I do show the local area network as being disabled, but the wireless network is fine. Could just simply enabling the LAN solve this problem? Or would it cause an issue with the wireless network?
I'm not sure where you're getting that information but the local arena network is your network. Not sure how that thing differenciates the Wired Network or Wireless Network, but they both exists within your local area network.
I pulled up the connection icon at the bottom of the screen, and it says that the local area connection is disconnected. Of course, that is not the same as the local area network (doh!). See, I told ya I wasn't a technoid!
I had already gone over all the troubleshooting articles.
Are you currently using the slinglink? If so, do the lights stay on continously, or do the keep blinking? If they're supposed to blink, then it looks like I should have a connection, but it isn't working. And here I thought it would be simple! Murphy's Law, I guess.
