Dear Sirs (especially MiG!),
Here is my deal. I got ADSL here in Hungary. I have access to the internet, but ONLY through a WAN Miniport PPPOE. The Broadcom 440x 10/100 Integrated Card is saying “Limited or No Connectivity”. So, having said that, I can ONLY connect to the internet IF I connect through one of the free Wireless Networks I can access around my flat using my own Usernam and Password
**To clear this up, the connection works like this: My Comp -TO- Another Comp -TO- Their Modem with My Password -TO- Internet
Rather than: My Comp -TO- Modem with my Password -TO- Internet
What do I do?
This has all been on a WinXP computer (my roommates).
Now, I have a MAC and the situation is even worse. I would go through ETHERNET connect, put in the username and password of my providor, then try to connect. I would never get a response, it would just timeout. What’s the deal there? I thought that Macs were the Kings at plug-n-play?
What can I do to get the Mac to connect?
I already tried Technical Support and the guy got me connected, but it wasn’t until after I hung up that I realised I was connected through the WAN, not through the cable into MY phone line.
He also told me that I HAD to be on WinXP… That hurt my feelings. What’s wrong with my Mac?
