I'm trying to get Telstra Clear cable internet working with my Apple Airport Express wi-fi system and my MacBook.

I can surf okay (but slowly) when I have the Cat 5 cable plugged directly into the MacBook, but no luck with the Airport Express.

After much fiiddling it will come up with a message like, "You appear to be connected to the internet, but we are unable 
to find you may have mis-typed it."

I've put in my IP manually.  Subnet mask is  Gateway is my base IP but ending in a 1.  DNS1 is , 
and DNS2 is 203,96.152.12

At the moment I have turned off all encryption just to make sure that isn't a problem.

Everything will look like it's connecting okay, but I can't surf the web with the Airport Express.

Thanks to BARF in another posting I looked at Airport Admin Unility and found that one of my DNS servers was mis typed by one 
number in that location.  

It was correct under the main network configuration location, but if it's wrong under Airport Admin unility it won't work.

As soon as I fixed the incorrectly typed DNS server in this location I could surf just fine.  I then turned on wireless security, 
and everything seems to be working fine.

I am how cherfully surfing the web wirelesly (but still slowly).

Thanks BARF.
