From the NIE 2.0 Documentation, kInetErrNoSuchLinkLayerService = -60508. So,
NIE is expecting something that is missing. I'm not an expert on networking,
but are you sure there isn't some kind of scripts or other validation that
is performed when you try to connect? Besides the information that you
entered in your internet setup, is there anything else that you left over in
the settings you use when connection using your computer?

Any networking expert can shed some light here?
