Long post so bear with me please.

Ok I have got the following :-

In one room I have

a)mac mini bought for media duties (dvd rips, slimserver duties for squeezebox 3) and will be hooked up to a tv via a svideo adaptor (hey some of us havent upgraded yet!), its also got squeezecentre 7 installed for sb3.

b)Squeezebox3 for music internet radio etc

c)xbox 360.

Across the landing I have the second mac mini in the "office" connected to the internet via a netgear wired dg834 router.

I have recently bought a pair of homeplugs to connect the mac, squeezebox3 and xbox to the netgear in the other room so they all have internet/network access.

So atm it is like this

Mac mini
SB3 }homeplug_______}homeplug-router-mac mini (internet).

Now the xbox360 connects to the internet just fine.

Being a mac AND network newb how do I check that the mac in the first room is connect to the network/internet ok (atm its running headless)although the homeplug its connected to lights up the port to show its active for all I know its just detecting the ethernet cable plugged in.

Also although the xbox connects the squeezebox doesn't so if anyones got any ideas on how to solve that that'd be great (I'm assuming its something to do with assigning fixed ips but have NO idea how to do that.

Any help greatfully recieved.
