I can't figure this out.... I have a desktop eMac and it always connects to internet fine. I have dial up here at home. My ibook, ever since I signed up with earthlink it won't dial thru without me having to unplug the phone line and re-plug into ibook. earthlink said it was my "faulty" ibook. I have since got rid of earthlink and went with someone else and re-installed software on the ibook. Still having the problems. Is it time for the ibook to go into the shop for "repairs"?? Once connected, it works fine except connection speeds are scattered. Sometimes I'm connected at 14000bps and sometimes 9000, sometimes when I'm lucky, 24000bps. eMac is always constant. HELP.... At work, I use wireless and it works perfect - no issues.
