Weird Wifi problem- new MBP- help!

Hi- When I'm at my girlfriend's parents' house, I can never successfully use the internet over wifi. Only when I'm there... I can connect to the internet and the password is correct, and it says I'm connected, but it will not connect to the internet. I might get an occasional message saying "Cannot connect to PPP or PPPoe..." but everything on the network is supposed to be standard, no crazy settings or anything, just WEP password.

When I switch over to Vista through Bootcamp, everything goes fine... A couple months ago, it worked perfectly on my MBP... Now it doesn't..

ANY IDEAS? Thanks!

Not sure if this will help but I had a simillar problem and it turned out that when I entered the WEP password, I didn't hit the drop down and selected WEP - HEX.

If you are using the password from the router that you setup on line 1 (HEX), then make sure you use HEX.

Didn't work... It seems to connect to the network, but internet won't come through... When running Windows, its fine... WEIRD!



WAIT............. I just got a message saying "192.168.11.7 in use by (a bunch of letters and number which I think is the MAC address), DHCP Server 192.168.11.1)

my friend has a Blackbook and it's doing the exact same thing. I'm going over tomorrow to figure it out for him so i'll be keeping an eye on this thread in case anyone has any ideas.
