To establish a new Internet connection using Macintosh OSX (*Leopard), do the following:
Click the Blue Apple icon on your tool bar and select "Location" then "Network Preferences" from the menu system.
The Network Preferences Opens.
You will create a new location here. Click on "Location" then "New Location"
You will now see a window like this:
Name your new location = Giving it a name - "Maui Net" is recommnded.
Click the OK button.
Show = Select Internet Modem from the menu.
Select the PPP tab.
Service Provider = Maui Net
Account Name = your maui net username
Your login name will be your username with the “@” and domain name examples:
firstname.lastname@example.org for Maui Net customers
email@example.com for Maui Gateway customers or
firstname.lastname@example.org for Cyber City customers
Password = your maui net password
Telephone Number = **use your respective island's number (See below)
Check the box Save password.
Click the PPP Options button.
The following window appears:
When you check the option Connect automatically when needed, your computer will ask you if you want to connect when you click on a TCP/IP application i.e., Mac Mail, Safari, Entourage, etc.
Click the OK button to close the window.
Select the TCP/IP tab.
Configure IPv4 = Select Using PPP from the menu.
DNS Servers = Normally ISPs dynamically assign these addresses. There shouldn't be any reason to enter your DNS addresses. However, if you're having trouble browsing, you may consider entering these.
Select the Modem tab.
Modem = Apple normally assigns this automatically. You'll usually see Apple Internal 56K.
Check the option Enable error correction and compression in modem.
Check the option Wait for dial tone before dialing.
Dialing = This should be set to the type of dialing you get from your telephone company. Most use Tone dialing. Pulse is a bit archaic.
Sound = You can enable/disable the sound your modem makes when connecting to the Internet.
When finished, click the Apply button to save any changes and close the window.
*Setup for previous versions of OSX is very similar.
