hi all

A friend has given me a mac pc something os 9

iam having trouble geting on the internet when i look in the tcp/ip configuation it is set to dhcp that seems to be ok, i think the problem is with the nic there is no light on my router
to confirm a connection. when i look in the system configuration  under tcp/ip it says nic
is not connected if that is the problem where do i connect the nic so its active iam also thinking it could be a driver problem if so any links if it is the nic is it possible to change it
knowlege of mac pc' is very limited

Thanks davy

Your description is somewhat confusing, but let's start from the basics:

1) You have a NIC card hooked to the router in your Mac?  Or are you using the built-in ethernet connection?  (I think I know, but don't want to overlook the obvious...)
2) How is the cable?  Can you verify that it is good? That is, can you hook it to a functioning PC and have it work?
3) What model Mac do you have, and what is the OS level?

Software (this is high-level, and then we can drill down):
1) Was the software re-installed before it came to you?

Let's start with that.
