  • The iMac and iBook 8.0 – 9.0 operating systems have several different locations for the Internet Setup Assistant.
    • If it is not located in the “Apple” menu, try these:

      control panels
      Internet Setup Assistant

      Hard Drive
      Assistants folder
      Internet Setup Assistant

  • Alternative Method for setting up your Internet Access Connection
  • The Internet Setup Assistant is used by your computer to put the settings into TCP/IP and PPP.  You can skip the setup assistant, however, and do it directly.

    For TCP/IP settings, go to:
    Control panels

    For PPP settings, go to:
    Control panels
    PPP or remote access (remote access may be your PPP settings)
