    Hi I'm a newbie to this forum so forgive me if the question has been answered before.

    I have an iMac ,that when the network (airport) is connected, the beach ball of death appears and will not let me do anything further. I have to do a hard reboot to get it back and quickly turn off airport or the network.

    Any solutions out there?

    Hello,

    -Which exact model iMac?
    -Mac OS X 10.5.6, not 10.5.8, correct?
    -Can you test the Ethernet port to see if it works?

    The computer seizes when I connect to the internet...beach ball of death!
    So testing the ethernet port could be difficult.
