I f%*king hate networking.

I'm serious. I don't even know where to begin when this shit goes wrong. My laptop knows I connected it to the internet, but that's all it seems to think I'm interested in. Accessing the internet is completely out of the question. It's like it's telling me "OK, I see what you're trying to accomplish here, and we both know I can get you there, but why should I jackass?"

Don angry. Don smash.

    I know what you mean.
    That's why I bought a laptop with wireless lan card built-in.

    My Airport seems to work about 99% of the time. I'm generally happy with it.

    Also, this pic scares me :-o

    As an IT geek, I feel your pain.

    Awesome photo. I think the wiring inside my router must look like this, since I can't convince it that I really DON'T want to use DHCP, I want to configure my NICs' IP addresses myself. *sigh*

    Well, I'm currently browsing the internet on my new Vista laptop through my sister's Linksys wireless connection after another hour of frustration. The cause? Norton. F%*kin Norton. I ran the "kill it with fire" program provided here (because it won't uninstall itself through the uninstall link or the add/remove programs list) - and now everything is cherry.

    But without networking, how would you get connected to the Interweb?!

    hahaha I feel your pain. My shared iTunes library disappeared, and after hours of troubleshooting (because network trouble is so hard to diagnose) and completely bone-ing my router and having to reinstall it, it turns out my firewall had decided to arbitrarily block Bonjour. Put Bonjour setting back to allow and now everything is fine. But YIKES!

    hee hee hee.... great pic. And man, do I hate Norton sometimes. Won't uninstall itself, eh? Then it is both more powerful and more evil then I at first imagined...

    Ahhhahahahaha seriously, when I went back to using a PC briefly and attempted to get it working with the rest of my home network this is EXACTLY how I felt. Damn.

    Installing Norton and some other antivirus software (if I recall correctly, it was ClamXAV) onto an old laptop and watching them decide that their counterpart was a virus was one of the most entertaining experiences of my life.

    But I feel your pain.
