I have a hub with the iBook and the PC connected and following the intructsions in the OSX: The missing Manual i did for a period of 5 minutes have them both networked, it found the PC without my help, i was infact typing in the IP address as it found it. When i made the connection i then wanted to transfer some files over which i did, halfway through the transfer quit and ever since then the iBook has never managed to get the connection back. I'm at a loss as what to do next, anybody with some help? The IP address of the PC is 192.168.0.2 with a subnet mask of 255.255.255.0 and as i said the iBook worked the first time and the iBook was running 10.2.1, since then i have formatted and i am now on version 10.2.6 (i did try it with 10.2.5). This PC does still connect with other windows machine through the hub so i'm thinking something is wrong with my mac but since i've only had it 2 months i'm not that well versed as of yet. Any help is welcome.
