    I just got a Tibook and I want to be able to connect to the internet at my girl friend's house. They have Road Runner and are using a Linkseys router to network their PC's. I tried just connecting an ethernet cable to the router, I couldn't get on the interent. I did see that their router was giving me an IP address, yet I couldn't browse the internet. I know there is nothing wrong with my Tibook cause I connect with Road Runner at my apartment. Am I doing something wrong? Is there some setting I have to enable, or is there more work involved? Please help, this is my first Mac and I find myself not know of what to do...

    Try rebooting your TiBook with the ethernet cable pugged in.

    If that doesn't do it, they could be running PPPoE. but if it's a cable modem, this seems unlikely (and you most likely wouldn't get an IP addy).

    Just try rebooting with the cable plugged in.

    And / or try rebooting the linsys router.

    its usually plug and play, sicne you are gettin an ip it sounds like a dns error. make sure he doesnt have any dn server numbers entered.
