FAQs - Connect Mac to cable modem
Here you will find questions and answers to common networking topics.
Can I connect my Mac to my cable modem?
Yes your Macintosh can use the same internet connection that your Windows PC uses. The internet uses the TCP/IP protocol to communicate which is supported by just about every operating system. If you are using DSL or cable for your internet connection and have a DSL/cable router then you should be good to go. Just plug a network (Ethernet) cable from the router into your Mac or you can connect wirelessly if your Mac has the capabilities. Just make sure that your Macintosh is set to use DHCP which will get its IP address from the router. This can be checked from your control panel and network settings. It is most likely setup correctly from the factory.
