At first, my post-update Network control panel gave me a red-coded message saying that there was nothing plugged into the Ethernet port (yet there was -- I hadn't disconnected anything). After a couple of restarts and booting from my 10.3.5 back-up drive now I am getting the yellow-coded message: "Built-in Ethernet is currently active. Built-in Ethernet has a self-assigned IP address and may not be able to connect to the Internet" I'm travelling and I've been in internet cafe's where they had to give me a special IP address that I had to enter in the Network control panel, but that isn't the case at my guest house. I had been using the "Using DHCP" option and everything was pretty much automatic -- that is, I plug in the Ethernet cord and I'm online. Any ideas why this is happening, or more importantly, how I can get back online?
Curious George: Updated to Mac OS 10.3.7, lost net access I hope someone can help me out. I have an iBook G3/600Mhz and up until about an hour ago was running 10.3.5. I just got finished updating to 10.3.7 (using the Software Update in the Control Panels) and after the required reboot I now can't connect to the internet.
