I have a probem with a friend's (old) iMac running OS X 10.4.11, his router was hit by electrical surge. The modem, router were replaced by local provider. The router ip is 192.168.1.1 but can not connect to this wifi after hit. I was able to connect it to my secondary wi-fi which is 192.168.2.1 (belkin router). If I try to connect it to my primary wi-fi (linksys) 192.168.1.1 it fails. I have cleared all preferred networks from preferences\network\airport\preferred networks. I believed the ethernet got fried in the surge, since I have not live connection on primary or secondary wi-fi when using wired port. Airport will only connect to 192.168.2.1.
Has anyone ever experienced this before? and if so can you please give me some feedback to clear this connection issue. The iMac works great besides this issue. Hate to have him junk it...
Thank you in advance!
