hi all. i'm new to this forum and i just want to greet all of you. i have a question that maybe someone can help me with. i bought an iMac g4 out of nostalgia. it has a 1.25 ghz processor, 256mb ddr sdram, airport express card, a powerpc g4 processor and has os 10.4.11 installed. i do not in any way expect it to beat any current generation macs; i got it with the intent of having my kids use it to mainly surf the web. this is where my problems started. first of all, it would not connect to my home wifi network. i recently upgraded to xfinity's 150mbps download/10mbps upload package and i got around the problem for a while by using a new airport express base station and hardwiring the mac to it. it was fine at the start but after a day or so it started to crawl. bad. like speediest clocked its download speed to 2mbps bad. so bad that my kids won't even touch it, and it saddens me because it really is a wonderful work of art, and i would trade my own iMac for it if i am not using mine to edit my photos. it was intention from the start to upgrade whatever i can to keep it soldier on and that is how i found myself in this forum. i'd like to get your advice on where to start, what components to upgrade first (and maybe the best place to buy them) and how to go about modifying settings or hardware to enable the old girl to run with the net. any advice would be greatly appreciated. salut!
