Social Media WireLists43 300pxLast week, we discussed how to connect to Wireless Designer through a personal network on Windows-based machines. For those of you using Macs, the steps are basically the same, with the exception of slightly different hardware needs and the process of getting to the DHCP menu. You may want to print out the Windows instructions to refer to for this exercise.

We ran this demo using a Netgear switch and a DSQD. You will need a Mac that can connect to Ethernet, either with an adapter (we recommend that you use only Apple-licensed products, as generics often do not perform correctly) or directly into the port. For this purpose, we used a Thunderbolt adapter.
