      Trouble with a wireless adapter on a Mac

      Hi

      Can anyone offer any advice, please?

      I've just bought a LogicPro LP-54G-MAC USB adapter, to access Sky Broadband on a G3 iMac, running OS 10.3. I installed the driver but I can't get the computer to connect to the router.

      When I try to configure the settings, I'm asked for the server address, account name and password; the latter two I've got but I can't find the server address. I called the Sky helpline, who were about as much use as a chocolate teapot. All they kept telling me to do was "purchase a standard adapter".

      Has anyone run into this before and, if so, can you help, please?

      Thanks
      Matt

      Have you tried entering the router address, 192.168.0.1 as the server address? That is the server the adapter is using.

      Have a look through these reviews, there are a few pieces of advice which may be of assistance.
