Connecting Mac OS X to the network

Go to System Preferences -> Network.

Change the Show field to "Built-in Ethernet."

Set "Configure IPv4" to "Using DHCP."

After a few seconds you should see an IP address in the form of 172.16.x.x (where x is any number in the range of 0-253).

If you don't see an IP like the one above, check the link lights (if any) on the Ethernet port (the port to which you connect the cable from the network drop in the room).

If you get an IP, but can't access anything (even after checking your proxy settings), go to Applications -> Utilities -> Terminal, and type ping You should get responses from that IP address. If you don't, open a ticket.
