Have just had my ADSL turned on (yesterday) and have my PC up and running through my DG834 no probs. However, my mum has an iMac (of which I know very little about) and i've gone through the , very unhelpful, manual, tried the help and done a search online to try and get it to use the built in ethernet port but to no avail.

The router light for my PC is on, the router light for my mums mac flash on and off every 20 seconds or so. I don't know if i'm still supposed to go to internet connection thingy to get online or if it's just like a PC where you go straight to the browser.

It's using DHCP as is the router, everything else is empty on the mac. But I just keep gettin an error that there's no connection.
QUOTE Thanks
