I have always have issues with windows at some point regarding error codes. Is this common with MAC OS. I don't own one yet but my plan is to get one. Currently I get and error code 651 almost always when using the net daily.

Error Code In Windows 7 Home Premium
When attempting to connect to the internet via a DSL GNET Modem using PPPoE. When I attempt to connect to the internet I get Error Code 651: The modem (or other connecting device) has reported an error. I was wondering of this error is seen on Mac also.

System Overview:

Toshiba Satellite Notebook
AMD Phenom (tm) II N870 Triple Core Processor
2.30 GHZ
64 Bit OS

All operating systems return errors in some conditions. However, the error codes on one system do not necessarily match up.

*NIX systems have common error codes due to the framework at the low level.

If you tried the same modem with OSx it would possibly work or would possibly give an error, but I doubt it would be the same number.
