Ok - well, it does.... just not all the time Sometimes when I pop open my PowerBook (most notably at places with "free" internet; ex. airports, coffee shops, etc.) the network will go through the usual thing and I'll join up to it - but I won't be able to get on the internet. When I open safari it says "server can't be found" or whatever it does, and its not just safari, other apps don't work as well. I've used iStumbler to try and help and to check there is no WEP - even it says that there is no WEP and when I click join iStumbler looks like all is well, but no internet. AND when I check the network sys pref pane it has a little green button next to airport, saying it is connected to the internet when it really is not? hmmm... interesting.... It works fine at my house (airport basestation), friends (link sys), school (?), and the apple store - just not always? Arg! So confusing to explain! I'm running 10.3.5 and my setup is in my sig - Please help I am STUMPED!
