    Is is leopard again or is it my router ?
    I'm not sure if this is a Mac problem, a Leopard problem in Safari or a problem with my Netgear router DG834PN.

    I recently added some security settings, simple ones like changing the default login password and the wireless password together with adding a Mac address for one laptop using 'Airport'.

    On this machine (Intel-Mac G5 2 ghz) there are 2 user accounts, my user account cannot access the Netgear control panel, if I use my partners account it accesses fine.

    Normal procedure is to type the IP address if you're still logged-in the control panel appears, if another user is logged-in a panel informs you that an administrator is already logged-in, if no-one is logged-in a login panel appears. In the case of my user account the Safari browser page just gets stuck as if it can't find the address but it doesn't actually say it can't find the address.

    Any ideas ?

    I have other issues with Leopard, like printer problems, want to talk about that ?

    Hi Richard. I have no help for you, but have you headed over to Macfixit? Someone will definitely be able to troubleshoot with you over there. I'm having airport problems with my powerbook and desktop, too, so I'll probably be seeing you there!

    Thanks for the recommendation, I'll try Macfixit, there seem to be so many issues with Leopard I really don't understand why/how I became an early-adopter though I don't use my Mac for work thank goodness.

    I've been reading lot's of stuff on this site that I understand and have been able to share, Macfixit always seems a little 'high-brow' and above my level. I need to give it another go.

    Solved the problem but I'm not sure how the problem started, another admin/user was logged into the Netgear router, usually if another user tries to log-in under those circumstances a warning panel comes-up to tell you another user is logged-in.

    This didn't happen, Safari behaved like I didn't have an internet connection.

    I had other problems and they were to do with the Leopard 'upgrade' procedure. I eventually did an 'archive and install" preserve users settings, everything but the printer problem is now solved.

    I'm back to 10.5 and going to re-install the drivers of the machine I think worked before I did the 10.5.1 updater.

    Ask Me Help Desk is great for a lot of stuff, but for heavy duty quesitons like this, I would recommend going to Apple - Support - Discussions - Mac OS X v10.5 Leopard
    You'll need your apple ID to log in and ask questions, but anyone can browse what's already there.
    There's a rumor that Apple deletes posts that make it look too bad, but I've seen some pretty serious problems mentioned in these forums that (obviously) have not been deleted.
