If you will look on the list, I am having similar problems with my
2000 over wifi. I believe it something to do with TCP/IP on the mac's
end, as it all seems to work in Tiger.

So, looks like the only 2 options is to either wait for a update to
NCX, or downgrade to Tiger (if at all possible).

Unless some of the other newtheads can figure it out. Let us know.
