    You need to first plug the ethernet cable into the game adapter and then into your PC. If you PC is wired just unplug the ethernet cable from it to set up the game adapter and then you can plug it back in when you are done. After you plug it into a PC run the setup disc that comes with it. It will take you through a few steps. After you completed the steps it should be set up. Disconnect it from the PC and plug it into the HR20. The run the network setup in the HR20 menu. Then you should be good to go. Let me know if this helps.

    I have never used a mac but I would guess you will still connect it to the ethernet jack on it and it will work. The setup disc that comes in the box.

    Are you talking about the little switch on the back of the game adapter?
