We just got cable access and are setting up a wireless network. I'm more of a PC person, but my brother has an older g4 powerbook, with the titanium cover. I also just purchased a Netgear Rangemax and Aerocard Extreme at Fry's. So, here are my questions, and thanks for all your help! 1. Connecting from cable directly to the powerbook was no problem. Once I hooked up the router, the connection to the powerbook was a bit slower (My wireless connect via PC was great). Would this also happen on an Airport Base? Could the slowness (it's minor) be a result of the programs I tried to download to upgrade his system (more on that in a minute)? 2. Under "About This Mac," his O.S. says it is 10.1.5. Under the Airport Utility Program, the version is two point something. Under system preferences, the icon for OS 9.0 is there, but no icon for 10.1.5. The Aerocard literature says he needs OS 10.2.8 and Airport 3.1 minimum. So... How do I trust what program is actually running? 10.1.5 v. 9.0? How do I upgrade/migrate? I've downloaded the programs, but they don't seem to "take effect," on the Powerbook. Do I need to go step by step, or can I just upgrade to 10.2.8. Should I upgrade higher? Am I better off just taking the Powerbook in to a specialist and letting them upgrade it? 3. Does anyone perceive any problems down the line, using netgear vs. apple equipment, such as the router, print server, etc.? Thanks for your help!
