Mac OS X Tiger Broadband Settings

This tutorial will show you how to set up a Sunset.net Broadband connection in OS X Tiger (10.4).
These screenshots should work with DSL, Wireless DSL, and Wireless Broadband Access, and demonstrate setting up OS X to use a DHCP connection. If you are using a Static-IP address connection, some of the settings may differ.
If you previously had your Macintosh configured to automatically connect via dialup, you will want to ensure that your system is no longer set to "connect automatically when needed".

  1. Click on the Apple menu and choose "System Preferences."
    Click on the Apple menu and choose System Preferences
  2. Click on the "Network" preference pane.
    Click on the Network pane

  3. Now switch from the "Network Status" screen to the "Built-in Ethernet" screen by choosing "Built-in Ethernet"" in the pulldown menu labeled "Show." The first thing you'll see will be the "TCP/IP" settings.
    • "Configure IPv4" should be set to "Using DHCP"
    • "IP address," "Subnet Mask," and "Router" will all be assigned dynamically using DHCP
    • "DNS Servers" should be assigned using DHCP, but can also be set manually to "" on the first line and "" on the second
    • "Search Domains" should be assigned using DHCP but can be set manually to "sunset.net"
    • While Sunset.net offers IPv6 tunneling for Static IP address DSL customers and Co-location customers, this feature is not supported in any way, and will not at all be covered by the scope of this document.

    • Use the TCP/IP settings recommended above

    • Click on the PPPoE tab. Sunset.net does not use PPPoE for any service. Make sure that the "Connect using PPPoE" box is unchecked.

    • Click on the Appletalk tab. Appletalk works over your Sunset.net broadband connection, but use of this service is not supported by Sunset.net technical support. Please click the "?" button in the lower-right-hand-corner of the "Network" window for information about Appletalk.

    • Click on the "Proxies" tab next. Sunset.net does not require any specific proxy settings.

      No proxies needed.

    • Click on the "Ethernet" settings next. Keep this set to "Automatically" unless you want to configure the advanced ethernet settings. For more information on these settings, press the "?" button in the lower-right-hand-corner of the "Network" window.

      Leave Ethernet set to Automatically or consult the help documentation
