Using an Ethernet cable, connect the computer’s Ethernet card to the LAN/Ethernet port on the small box by your computer (or the Gateway if you have Digital Video). If you install a router*, set the router to connect via DHCP (refer to the router’s documentation for help). Open your browser (Internet Explorer, Netscape, etc.). You should get a sign-in web page.
Enter your Mosaic assigned username and password then click Connect. After your username and password have been approved you will be instructed to restart your computer or router. After the restart is complete, the computer will be connected to the Internet. Open your browser and go.
*Installing a router between the Ethernet connection and the PC will increase your security protection and keep your PC safer from the viruses and hackers that are on the Internet.
