Your iMac is designed so that you can easily set it up and start using it right away. If you've never used an iMac or are new to Mac computers, read this chapter for instructions about getting started. Important: Read all the installation instructions and the safety information starting on page 62 before you plug your iMac into a power outlet. [. . . ] Also check the cables and power supplies to any Ethernet hubs or routers. Turn the modem off and on and reset the modem hardware Turn off your DSL or cable modem for a few minutes, and then turn it back on. If your modem has a reset button, you can press it either before or after you turn the power off and on. Important: Instructions that refer to modems do not apply to LAN users. LAN users might have hubs, switches, routers, or connection pods that cable and DSL modem users do not have. LAN users should contact their network administrator rather than an ISP. PPPoE Connections If you are unable to connect to your ISP using PPPoE (Point to Point Protocol over Ethernet), make sure you have entered the correct information in Network preferences. 3 Click Add (+) at the bottom of the network connection services list, and choose PPPoE from the Interface pop-up menu. 4 Choose an interface for the PPPoE service from the Ethernet pop-up menu. Choose Ethernet if you are connecting to a wired network, or AirPort if you are connecting to a wireless network.

5 Enter the information you received from your service provider, such as the account name, password, and PPPoE service name (if your service provider requires it). Network Connections Make sure the Ethernet cable is plugged into your iMac and into the network. Check the cables and power supplies to your Ethernet hubs and routers. If you have two or more computers sharing an Internet connection, be sure that your network is set up properly. You need to know whether your ISP provides only one IP address or multiple IP addresses, one for each computer. If only one IP address is provided, then you must have a router capable of sharing the connection, also known as network address translation (NAT) or "IP masquerading. " For setup information, check the documentation provided with your router or ask the person who set up your network. The AirPort base station can be used to share one IP address among multiple computers. For information about using an AirPort base station, check Mac Help or visit the AirPort Extreme website at www. apple. com/support/airport. If you can't resolve the issue using these steps, contact your ISP or network administrator.
Problems with AirPort Wireless Communication
If you have trouble using AirPort wireless communication: Â Make sure the computer or network you are trying to connect to is running and has a wireless access point.
Chapter 4 Problem, Meet Solution
Â Make sure you have properly configured the software according to the instructions that came with your base station or access point. Â Make sure you are within antenna range of the other computer or the network's access point. Nearby electronic devices or metal structures can interfere with wireless communication and reduce this range. Â See AirPort Help (choose Help > Mac Help, and then choose Library > AirPort Help from the menu bar). Also see the instructions that came with the wireless device for more information.
