Bob,

The exact message: "If you turn on this port, your internet provider might terminate your service to prevent you from disrupting its network." I'm trying to use an ethernet cable from one ethernet port to the other computer's ethernet port. Actually, I just realized that the iMac is using airport as the receptor of the wireless UVerse signal from downstairs. What in the world would using ethernet ports from one computer to the other have to do with Airport???

Something tole me that I din't need to use a crossover ethernet cable between the two, but I do have one if that's not built into the G4--but I think it is. I don't want internet access for the G4, I just want to be able to access it from the "new" iMac.

Is this enough info?

Dan,

The problem can come in when you have Internet sharing turned on. If it's turned on and you're sharing the connection over the same port. I wouldn't think you'd get the error since you're using Airport to get the U-Verse signal and you're connecting the iMac to the G4 via Ethernet.

However, if you have Internet Sharing turned on for the iMac, is there any reason you can't turn it off? Is the iMac legitimately sharing its Internet connection with any of your other Macs?

Anyway, here's a short technical note from Apple on this. Mac OS X 10.5. Help: Sharing your Internet connection
