    OK, let's walk through the Assistant.  Very important that you have Automatic for Location, Built-in Ethernet for Show and the TCP/IP tab is selected.  Don't worry that the rest of the stuff is blank at this point.  The system will try all of the possibilities in the Assistant.

    Ok, at this point, of course, you wouldn't have anything filled in.  Click the Assist me... button


    You get a dialog popping up

    Select Assistant...


    You get this window

    Put in some name.  I used home for this example.  Click continue.

    You are on Ethernet on your local area network.  Click that radio button, then click continue.

    Now click continue there.  You should, luck prevailing, get the following window, which apparently needs another post to show, so I'll continue.

    Finally, this window should show:

    When completed and Done is checked, you will come back to the window you started with the location you named and the appropriate stuff filled out.


    That is, if everything worked out OK.
