    You can't get the music off your iphone and onto a different computer. I assume you had itunes on your old PC? If so, you need to take the itunes library from the PC and bring it onto the mac. Then from itunes import the songs you copied over.

    Since the iPhone logs onto iTunes the way every other iPod does, you should be able to use any of the regular programs (Senuti, et al) to rip the music :^)

    Is it finding the wireless network (when you click on the bars on your top bar, is there a network name?)?

    Is it an error when you click on that name to connect?

    ...specifics?

    I use music rescue... it works great but for the free version it asks you to register every 50 songs. It still works perfectly though!

    for the wifi issue, you may need to adjust what channel the router is broadcasting on. I used to have the same problem on my network as well. Change it to channel 11.

    maybe there is another wireless device interfering with the wifi signal? My cordless phone interferes with my wifi signal when someone is using it, and I have to hardwire my internet connection until they are off the phone. I'm picking up some new phones today during the Boxing Day sales to solve that problem.

    Try disconnecting your router and powering it back up again. It could be a channel issue as mentioned above, but maybe the router just needs to be reset so it will play nice.

    In terms of your iTunes library, were you able to solve that one?

    For some software, check out: www.bestmacsoftware.org, www.osx.hyperjeff.net/Apps, www.osx.iusethis.com, www.pimpmysafari.com, http://www.apple.com/downloads/dashboard/, www.versiontracker.com/macosx, and www.leopardtricks.com

    Obviously, there are many more sites you can check out too.

    Hope that helps....
