Based on some suggestions I connected the eMac to the
DSL modem directly. All OK. Then I reconnected the
airport, rebooted the base station and he DSL modem
and reset the base station using the eMac. At first
it looked like this did the trick as Internet COnnect
showed that the eMac was connected, howver neither of
my browsers could connect to any site - even after a
THe pismo was looking for a p/w (which I hcanged on
the new set up) and then it found the base station and
the internet. THe wierd part is boot the eMac and the
Pismo show the same connect time, which they must be
getting from the base station, so what would cause my
browsers on the eMac not to be able to find a website?
