Using an ethernet cable connect the MangoES to a network that supports DHCP. Most small office routers are configured for DHCP by default. Do not connect the MangoES directly to your computer. If DHCP is not available then see USB Utilities under Resources (inside). 

Now that the ethernet cable is connected, go ahead and connect the MangoES to the power source.
