New to Mac
Posted on 2003-03-07
I just bought the new G4 powerbook with the 12" screen. I have 2 PC's at home,both connected to the internet through a Belkin 4port Router and a cable modem.What i am trying to figure out is HOW to set up the Mac to connect throught the router to the Internet.I am NOT concerned with sharing files with the PC'S really,as my wife uses them strictly for her at home business, while I need the Internet access for MY work.Can Ya'll help? and DO i have to have file sharing enabled? Also I JUST downloaded OS X 10.2.4 and all the other new downloads So I am current with the software. I am just confused on HOW to get onlive Via the router, and will the WINXP systems screw things up.Also will I need to re-configure the router? the PC'S connect just fine and have been connected that way for many months.
Also while on the road for my company I have to use a DIAL UP connection.Is there a way to set it all up so that i can use the cable modem/router combo at home,the dial up on the road, and NOT have to manually change everything?
