Re: [NTLK] WEPPackage installations

I was wondering if someone with DHCP working could
quickly run through their basestation setup. I have
one of the new white base stations. I'm still having
problems with DHCP.

I have 3 computers (macs) at home and they all recieve
DHCP fine, the newton doesn't though. Do I need a
'closed network'? I don't have this checked.

Any advice? Anyone else having this problem?


P.S. On another related subject (but off topic).
If I set the 3 macs to manual IP address (DHCP manual)
they can all be seen on the network but they can't see
the internet. Any idea's on how to make them connect
to the internet with manually selected IP's. Again, do
I need to change something on the basestation.
