Mac mini G4, and Airport express 802.11n wifi 4th generation
I bought an old G4 in good condition, has airport built in. It is also 80GBHDD, and is running Leopard 10.5.8. Has 1GB ram.
Anyway is good working order when plugged into Ethernet straight from modem, but I cant get it to pick up the Airport express 802.11n Wi-Fi 4th generation, that was given to me.
Am I right in guessing that this should run of the modem Ethernet cable, instead of both of them being plugged in. Sorry rephrase that. I should only have one cable going from router to Airport, and not two, or what's the point. It says all set up and has green light, but will not pick up internet.
Also I wanted to ask, is there any point in having this Airport express 802.11n Wi-Fi 4th generation. If I decide to get rid of the mac mini, as it cant be used for streaming. I have newer mac devices, and was going to use mac mini for a server, but not much of a TV server.
I do not know what to use the Airport for, as I have fibre optic and that seems to be fast, and picks up all my new macs.
Any ideas what I can use it for as I am new to these, and also how to get it working if possible on G4 tried everything.
Really sorry for long question.
Ist dies eine gute Frage?
