Ok, really weird. After and hour and a half trying to connect to the internet and restarting the computer 7 times (its freezing up) it automatically connected on the 7th start up (and a few words of promised friendship if it was nice to me). I will trying to use it for a while and hope it is not a fluke.
I am concerned with the fact that it will not allow me to change the network settings, any suggestions? The freeze ups concern me as well but I will give it the benefit of the doubt a little longer.
