    Hey gang, I bought a iMac from ebay its an old model(the one with the oval base, I think iMac powerpc G4) well, I don't know where should I start. for starters my internet connection is in another room how do I get my internet working wirelessly on my desk thats in another room.
    Remember, I've been using a laptop for years so I'm new to the Mac functions. Can someone help me out on getting started? I'm running 10.4 tiger OS

    It's not that hard to get used to. Maybe start by downloading some applications.

    And did you have wireless that worked with your laptop?

    Well did you get internet on your laptop without using a direct connection (an internet cord plugged in) ?

    I've been using my laptop without a cord. I was able to connect from my router wirelessly.

    Ok, so if it worked for your laptop then it should work for you mac, if your mac can get wifi. Idk how old that mac is and if it can get wireless internet or not.
