10.3: Check network speed to resolve connection issues
Authored by: rgovostes on Jul 29, '04 08:23:13PM

I realize that this is a fairly simple hint, but I couldn't figure out why my old iMac could connect to my network just fine with automatic speed detection, while my friend's newer PowerBook couldn't. I didn't realize that the incorrectly setting the speed would prevent a network connection entirely.

One feature of Windows XP that I wish was on Mac OS X is that when a network connection is fount, it pops up a notification and tells you the speed. I didn't know the connection speed of my network at the time, as some changes were being made to it by the powers that be, thus the trial and error bit.
