    I'm staying in a hotel where Wifi is not available in the rooms. There is an Ethernet cable and I'm able to connect to the Internet with it using my work laptop (PC running Windows) but when I connect my Macbook, it SAYS that it's connected with an IP address and everything (detected automatically) but it won't actually load any pages, etc...

    I've deleted all of the "locations" in my Network Preferences, restarted numerous times, etc... and the diagnostics assistant tells me that it's working normally - but for whatever reason, it just won't actually load any pages (using FireFox or Safari).

    Anyone have any ideas?
