Please help! I have been using mac for years, but have only just started to try and connect my powerbook to a friends UK broadband connection and its not working. I have taken the IP address, Subnet, Gateway, DHCP and DNS servers details off of their PC and put it into my networks settings but still no joy. How is it when I am in internet cafes I can just plug my laptop in and 'hey presto' but here i am struggling!!! Any help would be sooooo appreciated!!! I am just taking a network cable out of their 'box' supplied by their provider (telewest)!! Is it something to do with the provider???
