O.K. here's the deal...
So I go to log in after installing OS9 and low and behold I can't get the modem to go full throttle. So I check all the possibles and find that my TCP/IP control panel seems to be corrupted and holding an address. so after I delete this all is well. How do I stop this from reoccuring?

if TCP/IP is holding a number, one way to reset that is to create 2 configurations in the TCP/IP control panel and switch between the 2. Make sure that you switch, close the panel, make the change, then reopen and switch back. Did you trash preferences? I have had a problem with MacTCP DNR in the past... you can trash that...

I'm also having a problem with TCP/IP. When I boot up my computer and launch, for example IE, it won't work. In fact, none of the internet programs work i.e. AOL, MacTicker, etc. I have to open TCP/IP, change something, and save it. After I do this, everything starts to work. I've trashed prefs and DNR and rebuilt the destop, but I have to keep doing this to kick-start TCP/IP.

Two things to try

first on the os 9 cd in the cd extras there is an open tranport extras. In there the tcp/ip extras will release the ip addy.

Thanks for the input. I have also been adviced to do a clean re-install. I've tried this and seems to have taken care of some of the conflicts, hate to have to rebuilt the sys. folder though...
Still having some probs with O.E. 5...

Your best bet in eliminating the loss of settings is to save them in Location Manager. This will lock in your settings. I recently performed a clean install and all of a sudden AOL wouldn't detect my GV 56K PC card. After resetting the GV info control panel several times I realized that I was losing my settings. OS 9 is very querky.

I have found that the problem with TCP/IP holding an address, is due to a conflict between AOL and Mac OS 8.6 and Mac OS 9. I got so frustrated, I finally called America Online and asked them what the story was. They told me to go to the TCP/IP control panel and switch to DHCP Server, close the control panel, save, reopen TCP/IP and change it back to BootP server, close and save. Or, you could do what I did, and go to the TCP/IP preference in the Preference Folder in the System Folder and "Get Info" (Apple-I) and check off "Locked" at the bottom left hand corner. You get an error message when you go to sign onto AOL, but at least it won't pop in an address which screws up your ability to surf the net. I hope this clears up the frustration out there. The America Online folks say their working with Apple with this and it should be fixed with AOL 5.0 or 9.0.1.

Heres the latest....
I have done a complete clean re-install and dragged over all the stuff into the new system folder... still have probs!
I will try the idea of locking the info box of TCP/IP but I am not using either cable or AOL.

Any other input?

I have been having similiar problems. I am an AOL Mac user, version 5.0. I have a G4, OS version 9.0.2.
I CAN connect to AOL, but can't connect to the internet via AOL broswer, IE or Netscape. I've called AOL (many times!) and
reopened TCP/IP and changed it back to BootP server. I've dumped my cache and web preferences.

I still cannot connect. Is it a TCP/IP problem on my machine? (AOL says it was). Is there some type of setting I need to fix? I am new to this, and would appreciate all help!

Thanks.

Ronit
