Before we start putting in operating system discs, I found this on the internet. Would you read it first and see if there is something we can do using this information.
Presently on the Mac side my TCP/IP info is: (This info allows me to get on the internet, wirelessly, on my MacBookPro without a problem.
IPv4 address 10.0.1.3
Subnet Mask 255.255.255.0
Config IPv6 - Automatic
DS Servers 10.0.1.1
WINS SERVERS 127.0.0.1
BYPASS PROXY SETTINGS
Passive FTP mode (PASV)
Ethernet ID 00:23:12:1d:83:7A
Config - Auto
Airport ID 00.23:12:1s:8e:7A
Somewhere I found that the Gateway number is: 184.108.40.206 but I don't remember how I got that info. It is not readily visible in the TC/IP info. Where should that number appear and should it appear on both sides? It does not seem to be. I found it on the Windows side only.
These are also the settings used on the Windows side. Shouldn't the Windows side have a gateway setting.
Also, is there some button to click that tells the computer to share the internet? Should that be set on both sides? One side? At all?
Also, should I be using DCHP? The LAN is still connected on the Windows side. The problem seems to be on the Windows side, not the Mac side.
ON the subject of Netbios - should we check to make sure the settings are the same on both sides.
I will set up my Mac G5
so I can answer you quicker, and keep my MacBookPro on the Windows side. I am sure you will figure this out. I get glimpses, but do not have enough knowledge to get a whole picture of how this all works.
