I've had my Audrey since last winter and it's been great up until a week ago. i've had it connected to my 10/100 hub which is connected to router and then to the cable modem. I've never had a problem getting/sending mail or surfing the web.
But lately, I can't do any of that. I've tried everything I've read about but still nothing. Audrey shows me: connected by USB Ethernet, a valid IP Address, a valid netmask, a valid gateway and a MAC address. I say they are valid because my other computer on the hub lists the same info except for the IP address being 1 location different.
When I connect Audrey directly too the cable modem I can get a different IP address but I still can't do anything. It says CONNECTED but it won;t connect to anything. When I try to send/recieve mail or locate a website, the ethernet adapter blinks once and then nothing.
I switched the CONNECTION TYPE from USB ETHERNET to MODEM and it changed to NOT CONNECTED and of course listed no IP ADDRESS in the profile. Makes sense right? But as soon as I switched the connection type back to USB ETHERNET it said connected, even though the ethernet cable wasn't connected to the USB adpter!! It also listed the last IP ADDRESS in the profile even though it wasn't connected.
What else can I try? Obviously Audrey is seeing the router and the cable modem, it's just not getting passed that.
