Thread: A Few (more) questions...
05-23-2007, 07:08 PM #1A Few (more) questions...
So far the wireless on my MB has been nothing short of amazing! Trumps my old laptop by miles!
There happens to be a place in my house (my basement) that recieves very low to no wireless, which is to be expected as it is underground, surrounded by cement, and two floors below my wireless router...
anyways, there happens to be an ethernet cable for that exact purpose. But being the newb i am, I cant figure out how to get it to work. I turn off the wireless and I get nothing, and if I leave it on, I get a very low signal that makes web browsing almost impossible....
Its on the same network as the wireless.
I finally got around to installing XP via bootcamp (thru necessity...) but again I am having trouble with the network. It doesnt seem to recognize the wireless card, and doesnt see the ethernet cable either.
Thanks in advance!

I've got ethernet cables running from the basement to the attic in my house with no problems.
You should be able to turn off the Airport on your MacBook and just plug in the ethernet cable. Go to System Preferences -> Network. And you should see the Ethernet Connection as activeDon't forget to use the new User Reputation System
