Hi guys,

There's a steady trickle of posts that ask for information about broadband connections, help with AirPort problems and assistance with Ethernet networks. It's tricky to know where to post these messages because they often combine aspects of hardware, software and the operating system.

Might it be worth creating a "Mac Mini Networking" forum? Do the admins and members think that such a forum would be worthwhile?

John H.

I think a networking section is a great idea.

I think that is a good idea. We'll try to get that going this weekend.

Maybe Admins can move related posts to the new networking section. Just a thought.

I just looked at the sticky at the top of the new forum, and I think the admins are already on the case GD... Cool
