    I have cable modem hooked up to my G5 and airport extreme. I also have a g4 powerbook w/ airport card and it connects to the internet effortlessly. I also have a PC (Dell) in the house with a Linkys wireless setup. At first, it took a while to get everything up and running on the PC--but then, after it worked for a while it went down and now I have no clue as to how I can get it working again. I need help because the PC was brought solely to use the internet and now it just sits there.

    So the Mac still gets on the 'net but the PC doesn't? Have you tried unplugging your modem/router for a minute or so and plugging them back in to reset some of your network settings? Can you think of any changes you've made to the hardware or software of the setup recently that may have caused this? :)
