Our system went down there for a second so I am sending the same thing I sent you a second ago.Hello, my name isXXXXX will stay with you until the problem is resolved.What version of Mac OS X are you using?How is it you are connecting? Wireless or through an ethernet cable?
This is the Network pane in 10.3.9 and shows that the ethernet is OK. If the button is red then there is no connection or if it is yellow it means that there is a problem.
If you click on 'Show' a popup menu will give you choices like 'Built in ethernet' and 'Network Port Configurations.
Choosing 'Built in Ethernet' will show you this and will have all the information filled in if it is working correctly. What you see in the image are samples and will not be what you have.
If you are using Airport then that would be one of the choices and would have similar information.
By going back to 'Show' you can select Port Configurations.
This is where the port that is the primary is set.
Drag them into the order that you want and uncheck those that you won't use.
Some times it is necessary to crate a new location because of conflicts or if you have are in a different location that your primary one and the connection is different. This makes it easy to setup or switch between locations and also helps to trouble shoot problems with connecting to a network.
This time click on 'Location' for this popup menu.
Select new Location and in the drop down name it.
It can be any name you like. Then choose the connection type, it will give you a list of available choices.
After doing this click on 'Apply' and it should connect.
After you do that try connecting again and let me know how it works.
