    Hi Guys. I have a trusty old G3 iMac 500 DV. Been running on a router to a cable modem for years with a pc. Got rid of the PC and got a new (power pc)Imac G5 .....brill. However the G5 didnt like my router. Got rid of that, got an airport extreme base station off ebay and an airport card and adapter for the G3. all set up, perfect. Want to set up computer to computer network, have got the G3 visible on the G5 and can download stuff from it, can see the G3 as a drive through the finder windows, include run programs etc. But viewing the same network I created on the G3, I cannot see the G5 through the same method, it appears to be connected to my named network but I cannot access anything, would like to swap files etc. the G3 is on 10.2.8 and G5 on latest Tiger. it must be something simple eh?

    Have you turned on the G5's Sharing in Network (System Preferences)?
    Also check Appletalk is on.

    Good luck,
