is it possible/ easy to plug the mybook into the g4 and use it as a wireless modem? the idea is the g4 will live in the garage and act as a back-up to the back-ups and a workhorse for tedious tasks like ripping/compressing DVD's.
i can plug the mybook in to the ethernet port of my macbook and access all the features so i assumed yes. but when i tried the g4, it didn't work. the g4 is running panther (10.3.9), but i have a tiger disk that can be installed if that will make a diff? macbook runs latest leopard
((haven't been to the forum for a while. the last time it was mainly concerned with simple hacks/ing. it certainly seems the forum has led to far more advanced hacks. apolo's for regressing!))
