I have a new MacBook with 10.4.8.
I have a Linksys WRT54G Router.
The problem ->
I cannot connect to the internet wirelessly or through Ethernet with my MacBook and the router. The uninterrupted cable modem to MacBook connection is fine.
1. I have tried manually entering IP address, Subnet Mask, and Router address copied from an iBook that was succesfully connected by ethernet cable. I cannot connect through the ethernet cable with the MacBook.
2. I have 'connected' to my password-protected wireless network. The Airport bar is full. It says: "Status: Connected." In network preferences, I get green lights. But when I open web browsers or other apps, I get 'You are not connected to the internet.'
3. If you believe this is a hopeless situation. Could you recommend a router that is not LinkSys, relatively inexpensive, and known for working well with both PCs and Macs (I have to connect two PCs and a Mac, all wierelessly, in my home).
