Should I do a fresh install of tiger? If so, how is this done on an eMac?
Is it a second-hand Mac?
All you have to do is insert the Tiger installation disc and follow the instructions.
Ok, so I don't have to erase the HD first or is this process done after I insert the first disk?
It is optional I think. The install cd asks if you want to format using Disk Utility.
But always backup, even if you do want to try and not format and keep your data.
Yeah, I backedup so no probs there. I'm just thinking that a clean install would make the process smoother.
I just installed it but I think I'm going to have to do it all over again since some how I forgot to customize it before installing it, opting to not have the language packs, etc, etc.
However, I have a question. I cannot connect to the internet wirelessly even though airport says I'm connected.
On the network setup assistance I choose the " I use AirPort to connect to the Internet wirelessly." I then put my password and it tells me that " I'm now ready to try connecting to XXXXXXX...etc, etc...."
I hit enter and a window scrolls down telling me that I am unable to establish a network connection.
See pictures below
What is going on?
EDIT: I can connect to the internet but only through an Ethernet. How come I can't connect or access the internet wirelessly?
It can be any number of things, but mainly originating from the network settings, if i remember rightly, you should be able to get in beyond the IP address and change the router connection settings etc. Sometimes they try n figure it out for themselves but dont manage it successfully.. Also as always check that your internet is working in the firstplace
The internet is working since I can get on it via an ethernet cable.
