Hi there, I need help badly - every time that I shut down the Mac Mini, or even leave it on but unattended, my Internet connections and network settings change. For instance, when asked to indicate my method of connecting I of course choose the correct one in my case - DSL modem, but a few minutes later it defaults to telephone modem. Also in Setup Assistant my user ID and Passwords disappear, even with the padlocks closed. Occasionally I receive the following message "Your network settings have been changed by another application." This has only started within the last month. Any help would be appreciated.

Not a reply to the OP, but a similar problem

I have a 3yr old 12" PB, running latest version of Tiger. No problem whatsoever with this computer.

I signed up for the Mobile Me trial. Now I get this message whenever I go to the network settings menu. While I connect both at home and work with no problem, I am now not able to change any network settings (should I want to) as the this screen does not allow me to do anything. Even when I click the "OK" button, ot just keeps coming back.

The only way out of this screen is to Force Quit SysPref.

The other thing I notice is that I am not able to "eject" the Network, something I could always do in the past.

Any suggestions would be welcome.

No suggestions ?? Network issues must be a tough issue to crack?
