Hey all. My wife uses our rev. b iMac which is connected to our network/internet through a router/switch. It runs pretty much all of the time. Well, she hadn't used it for a day or so and went to do some surfing and was given a message to the effect "no connection available". I checked the connection to the network and can still see and mount the other machines on the network, so I assume the TCP/IP stuff is working OK. I still have no internet connection after trashing the TCP/IP prefs, as well as zapping the PRAM. Any one have any ideas as to what is doing this? If I could, I'd just let the machine run OS X all the time as it connects to both the network and the internet just swell. But, alas, my wife needs USB printer sharing, so no OS X for her. Any ideas??

Thanks for your help.

I don't think assuming the net is up is a very good idea... can you get to it from other machines?
