    Hi, I just had a call from a friend who has recently got a g5 imac, but is still running Panther, and is trying to connect to the cable connection that her housemate has set up.

    She is being asked for a "DHCP Client ID". I told her I think this is a password that needs to be gotten from her ISP, but I'm just really looking for confirmation of that...:confused:

    Thanks in advance for the advice!!

    Open up internet connect and use that app to connect to the internet. You should really only need user-name and password. Just mess around with that app and see what happens.

    Found this:

    Just whatever you do, don't use the CD that came with your isp. I got one from telstra and spent hours with no success. Then I just used internet connect. PS, The network pane in system preferences might be of some help too.
