tutorial
For those who want to use computer networks connected to internet using mac computer with MacOSX
Leopard operating system, or snow leopards, sometimes don’t know how to setting computer network,
especially if you want to connect to internet with computer network facilities that not use DHCP (Dynamic
Host Configuration Protocol), so we have to set the computer network manually by adjusting the existing
IP address.

Things that we have to do :
System Preferences > Network > Airport > Advanced > TCP/IP
Configure IPv4 : Manually
IpV4 Address: 192.168.1.53
Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0
Router: 192.168.1.1
Configure IPv6: Automatically:
Router: Automatic empty because we make configure IPv6 automatically
IPv6 Address: Automatically empty because we make configure IPv6 automatically
Prefix Length: Automatically empty because we make configure IPv6 automatically

Then you can change the DNS which is given automatically by your Internet network provider with DNS
public as Google’s DNS 8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4, or DNS from OpenDNS are: 203.67.222.222 and
208.67.220.220 and many more, but DNS that usually used and well-known like I mentioned above is from
google and OpenDNS and there is one other alternative for you is 4.2.2.2 and 4.2.2.1.
To set DNS for Airport on macbook pro snow leopard are :
On the left part of DNS Server, you can Click on the + sign at bottom of IPv4 or IPv6 addresses, then enter
DNS that you want, such like DNS from Google : 8.8.8.8 and add more the second DNS by pressing the +
sign as the beginning and enter The second DNS 8.8.4.4 and you can continue by adding another DNS by
pressing the + sign and then when you finish, you can continue by pressing OK.
DNS functions to: The Domain Name System (DNS) is a hierarchical naming system for
computers, services, or any resource connected to the Internet or a private network. It
associates various information with domain names assigned to each of the participants.
Most importantly, it translates domain names meaningful to humans into the numerical
(binary) identifiers associated with networking equipment for the purpose of locating and
addressing these devices worldwide. An often used analogy to explain the Domain Name
System is that it serves as the “phone book” for the Internet by translating human-
friendly computer hostnames into IP addresses. For example, www.example.com
translates to 192.0.32.10. (wikipedia)
