    Hey everyone, I purchased a WET54G in order to connect my PowerMac G4 to the internet at home, where I have a wireless router.

    So far, I've been able to get the Powermac to communicate with the rest of the network in order to use file sharing and iTunes streaming. However, I cannot get it to go out to the internet, despite the fact that I can connect to the router that controls the DSL modem. Can anyone give me any help?

    Currently here are the settings:

    Powermac G4:
    Configured manually (Autoconfiguration does not work correctly)
    IP Address

    RET54G Router
    IP Address
    Automatic DHCP Configuration

    Whenever I plug in a windows machine, the gateway works as advertised and I go straight out into the internet. I must be missing something when I put the settings into the Mac computer. Any suggestions for something i might have overlooked would be appreciated

    Okay, I figured it out finally. Anyone who has this problem, go into the Bridge configuration page, go to the advanced tab and turn on MAC Cloning.
