I recently inherited an ibook G4 from my dad. He mentioned that he had some problems connecting to the internet via wireless and replaced the wireless card. Apparently, this didn't help, so he assumed the problem was a weak signal. I am picking up wireless from my upstairs neighbors, who have wireless capability through their cable internet. (i don't really understand all this, so I hope I'm explaining things right.)
Anyways, I am running OSX and my browser is Firefox. My dad cleaned up the laptop before giving it to me, so I don't think there any viruses or anything on it.
Google, gmail, yahoo, g-rad.org, and idealist.org are the websites I go to the most. Generally, these open ok. Other websites cause an error that says, Problem Loading Page. Occasionally, I'll get this error message with google and other frequent-use sites. I can refresh or re-search and that sometimes gets the website to go through. It all seems very random though.
I spoke with a friend about this, and he said it could have something to do with my computer's allowable search parameters or something (?) I don't know if this is the case, or how I can fix it.
Hope you can help. Thanks, Bfly
