    Hi everyone,

    This morning i have discovered at wake up that i have no internet connexion, my provider cannot come before thursday next week. So i need a work around solution to my issue.
    i have no problem to share my smartphone connexion using wifi on the powerbook. For the x5000 i have no wifi card so i need another way to share. i have tried directly using usb it works on fienix but not on morphos.
    Any idea ? Maybe it is not possible ?

    thanks
    additional question which wifi card can i use on the x5000 ?

    Dunno if MorphOS can do it but Mac OSX on the Powerbook can forward your Wifi connection via Ethernet with internet sharing.

    I guess you should buy a compatible PCIe WiFi card or connect some wireless router through Ethernet and configure it to use your phone shared WiFi.

    I guess your best bet is a card proven to work with PowerMac G5 PCIe:

    A little, relatively cheap travel router or WAP is handy for times like these. They either connect phones, dongles, or insert SIMs, or all of the above, and usually have an ethernet connection.

    Even better to have that functionality in your main router itself, so you can use the phone as a backup connection. Many routers do allow this. Check yours: if it has a USB socket, then it might do too.

    Although as a warning: compatibility is be heavily dependent on the phone manufacturer (Apple in particular hate their users being able to do useful things) and the cellphone provider. Many providers specifically ban tethering and will send you angry texts.

    Also as a warning: it is REALLY easy to go over your data limit and cost yourself a small fortune when tethering.

    Can be used as bridge from your mobilephone-Hotspot to ethernet.....

    How should this help with a WiFi-less X5000?

    The PowerBook can share the phone's data connection via WiFi to the X5000 through an Ethernet cable.
    1.67GHz 15" PowerBook G4, 1GB RAM, 128MB Radeon 9700M Pro, 64GB SSD, MorphOS 3.9

    2.7GHz DP G5, 4GB RAM, 512MB Radeon X1950 Pro, OSX 10.5.8, 500GB SSHD, MorphOS 3.9

    Thanks, makes sense. I somehow managed to read over the part where he mentioned his PowerBook ;-)

    That's why you can and should have a dual boot system in the first place: to complement MorphOS with the emergency tools and usability that comes with billions of use hours ... and $.🤪
