I'm not a total noob at this, but after this episode I think I should be. I have a Macbook Pro and I've had the standard problem of the wifi dropping in and out. I've learned to live with that. Then my entire network/internet would just stop working. Apple didn't help since I can't afford the extended warranty and they told me it was a OSX problem. Now, I cannot connect at all to the internet, not on the ethernet or wireless! (I think I must of done something but I don't know what) I have XP installed and everything works fine for me over there (ethernet and wireless) and even the Macbook Pro can see the network, get an IP and everything but will not connect. The problem is not with my cable moden or wireless router since my wife's Mini is chugging along fine. So I am at a loss. How can I reset the setting in my network?

OSX Leopard
