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?

Mac OS X 10.5.6 is correct.
Mac9,1 model? is that correct? where would I find the model? under "About this mac"?
How would I test the ethernet port?

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