Okay I've been trying to figure this out for a few days now, and I'm totally stumped. I've searched and searched and nothing has worked.

I have a Powermac G4 running Leopard.

Modem->G4=perfect
Modem->Router->Ethernet->G4=FAIL
Modem->Router->Wireless->G4=FAIL

I have a "3rd party" airport card, but it is one of the PCI cards specifically built as "airport replacements".

My big problem is "SELF-ASSIGNED IP!!" I know there are threads all over, but none of them helped me.

(P.S.- I have tried power cycling many times over)

Thanks in advanced for your help,

GF

Is the driver for that PCI Nic installed in OSX? I have really never worked with the After Market NIC cards for powermacs.

I am wondering though if it's a driver issue? Does the card show up if you click on the Apple, About this Mac and More Info under Airport or under PCI?

Sure the router software is installed? And what router is it?

I don't believe it's a drivers issue-the PCI wireless card shows up as a "3rd Party Airport Card"

The router is a Linksys WRT54G and it connects perfectly to ALL the Windows machines in my house.
