well nothing seems to be working for me. I upgraded to 10.3.4 hoping it would fix my problems. so far hasn't worked. heres the deal
yesterday was trying to get network working with my wireless network...here are my specs
dns/dhcp server/my router ip = 192.168.1.1
my computer IP = 192.168.1.2
anyway, I'm not even THERE anymore. I configured my router with all sorts of funky settings...I also configured my TAP device with manual settings. someone suggested to me to try to upgrade to 10.3.2 or later to see if that would work, apparently thats supposed to be better as far as wireless connections go. so I did that...but I didn't wait patiently enough for the installer and x'ed out pearpc because I was impatient. completely messed up my installation. all I would get is the rotating circle...and then a plain blue screen. mac osx wouldn't boot up.
so...I say ok. reinstalled osx with previous settings. took the good part of 2/3 hours. me thinking previous settings would help. they didn't. network cards were configured as they still were, and my settings were now different for my TAP card. it now wasn't recognizing tap at all. so I go in and removed all the realtec pci connections from network manager. I just upgraded to 10.3.4...and all I have is built in ethernet under network port configuration (2nd drop down box). nothing is left in network status...it is blank.
I try to enable the drivers in my config file but then pearpc won't boot up at all. It just flashes and quits. I get this error if I go commandline and try to start pearpc myself:
[TAP-WIN32]: Enumerating TAP devices...
main() caught exception: Could not locate any installed TAP Win32 devices
The thing is, tap IS installed...I've installed it and uninstalled it countless number of times with no sucess. I have ICS connected to the TAP connection through my wireless connection so that works no problem. I've installed, rebooted, uninstalled, rebooted...all with no sucess. I'm out of ideas and would appreciate any help you guys could give me. I can't seem to connect to the pearpc irc channel through the java chat or through trillian.
