Here's the deal. I got my Macbook about 2 weeks ago, and connected it to my wireless router/modem. It worked flawlessly for a week. Then, on morning I wake up to realize my broadband connection isn't working. I'm connected to the internet, but not to SBC's servers. Neither the Windows Desktop (Base) will connect, my MB, or Xbox Live. I call up SBC, and after an hour of over the phone tech support, they tell me my computer's USB ports are screwed up or something. Bleh, I didn't believe it, but I didn't feel like being on the phone any longer. I pull out an old Windows computer from the garage that used to have the DSL on it, and the same thing is happening. So now I know it's not the USB ports. Anyways, out of all this, I got my mom to consider getting a Mac. Then, I'll make the DSL router/modem's base computer my Macbook. However, to install the SBC/2Wire modem, you have to install the included Internet Explorer. However, I obviously can't do that since IE doesn't work on the Macbooks. I couldn't troubleshoot at the time, because I obviously didn't have internet access. However, I'm currently at my dad's place, and so I'm here asking for suggestions. Thanks.
