I have had a Linksys router for several years now with both my PC desk top and my lap top. Recently I bought a G 5 Mac and I can not get it to connect to the router even by ethernet cable. How do I set my Mac IP adress to work with the router?

what do you mean by "can't connect"? Have you tried to go to the router IP from your mac when it is plugged in? Can you successfully ping the router from terminal?
