    Okay guys, OS X is up and running, and quite nice at that, but I can't for the life of me get my PPPoE connection running. Right now I'm booted off of 9.1 using my old connection client, but OS X's built in protocol appears pretty screwed. I've got all my settings in, and when I open Internet Connect and hit the connect button, it does it's thing and "apparently" connects, it even gives me a valid IP which I checked with the one I'm connected to right now and they're very similiar (it's dynamic IP, but being similiar shows that I'm connected through the same server), but when I open IE it just can't find any web sites. Type in the URL and hit return, five minutes later get the "Attemp to access 'blah blah blah' failed, please check the URL and try again" or whatever it is message. Please help me out here, my first reaction to OS X was literally :wtf: I know more about Windows then I do about this. I never got the build experience like you guys, this is my first go at X.

    Well enough of my rambling on, from the looks of that message I really butchered basic English grammar, but if anyone understands then please lend a hand :p.

    That's weird Haite. I know there is an update for OS X coming out soon, maybe that will solve your problem.
