What's a air port card¿????????

DigitalRickochet says:

i have a black g3 it has curved sides it must be an erliar model and i can't find where to put the airport card

Dave Mac says:

Apparently Airport is only WEP encryption, so it will not connect to the common WPA encrypted networks (hence wrong password errors).
Try changing your homerouter to WEP encryption or like me try and see if there is a better Airport card. (not found one yet)

@macunwired, Please help me! i got an ibook g3 today, and installed the airport card, but when i click on internet connect, it does not show my home network, or any other networks, listed. I am positive that there are at least 4 networks in range, but none are listed.

@thatmusicjunkie I bought a G3 clamshell from ebay and the airport kept rejecting my password until I updated the software to 10.3.9 then it worked like a dream!!

Hi I have an Apple iBook (G3 500MHz). It picks up all the wireless signals through the vicinity, but I cannot actually "get online". I've scoured the interwebz in search of help, but have found myself coming to youtube for the real help. I heard that I may have to do something with the TCIP/IP settings, but have already messed with that. It is not picking up an auto DHCP ip address and the computer is basically talking to its self. PLEASE help me.

Thanks in advance.

@george1001001 Your totally right. Thanks for pointing that out.

@NailsBeautiful The WiFi you have in your house will work fine! It does not need an Apple WiFi.

Where can I find an airport card for a g3 ibook?

"and your done"

you're = you are. your = possessive form.

josue giron says:

hey i need help with my ibook it has the airport antenna pluged in all the way and it has all of the wireless bars but when i try to get in the internet it says that the server is not found please reply ASAP THANKS

EliteMacTechs says:

Make sure the airport card antenna is plugged in. It sounds like the antenna is not plugged into the card all the way (the antenna is the black wire you plug into the card).

Thank You!! I just set up my Airport card on my new (used) G3 and it works great. Awesome video! Thank you sooooo much!

Hi very good your video, I need to know if you can help me, I received an iBook A1007. Which has no power source. I could spend what tension and polarity on the connector to see if I can adapt a 24Vdc source I have. Thank you. Marcelo.

Dude i just baught my air port card and i was gonna disassemcle my computer from the back…but something told me too look this up on youtube and i found u…thanks man..i would have ruined my g3 if it wasnt for u

EliteMacTechs says:

make sure you have the newest driver for the USB device… I have found those USB dongles to be nothing but trouble… but they will work!

cameracreations says:

i have a usb one and my g3 laptop has the program for using wireless byuilt in the panther but i installed the cd and yet it doesnt show anything when i plug in the card why? its work on my xp and vista

EliteMacTechs says:

The airport card can not be switched. Neither can the RAM or the optical drive… you can switch out the hard drive!

adventuresofjr says:

This is great! Question for you… I have a iBook G3. I also have an iBook G4 that has a broken screen. I'm interested in taking some hardware from the G4 and upgrading the G3. Is this possible? Mostly, can I take the airport card from the G4 and put it in the G3? Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

Pietro Ruiz says:

thank you man video helped me alot

EliteMacTechs says:

No adapter is needed… just the airport card. The only computer that needs an adapter is the iMac G3.

EliteMacTechs says:

Thank you so much! Glad the video helped.
