I. Set up mac for a direct connection - Copied from notes in "Mac ICS works" Step 1: Connect MAC wifi to your Internet connected APStep 2: Ensure to "Set Service Order" under the Network preferences, put the Wifi above the EthernetStep 3: Also in Network prefs set the IP address of the Ethernet connection manually - 172.16.42.42, subnet is 255.255.255.0, router is blank, and DNS is 184.108.40.206Step 4: Plug the cat5 cable into the WAN/LAN port on the pineapple II. Follow instructions for first boot on card that shipped with it. - USE firefox if possible, Firefox WHY? - Per an email from Darren Kitchen of 7/14/14, some browser plug ins' can prevent with the windows in the pineapple showing up properly. I had this issue in Safari a couple times. III Once you connect and make sure all is OK - then DISCONNECT it and CONNECT the Pineapple DIRECTLY TO your ROUTER. - This will make your router assign a valid IP address using DHCP to the pineapple, so the Pineapple can access the internet and you can access it from a Mac which is connected to the router. IV. Determine the IP port the router assigned to the Pineapple. The Pineapple's IP can be determined and accessed by any Mac that is also connected via ethernet (NOT Wifi) - Use a program like iNet or Angry IP which can be downloaded for free for finding the IP. Another option is trial and error. My DHCP server is set to assign address at 10.0.1.2 and up. Mine for example was 10.0.1.8 V. With both the Pineapple and the Mac connected via ethernet to the router, use your mac to og into the Pineapple with the IP address followed by :1471 For example 10.0.1.8:1471 VI.
