I have an iMac g3 (OS 10.2.8) and I just bought a used airport card with an adapter and installed it into my imac. the mac recognizes the card and is able to make connections with my ibook (OS 9.2) that is sitting right next to it. However, it is not able to connect to the linksys base station that is downstairs. It doesn't see the station in internet connect. When I try to type in the name of the network it just says that an error occured while trying to connect. There is no security on the base station yet, and my ibook is able to connect fine to the base station. I thought it might be a bad card, so I swapped it with a different airport card and it does the same thing. I also tried installing the airport card in my other g3 (OS 9.2) and it does the same thing...can see computer to computer networks, but not the base station. I haven't tested either of the airport cards or the adapter on a system that works, so maybe I just was unlucky with two bad cards or a bad adapter. Does anyone have any ideas what is wrong or what to do?
