My MBP connects just fine to my home network, but now I am in a ski house for the weekend, and it will not connect to the ISP. It says it is connected to the network though. I am currently connected with an ethernet cable that goes into the wireless router and then it sees the ISP, but not wirelessly. I dont get it, any answers?

No, it is connected to the network when i do the password, but the internet does not work. The ISP cannot be found or something. Well I can deal with a network cable attached to my MBP for the weekend...

yea it actually is. The funny thing is, my router at home is also a linksys and looks exactly the same but it connects to that easily and works great.

There is something wrong with the firmware in them. Well atleast you can use it wired right?

Try setting your Airport settings to DHCP, that way it'll obtain the IP/DNS automatically.
