Terminal, type in ifconfig en0 and write down the MAC address next to the word ether. It should be an alpha-numeric series of numbers and letters like: xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx.

    Wether I use the DSL-502T or not, I just need a way to network the i-mac and my i-book together wirelessly, with them both using the internet. Will this be possible?
