Hello, as far as I've seen there were a few posts about AirPort installation and such things on the board, but I still didn't see anything that would combine all the puzzle pieces in my head... My friend in the US wants to be able to get online w/ his Mac G4 (uses System 9 still) - a wireless Belkin router is already set up and works well w/ the other computers in the house - he got an AirPort card for his mac and installed it properly it seems, since a) there is already an Airport link in the apple menu and b) because Belkin shows up on the list Now the problems: -my friend chose Airport in the TCP/IP window but still needs to 'manually' provide the IP address otherwise it won't link. (...I thought the mac would receive the subnet-mask & ip-address automatically from the router...) -also, whatever settings he put on there, it wants to automatically dial-up to earthlink, which is his old provider. It keeps tying to dial out. What does he need to do? There's unfortunately no manual & I can't send him any pdf's since he can't get online... Whew. Any help or ideas? Thank you.
