I have a power mac G4 and was recommended a USB Dongle to connect to wireless (at home).
I purchased a Sparklan Dongle - SparkLAN 802.11g Fast Wireless USB Adapter,
and had no problem installing it on my mac. It is compatible with OSX10.4 which I have.
However - it will not connect to my wireless router, which I have in another room and it's connected to a PC permanently. I'm not sure if this is the reason it won't connect to a Mac - however, I haven't had this problem before when I used all of this on another (older) mac.
The mac is not recognising the wireless at all - so I am unable to configure the internet settings manually.
I am getting an error message that the USB extension was not installed properly and needs to be configured - but I cannot do this.
I have re-installed the key, rebooted my computer and scanned for wireless devices several times.
I am unable to connect to the router via an ethernet as the router is in a different room, hence buying the key int he first place.
Can anyone help, I'm getting desperate! I seem to be not the only one with a similar problem when purchasing the Sparklan USB - but no one seems to want to help on Amazon's website.
