"Can't find a PPPoE Server"
Posted 19 December 2007 - 04:19 PM
In the past I've tried all the usuals... restarting the computer, turning Airport off then back on, unplugging the Airport base station and then plugging it back in... and gotten it to reconnect. If the computer went to sleep and then woke up, it lost the connection. Now, however, it won't connect at all.
Any suggestions of what might be going on... and what I might try next? Thank you!
I'm on a PowerBook G4, Titanium 1 GHz G4, 1 GB RAM, running 10.4.11. Airport base station is the original white one.

The History of PPP (the old dialup used to connect via PPP - Point to Point Protocol I think ...). So they are still using PPP but now they tacked an oe onto it (over Ethernet = oE). It's a wonder that you get any kind of signal over those old phone lines - which reminds me do you have those little filters on all of your phone lines!

After running for several days directly on Ethernet to the DSL modem, I reconnected Airport to the DSL modem via Ethernet cable (my Network is just that... DSL modem and AIrport Base Station), switched back to Airport in Internet Connect, and the Network pane of System Preferences opened to network status, saying I wasn't connected. I had been set to Automatic. It suggested I switch to the location I wanted to use. When I switched to Airport, it clearly applied changes, and everything has worked fine since, including waking from sleep.
Again, I'm not sure what I did, but... thanks for your help.
