You can get all the information that you need by connecting to the web interface on your router from your PC. Your router's manual will tell you how to do this.

✔ Best Answer
If you simply connect your Mac to you lan (network) via a cat-5/ethernet cable, your Mac will automatically be on the network; and produce all that info. within the Network utilities app.

By default Mac systems do not set themselves to a manual dhcp configuration; they take/use whatever the router assigns (as does a windows/ linux computer likewise).

To use wifi you will need to know the router's SSID and its password (presuming you are using a password to control access to your wifi side of the lan).

That wifi info will be found in the Management section of your router - via its web-page.

As ijack advises, you logon to that page usingthe ip address for it which is given in the manual.

What make and model is your router.

I found he SSID and the WEP password and that's what Mac needed so I can connect.

Thanks a lot again.
