4. Configure the network. Open System Preferences > Network. Select “USB Ethernet” to adjust the adapter settings. Set them to the following manual settings:

5. Optional: Adjust the network ordering such that USB Ethernet is first on the list.

a)       Go to the “gear” at the bottom of the list and choose “Set Service Order” from the list.

b)      In the dialog, drag “USB Ethernet” above Ethernet in the list.

c)       Click OK and close System Preferences to apply the network settings.

6. Turn on the MP150 (or power cycle it if it was on).

7. Check the amber light on the ETHUSB.
