    I am having trouble connecting to the internet through the airport on my g4 powerbook. It was working fine yesterday and then I put my mac to sleep. When I woke it up it wouldn't connect. The status says that it's connected to the router and the router is working fine because my friends ibook's airport is working and my powerbook works with the router when I have it hooked up via ethernet cable. I think it's definitely a problem on my end. I've tried turning the airport on and off to no success. I also tried to ping a website and there were no sucesses out of the ten I sent. Anyone have a clue to what is going on? thanks

    I think you might have a setting conflict, where your AirPort and router are both distributing IP addresses, when only one device should. This can be fixed by opening up AirPort Utility and changing its settings so that it does not distribute IP addresses, and instead gets an IP address from your router.
