I have a nice "brand new" 1400c/166.

Just picked up a Glibal Village Platinum card with 10base ethernet.

Can't seem to get the damn thing to connect in Netscape 3.

TCP/IP settings aren't right, but maybe you have some thoughts for me?

I have my:

Subnet Mask
Default Gateway
DHCP Server
DNS Servers - 1st one is the same as the DHCP

On the 1400 TCP/IP settings I have fields for:

Name Server
Search domain - start and end
additional search servers

How do these numbers match up???

I have all drivers and software installed.

At this point I get a message saying something to the effect that
"www.*******.com cannot be found because it does not have a dns

The little comets go by in the little Netscape picture - just no other

Thank you very much for your help.

Are you sure it works and you have the correct drivers?

Are you sure the cable modem connection works?

Are you sure the cable modem will work at 10mbit? A friend had
a Motorola that would not.

Do you have the correct ethernet cable? You probably require a
"crossover cable" which has pins 1 connected to 6, 2 connected to 3,
3 connected to 2 and 6 connected to 1. Counted from the right with
the tab up and the plug facing you.

Does your cable company/ISP provide a direct connection or require
a "tunnel"?

pick it up automaticaly if the connection works.

leave it blank. It only matters if you were inside a private network.

Try using " http://www.yqcomputer.com/ " (without the quotes). If that works
you have a DNS problem. If it doesn't there is a bigger problem.

How much RAM do you have on it? I have a PB1400 with 16m RAM running
7.6.1 and one with 64m running 9.1. If you have enough for 8.6 or 9.1,
then it will run a lot faster.

In article < XXXX@XXXXX.COM >,

If you have appletalk off, maybe it's setup ok.
With adsl you may have to go to a specific address/browser to register your
ethernet # and for that you may need Netscape 4.08 (?) but maybe not.
For cable I don't know.
