here's the issue. I have a Macbook Pro, running Leopard, and Parralels with XP. I'm trying to log onto a WiFi network in a hotel - free access - but only the parallels side will allow me to load and access the internet. Leopard says there is a good signal strength, recognises the signal but just won't play!! It is annoying the hell out of me! Parallels works fine. Other items such as iTunes and iChat won't load with Leopard either.
If I connect via ethernet, neither parallels OR Leopard work, but both show they are connected.
All the systems check out ok, connection etc, DNS, but it is almost as if it won't move off the 'I connected' stage!! It is driving me crazy.
Currently I have a shiny Macbook, that has to run as a Windows-based PC to function - the shame of it!!!!!
I used it at Schiphol airport (WiFi, where you brought access time) and everythning worked perfectly.
Currently working in Kazakhstan, so I REALLY need my Maccie to play nicely!!!
