Configuring your Mac OS X IP settings
Step 1

Click on the Apple Menu, and go to System Preferences . Click the Network System Preferences.

Step 2

In the Network System Preferences window, set the following:

- Select the desired location from the Location menu (Automatic is okay).

- From the Show menu, select Built-in Ethernet.

- Under the TCP/IP tab, choose Using DHCP from the Configure menu. Leave all other fields blank.

- Ensure that all fields under all other protocol tabs (PPPoE, Appletalk, and Proxies) are blank.

Step 3

Depending on your version of Mac OS X, click Apply Now or Save to make the settings from Step 2 take effect. Click the Padlock icon that states. Click the "lock to prevent further changes", and enter your administrator password if prompted. Your Network settings are protected when the Padlock icon is closed.

Step 4

Restart your computer. After the computer has restarted, open your browser to load the "Connecting Your World" web page. If the page fails to load automatically, enter in the browser's address field, and click the Go button on the browser, or press the Return key on the keyboard.
