    I just bought a new Linkysys WRT54GS V.6, and it won't connect to my iMac Core Duo at all. I also want it to be directly connected because of my x-box that needs to get on live. If anyone knows what I can do, it would be much appreciated.:eek: :(

    Connecting wired or wirelessly?

    If wirelessly, is your iMac seeing the router with name "linksys"?

    I'm trying to connect wired to my iMac. But when I do do it wirelessly, it comes up as linksys_ow_something...

    When wired, what is the network status of Built-in Ethernet in the Network pane of System Preferences?
