*1 If the LiveShell is configured with a static IP address, the configuration should be changed to allow for a DHCP enabled network.

Note : Adding Wi-Fi network setting

The most recently used setting is assigned the lowest number on the list (Wi-Fi No.). If the LiveShell discovers multiple wireless APs, it will use the most recent setting, thereby making the older setting a lower priority.

  • The 10 most recently saved network settings can be stored at any given time.
