ever since i installed leopard my internet connection has been flaky and now its just down. I called comcast and they said it should be working. I am posting this message from my Dash and i was just wondering if anybody else has had this problem.

How do you connect? WAN? LAN? Ethernet? USB?

having the same problem, my girlfriend and I have MBPs, mine was just upgraded to leopard, her computer (on tiger) is working fine on the ethernet connection, mine will not connect. in the network page it says that the ip is self assigned and may not be able to connect, by the way, we're on comcast too. it works fine on wireless through her computer.

right now I am on a neighbor's wireless network. I got my airport extreme out of the closet and plugged it up but my network will still not connect so I connected to another. I haven't really read about this being a huge issue with Leopard but i would imagine that it would be a pretty big deal if people were not able to connect to the internet.
