Aiport problem on home network

Hi All

First time at this forum - indeed a long time since I've needed help with anything relating to OSX, but here goes.

I run a desktop G3 as an airport base station with an airport card in it. Two other machines are also card enabled (not extreme) in the house. This system has run flawlessly until I converted the base station to Panther.

Now none of the machines can get an IP from the base station, they just self assign (and thus canot access the internet) . Any ideas?

One of the machines is an iBook and it visits a business with an extreme base station set up (was the garden variety base station until very recently) and has had no problems either before the extreme conversion or after accessing the internet/network as soon as I walk in the door.

I am having no trouble getting filesharing between the computers.

Any tips gratefully received.

Fixed it!

Sorry to do this - but it fixed itself - if that is possible! I do not know in the years since 1984 when I first started using macs, how many times this has happened, but it always amazes me.

Has anyone else had initial issues with the 10.3 installation?

Did you happen to upgrade your Panther to 10.3.2? It fixes a lot of DHCP/Network stuff. I had problems with 10.3, and many others have had similar problems...I hope Apple fixed the problems.
