well my router decided to give up so I ended up just plugging my ethernet cable into the side og mt powerbook. well all was well for a few days, but when I got home from out of town I wasn't able to gwt a signal. I went into my network connections and it says I'm connected via ethernet cable and even gives me my i.p. address, but I can't opeb up any pages what so ever.

what gives?

any help would be greatly appreciated since I'm having to write this message on my dang treo.

Are you on DSL or cable modem?

Are you saying you have your PowerBook connected directly to the cable/DSL modem via ethernet?

If so, the first thing I would check would be to make sure all the appropriate lights are on-- you have signal from the cable company, etc.

If you're on DSL, you may have to connect the modem through PPoE to the DSL provider. This is a script that runs that provides a login/password combination.

A little more info will help us troubleshoot. Let us know!
