Hi,
I just got a new mac mini, i'm what you call a switcher.
I have at home an ADSL modem connected to my Linksys WRT54G, upgraded to the last firmware.
I have set up a wireless network that I called jayjay.

I also have a PC running XP on this network and I connected to my jayjay network, I can access internet.

On my mac mini I can also connect to the jayjay network, the difference is that I have no internet connection. In the safari browser there is the troubleshooting wizards but the problem is still there.

I really don't know what is happening and am quite lost.
One more thing, to simplify things I disabled security on the network, is that a probable cause?

Thanks for your help and support.
Best Regards,
JJ

I wouldn't say disabling or enabling the security settings would cause the problems. Have you definitely connected i.e have you checked that you have a IP address in network configuration?

Have tried resetting the Router and modem? Sometimes doing this simple thing can solve a multitude of problems.

Thanks for your reply.
My wireless router IP is 192.168.1.1 or something like that.
The IP adress of the mini MAC is 192.168.1.101 so it does have an IP adress.
Is this IP valid?
How come I can access the wireless network and not internet.

By the way, I tried also a direct cable connection between the wireless router to the mini mac, and the problem is the same, no internet connection.

It is a valid ip address for the subnet so it being allocated an ip address by the router. Have you tried the restart? Restart everything in this order turn everything off. After 30 seconds turn the modem back on (if you have one) Leave it to settle for about 30 seconds, now turn on the wireless router and leave that to settle for around 30 seconds, then finally turn the Mac back on. Its difficult to help with out being there to see what is happening.

Hello,

My Mac mini worked well with linksys 54GL. But today i check out that network connection is lost. So I switch on airport conection and my server works again. I could not get where is problem, why I cannot use built-in Lan to connect internet? I Check out LAN on linksys with other PC and it can connect with internet. So I understood that my MAC mini LAN doesn't work. MAC network utility shows - network Interface (eno) IP 144.3.8.0 .
Is there whos has similar problem? And should i repair or is it possible to repair built-in ethernet on MAC mini?
