    Just got my iBook home, turned on, set up.. and I'm having major problems connecting to my broadband..

    Plugged my ethernet into the side but i can't get on the net.. I'm not normally this stoopid, so any help would be appreciated..

    Thanks..

    I had problems aswell

    Try unplugging your Modem, then plug it back in after about 10 seconds

    Try the network connection assistant (applications> utilities (i think)), you should have a green light next to "network" & "isp"

    That worked for me

    Nevermind!

    Woooooo!

    I still can't figure out how to connect directly via my ethernet wire, BUT I just set my PC up with a router and connected my iBook EEEEASILY to that..

    Problem solved!

    :D
