Remove the dongle from the Mac and reinsert it into your Navigator-500, you should see the connection light glow blue, followed by a flashing blue light, this indicates you're connected to the mobile network.

On a PC:

Plug the USB dongle into a USB-C port on your Windows PC. If the device isn't recognised as a USB modem, it should appear as a removable drive. Click into the removable drive and install the driver pack included. Once installed the device will show correctly as a usb modem.
