Mac OSX (10.7) PPPoE configuration for FLET'S ADSL, FLET'S ADSL Entry, B-FLET'S and FLET'S Hikari Next connections.

I. Before making the configuration, ensure that...

1. You are contracted with NTT to use their FLET'S service.

2. You are an Asahi Net member.

The fastest and easiest way to sign-up is to do it on-line: click here.

3. You are using the correct Asahi Net Course.

4. You are prepared for connection.
PPPoE connection software in the Mac OSX (10.7) operating system makes it possible for your computer to connect to the Internet on NTT ADSL and fiber-optic lines. Do not install the Japanese PPPoE software that you received from NTT, and do not install any other PPPoE software: you do not need other PPPoE software and its presence could cause connection problems.

On the day of NTT opening their service, connect up all equipment provided as instructed by NTT.
