The cables required to connect a computer to the network vary from computer to computer. Some may have an Ethernet adapter built in, others may require an external transceiver, while others still might need a PC (PCMCIA) card.
To establish an Ethernet connection, you must reconfigure the IP address on your computer to match the address for the room in which you are attempting to make the connection. A set of configuration files will allow you to easily load the settings for each location without having to type all the information manually. You can also manually configure the TCP/IP settings on your Macintosh (see IP Configuration Quick Reference).
|While the network does support Ethernet, it does not support Local Talk connections.|
|1. Follow the instructions for setting up the connection between your Macintosh and the SmartPanel.|
|2. Plug one end of the Ethernet patch cable (RJ-45 male to RJ-45 male, cat 5 UTP) into the Ethernet jack, and the other into your Macintosh's transceiver (AUI Port to RJ-45).|
|3. Set up your Macintosh's IP configuration for the classroom you're using.|
