Thanks for a great guide - I found this thread while trying to configure the chat scripts. I have a different problem - any help much appreciated.

The connection script works for me, and I get assigned a dns server and local IP. If I open Firefox, my google homepage loads ok, although it looks odd - the bottom of the screen says something like "transferring data from" - the IP is something just like that.

Anyway, I can then maybe do one google search, but then I seem to lose the connection. The script is still running ok in the background, but it's as if I lose any lookup ability.

Not sure if this is related, but about the time I lose the connection, a directory browser window for my BB appears, as if the BB has just been connected to the laptop.

Does anyone have any ideas?

Edit: I'm on the most up to date version of Xubuntu - 8.10(?)
