Q&A

Q1: What if I don’t have the information for my connection? What should I do?
A1: Call your ISP or network administrator! You must use very specific values when setting up your network, and if you use the wrong ones, you could cause problems for a large number of people.
Q2: What are search domains? I see them listed in the TCP/IP settings.
A2: A search domain is the domain that is “searched” for a given computer if you don’t enter a complete hostname. You can use it to save yourself typing. For sites such as apple.com that have valid addresses in the form info.apple.com and developer.apple.com, you could enter apple.com in the search domain text box and then only type info or developer into your browser to go to those sections.
Q3: I have an ISDN connection. What do I do?
A3: You likely need to get special software for your USB ISDN adapter. Contact your ISP for more information.
Q4: Can I use the Mac OS X Location Manager for setting sounds or other system attributes?
A4: No. In Mac OS X, only the network settings are affected when choosing a location.
Q5: I have an AirPort base station. How can I set it up?
A5: There are two AirPort utilities—AirPort Admin Utility and AirPort Setup Assistant—in your Utilities folder. Use these utilities along with the instructions that came with your base station to set up your hardware.
