    Very angering story.. somone help me! (with the nintendo LAN adaptor)

    ok so just got a new Nintendo LAN adaptor today.. got an error code saying i couldnt get on to the interne. ok, so i look online and do what it says.. nothing worked. so i called the nintendo support number. the first guy was helping me do stuff thought it was gonna work, but nothing happened. called another person, told me to get a callback from a special tech. person, but im not 18 and i didnt have a parent around so they told me to call back when there was a parent around. my parents came home, called the number back asked to get a callback, and the person tells me that wont be neccesary, and there was something wrong with my LAN adaptor, EVEN THO no one else said there was and i had owned one perviously that got the same error codes but i took that one bak because it was datel and not nintendo's. so now they are sending me a new one, even tho its probably not gonna do any good!!! so now i have to wait even longer for a new one.. thats gonna prolly give me the same results!! (i have high speed internet(RR), im connected directly to my modem, ive tried recycling the modem 3 times, tried all the different setting up techniques, NOTHING WORKED!!) please if someone can help me.. do so im begging you, tell me ow you got your Nintendo LAN adaptor (yes its the grey one with the logo on it) to work.

    like you read on one of my other posts, you may need a router to copy/use your PC's MAC address. that is with cable internet.

    do you have cable or dsl? sorry, you didnt specify
    cable uses a cable line identical to your cable television
    dsl uses a phone line identical to your telephone

    it depends on the internet provider. here's some reading for you. once you get a router, pay attention to the "Finding the MAC address of a PC's network interface" and the "Cloning a MAC address into the WAN port of a router" sections
    http://homepage.ntlworld.com/robin.d...s/macaddr.html

    vonage eplaining mac address cloning better than i can. made it simple.

    here's one with screen shots of the routers software. at the bottom there's additional info too.

    it was in the first link. it doesnt really matter Mac or PC.

    Apple Mac OS 8.x/9.x:
    Pull down the Apple menu, select Control Panels.
    Open the control panel TCP/IP.
    If you cannot see a button labelled Info:
    Pull down the Edit menu and select User Mode...
    Click Advanced.
    Click OK.
    Click button Info.
    Look for the line Hardware address.
    Click OK.
    Close the control panel.

    Apple Mac OS X: one of the following:
    Pull down the Apple menu, select System Preferences, click Network, in the pull-down Show: select the interface required, look for the line Ethernet Address or Airport ID.
    Open a Terminal window, type the command ifconfig en0 (where en0 is the interface in use), look for the line ether.
