I'm trying to connect a first generation iMac w/OS 9.2 to an existing Comcast network through a Motorola SB4220 modem and a Linksys BESFR41 router on a Gateway computer with Windows NT.
Each method I try ends up with a dead end. Linksys will not answer e-mailed questions.
The web address is not reachable.
The resetting of the Network Connections TCP/IP section in the PC does not match available windows/buttons/instructions.
Apple offers no help and I have no plug and play connections as Linksys boasts.
I have checked the internet and have not found usable solutions.
Any help?

I may have misunderstood, but is your PC configured with a static IP in the class C 192.168.1.xxx range as well as the same subnet mask?

If not, that is most likely why you cant reach the router.

I am assuming you already checked your NIC and cat5 cable....
