Old fart here that has been using a P.C. for past twenty years. Decided to try the Apple route and surprised myself with a new Mac for Xmas. So far I am pleased; however; I can't get it to connect to the internet. There is no normal connection available where I am. I'm at the mother-in-laws and she doesn't have a internet connection. ( It does show 4 or 5 secure connections from the neighbors ) I therefore tried tethering through my Iphone 4 ( this is how I am connected to the internet now via my PC laptop ) and it doesn't show a thing on the Mac. About all I get is a chime indicating that I have connected a device. I tried through the Blue tooth connection; I did get the two paired and seeing each other; but no internet connection. I also have a internet stick ( Novatel Broadband2Go ) that I tried; it loaded itself unto the Mac; but I was not able to get a connection. ( I do know that it was mentioned in the setup for this stick that there are some special settings for a Mac to be made; just haven't researched yet today to see what those could be !) I also have a USB adapter that I use on my PC for boosting the WiFi signal. When I plug this into the Mac; Nothing; not a beep; or a light on the adapter to show that it is connected. What could I be doing wrong???
