Aol, mac, pc, bt voyager 2100 network - help
by skully - 5/13/05 9:46 AM
Here is my problem - I have a pc connected through an ethernet cable to a bt voyager 2100 modem router. My isp is Aol. ( which could be the problem) I have a brand spanking new emac with airport extreme card. I cannot connect to the internet on the mac and i can't connect to the internet easily on the pc although it does work sometimes. The strange thing is, that i can access the pc's shared files from the mac, and connect to aol through the aol program ( but only when the pc is connected at the same time) and all i can do with this is check emails, go on various aol keywords, use my buddy list to talk to people and all of this works fine, but it wont connect to any websites at all. I also tried using ichat, and various other programs to connect and these don't work either. Bt says that the mac is blocking the connection and that aol should give me a secondary dns code that isn't there, aol say they can't and say to phone bt, bt then say to phone aol again...and this goes on. I would appreciate any help greatly as if this doesn't work, then I will have to swap the router with another that aol supports to see if that works, or in the worst case, send back the mac which i really don't want to do. Can anyone help?
