Ok, first of all, I searched a lot on google for information on this, and a lot on the Mac Rumors site but I had no luck finding what I wanted. Similear topics, but none that matched exactly what I was looking for. I currently have Road Road run through a Netgear GS605 Router. The connection works just fine on my PC, but I can't get the connection to work for my iMac G5. The message on my iMac is "Built in Ethernet is currently active. Built-in Ethernet has a self assigned IP address and may not be able to connect to the internet. So, I was wondering what my options were on this, besides calling Road Runner and paying more for a static IP address or something similiar to this nature (this apparently solves the problem for extra money?) I've already been tinkering around with network settings and am curious if I have the right IP address, subnet mask, and router address. Any help would be appreciated! It's hard when you get a brand new mac, think you'll be able to connect to the internet, and then a no go.
