Note : Adding Ethernet network connection (DHCP)

If the new network being added can acquire the IP address through a DHCP server, a new configuration does not need to be added.

* Once the Ethernet cable is connected, the LiveShell X can be used.
* 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 networks

The most recently saved network is assigned the lowest number on the list (Wi-Fi No.). If the LiveShell X discovers multiple wireless APs, it will use the most recently added network.

  • The 10 most recent networks can be stored at any given time.

The LiveShell X cannot discover a stealth ESSID wireless AP, if one is being used, the access point will need to be reconfigured.
