AzNET Broadband Quickstart for Macintosh OS X
For printable MS Word version, click here
To connect one computer:
Note: Any Macintosh capable of running OS X (G3 and up) has built-in ethernet, so purchasing a NIC (network interface card) is not necessary.
- Plug one end of a CAT 5 cable into the ethernet port on the back of your Macintosh (the port which looks like a phone jack, but slightly larger), and the other end of the cable into the LAN interface on the broadband connection device (DSL modem, etc).
- Click the Apple menu and choose System Preferences.
- Click the Network icon.
- Select Built-in Ethernet from the Configure window.
- Click on the TCP/IP tab and select Configure Manually.
- Enter your IP Address, Subnet Mask, and Router Address (a.k.a Default Gateway) from the setup sheet provided in your install package.
- In the Domain Name Servers box, type our two DNS server numbers:
- Primary: 184.108.40.206
- Secondary: 220.127.116.11
and type "znet.com" for the search domain.
- Click Save and close your Network window.
- Your Macintosh is now online!
To connect multiple computers:
- You will need to connect an Ethernet hub or switch into the broadband connection device. Follow the instructions included with your hub or switch for connecting to a router. In some instances, a cross-over Ethernet cable may be required. However, some devices have built-in cross-over ports than can be used in lieu of cross-over cables.
- Plug one end of your ethernet cable into an available port on the hub or switch, and the other end into the Mac's ethernet port.
- Follow the instructions above, starting at step 2.
