    Hi, Mac newbie here. I just got my new Macbook Pro today and I've been having issues trying to connect it to the internet. Currently the PC desktop uses LAN (2wire), the laptop doesn't find the connection automatically. I tried to do it manually but it tells me that the IP and Router address don't agree. I'm lost, any suggestions?

    If you could give us a little more information that would be great! What do you use for internet? Cable? DSL?

    Is it going through a router? Switch? Hub?

    Do you pay for a static IP address from your ISP?

    I use LAN for internet. And it goes through a router (2wire is the company I think). And yes, the IP address appears to be static.
