1. Introduction
     Internet communication is more popular these years. People would like to
select the device to share Internet resources in their home or office by

IP address setting in MAC OS. In order to meet MAC OS users’ needs, we edit
this document to guide you how to configure IP address in MAC serial OS.

Step 3: Fill in TCP/IP IP address. It depends on the router’s default setting. In
this example, the router’s IP address is 192.168.16.1.
      IP address: Fill in IP address 192.168.16.x
                   (x is a number between 2 to 254).
      Subnet mask: Default value is 255.255.255.0.
      Router: Default value is 192.168.16.1




Keep in mind that the computer should have IP address resided in the same
subnet mask of the router.

to pre configure IP address in each computer, either set IP address manually or
get IP address automatically. Most brands provide instruction guide for
Windows OS but no document for MAC OS. In fact, the architecture is similar
just like we show above. This document should be helpful to tenderfoot to
begin the network configuration.
