Welcome to BelleAire at Saint Mary's College!

To configure your Mac to use DHCP on wireless:

Please confirm which version of Apple's operating system your computer has installed before continuing. There will be some minor differences in these connection instructions based on which version of Mac OS X/MacOS you have installed. To confirm your operating system version, go to the Apple menu in the upper left corner and select "About this Mac."

For Mac OS X version 10.9, 10.10, 10.11, and MacOS 10.12:
(Mavericks, Yosemite, El Capitan, and Sierra)

  1. On your Mac, click on the Wi-Fi menu near the upper right corner of the screen and select BelleAire as your wireless network. (If you are a student connecting to the wireless network in a residence hall, select ResNet as the wireless network.)
  2. In the dock (at the bottom of your Mac desktop), click on the System Preferences icon. (It looks like a rectangle with one or more gears in it.) If you do not see this item listed in the dock, you can also select System Preferences... from the Apple Menu.
  3. Click on the Network icon.
  4. Wi-Fi should appear highlighted. If it does not, click on it once to highlight it.
  5. Click on the Advanced... button and click on the TCP/IP tab.
  6. In the pop-up list next to Configure IPv4: select Using DHCP.
  7. Click on the DNS tab. The field next to DNS Server: must remain blank. The server will automatically send the correct information to your computer (and may appear light gray or may not be able to be selected).
  8. Click Apply at the bottom of the window and close the System Preferences window.
