wireless hell!!!!

So I got my new Mac Book today....woo hoo! I've spent ALL afternoon trying to figure out this stupid wireless connection. I'm typically very computer savvy but this has me completely baffled and I'm frustrated as hell. I'm trying to set up the base to my PC so my new laptop can be wireless. I know it shouldn't be this complicated. Yet here I am still not connected Undecided

I'm sorry, Shannon.  I can wireless troubleshoot for PCs, but Macs are their own little (evil) world I can't help with.

It's definitely something on the PC end that needs to be figured out... getting online with the wireless network is super easy with the Macbooks and really doesn't require much, if any configuration.  
 
But that's about all I can offer. I tried setting up a wireless network for my house too and failed miserably, took the stupid thing back to the store, and got a wired router instead (and still ended up having to call tech support. Tongue)

I've troubleshooted to the point that I think I just need another ethernet connection line. I have the AirPort Extreme. My PC will be connected to the router directly .... not wireless. So I think that's what I'm missing....another cable. I'll be headed back to the store tomorrow to have them walk me throught it step by step. Talk about feeling like an idiot. Undecided  I can always figure this stuff out. I hate that I can't!
 
Connecting the Mac to the wireless is a cinch. The wireless card is built right in. Once I get my base connection the laptop is easy.

I hope this helps. You can always rely on apple.com for a lot of things.

When you're using the internet, use Firefox, Safari isn't as good, and IE is crap because they don't update it for macs.
 
and when you're done watch this:

Thanks Lauren. I've read just about every troubleshooting guide.....and then some. I really do think it's going to be as simple as needing an extra line.
 
I'll be super excited as soon as I get the base hooked up and can set up the laptop connection. I was reading through the setup and it looks like it takes about 5 seconds.

I learned on a Mac in college so it's all coming back to me. It's pretty much the exact opposite of a PC. I will say this though.....the built in laptop mouse/navigation pad is so much easier than any PC pad I've ever used. I don't really need a mouse with this. Mac just makes everything easy.

I figured it out! I was right. I just needed an ethernet cable. I'm all set up and wireless. It's a good day! Grin
