    Hi,

    I recently bought a new macbook pro 15" retina display.

    I purchased a USB to ethernet adapter however I cannot seem to get any internet connection through it.

    It says the ethernet port is active however it does not seem to be picking up an internet connection. I have only just converted to OSX from windows so I am not very knowledgeable with networking and macs. Is it possible that I have to configure my router?

    note: the wireless signal from the same router works and connects to the internet..

    Thanks for your help in advance.. Namaste!

    Look in your Dock for System Preferences (it's like Windblows Control Panel)->Network. Plus don't be afraid to use the 'Advanced' button in the Network pane.
