Is WSR-6000 compatible with OS x 10.1, 10.2 Jaguar and 10.3 Panther?

We have found that for most users, setting TCP/IP to DHCP in OSX 10.0.x or 10.1.x causes some issues through our Router. OS X 10.2 Jaguar and OS X 10.3 Panther does not have this same behavior. Please set the TCP/IP of your computer Manually. Apple is currently releasing updates to fix known bugs in the OS. The latest version is always available on the Apple website at www.apple.com.

1. Under OS X, click on System Preferences and click on Network. Configure using your Ethernet card and make sure PPPoE is disabled on OS X. Under the TCP/IP tab, configure the IP Manually. Use these settings:

IP Address: 192.168.123.x
*(x= a number above 1 or that has no conflict on the LAN a number between 1 and 253)
Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0
Router: 192.168.123.254

*This setting is for a Router that is set for factory default with a private IP using "192.168.123.254"

2.Nothing is needed for Search Domains or Domain Name Servers. However, it is recommended to put in the DNS numbers just in case. This information can be obtained from the ISP or from the System Status page in the Router once connecting to the Internet.

3. Now you should be able to connect to the Internet through OSX. We have also found that DHCP can work when updating OSX to version 10.0.3. You will need to download the updater from their site at http://www.apple.com. You will need to update to 10.0.1 then to 10.0.3. DHCP can work with this version, but it is recommended that you have Connect on Demand enabled on the router. There may still be difficulties clicking the Connect button in the Router. Just exit your browser and relaunch the browser and it will connect on it's own.
