Setting Up Macintosh OS X (10.6.8 (Mountain Lion) and later versions)

NOTE: This guide was created using Mac OS x 10.6.8 as the steps do not differ much. Your version of MAC OS may appear different or settings may be called different names. But this guide should be a helpful starting point.

From the Apple Menu select System preferences, and open the Network preference screen. Make sure you have selected built-in modem (or external modem, as appropriate) from the left-hand column. If you do not see your device try clicking on the (+) button at the bottom left corner of the network window.







Enter the following settings:
  • Telephone Number: (see below)
  • Account Name: your Access Username (in the form of a Nucleus email address. Example: username@nucleus.com)
  • Password: your Access Password
  • When you're done, click Apply to save your settings.
