Urgent: iBook G4 WiFi connection
Posted on 2005-04-21
I'm pretty new to MACs as far as networking goes. We're currently at a hotel with a 802.11b WAP. I connected the PC (laptop that I'm currently using) without a problem, but when I use the Airport utility on the MAC (iBook G4 with integrated wireless running OS X) to scan for wireless networks I don't pick up on any.
1. Is there a different utility I should be using?
2. Will the G4 pick up on a 802.11b network, or will it only work on G networks?
3. I guess I feel a little lost. Am I doing the right thing by scanning for networks using the Airport utility?
FYI there is no WEP key. It is currently just a plain 802.11b internet connection. No firewalls or WEP keys or encryption to worry about.
If anyone has any more questions about my setup, please let me know.
