powerbook g4 wireless issues
for some reason when i use my linksys wrt54G wireless router with my mac it would connect and then it would be very slow and then it would disconnect and then connect again. not sure what the issue is i updated the firmware on the router and the powerbooks wireless adapter with OSX tiger. would it be a connection with the router settings?

thanks you

Try connecting to the router with a cable and check for all the configurations on it, such as the DHCP addresses range, the signal strenght (if available) as well as the WEP used. Sometimes you can specify the WEP to use, to try set it to the most "unsecure" one to test the config. If this works, you can try setting a more strong configuration.
There is a trick on the Airport that can help, sometimes when working with wireless and WEP connections, you have to type the WEP password on the mac with a $ simbol at the beginning to make the connection, dunno if this is the case but you can try.

Hope this helps ! =)
