Actiontec - This is the device that translates the DSL signal and has an antenna to provide a wireless internet connection.
Ethernet - is the cable that can supply a connection to the internet for this computer. My daughter needs the wireless to work.
Apple iMac - OS X 10.4.11
I changed the wireless transmitter's id and the iMac did not make the change.
There are controls in the upper RH corner that I have utilized but to no responce and it just comes up with, Authorization Failed
I am using the Air Port. I am using a 128k bit password.
Internet Connect: Authorization Failed - Pops up
The Actiontec wireless transmitter uses PPPOE
Please Help, Mr. Johnson
Can you clarify what is looking for PPOEO connection The Apple is looking for the PPPOE
Does this make anything more clear? There is pppoe and dhcp. we have pppoe for now.
what type of internet service - I have Qwest DSL. The signal comes in over the phone lines. 1.5 meg.
and the exact model of your DSL modem - I have the Actiontec GT701-WG. This supplies the wireless signal
and the Linksys router provides the extra ports for the desk top computers I have.
Should I not hold my breath. I asked for some help with my wireless iMac and the best you can do is Turn off all your equipment for 5 minutes and to ask questions.
Tell me would you be impressed? Mr. Johnson
