Connecting my iMac G3 to the internet.
Idk what else to do!
I wish it was just as simple as plug and play. I only had it connected to the internet once and that was at my brothers house.
Any help?
Bought it December of last year. I was getting so frustrated its giving me a headache!

No one can help you unless you provide more details on what you are using to connect to the internet. Try again.

A ethernet cable? What else would I use in this day and age lmao.

It is.
Unless your router/ modem is jacked up, cable bad, nic port bad, etc.
Cable is good works fine in my ps3. However my router has custom firmware on it.

There are a number of ways to connect your iMac to the network.

What OS are you running? Is your iMac getting an IP address from your router or is it self assigning an IP address? Does your mac even show an ethernet cable is connected to it?
