There are several ways to check to see if your local network (the same network in your business where you plan to add the UMix Music Player) uses DHCP, or requires a static IP assigned for each device. Here's we're supplying the easiest way to check.
- Right-click on the Windows Flag on the lower left of your taskbar.
- Click Network Connections in the menu.
- Click the Properties button.
- Look for the heading called IP Settings.
If it's set to DHCP, your job is done. UMix ships player set up for DHCP by default. If your local network is set to Static, the UMix player will need to have a static IP assigned in order for it to connect from your local network to our servers.
If it's Static, you can send us the following after you check with your network expert. They will help you.
- The desired IP for the player.
- Subnet Mask.
We can then pre-configure these settings before we ship. If you don't provide that, you can changes the settings yourself after the player arrives, but understand you will need a monitor that uses HDMI, and a USB keyboard and mouse to connect to the music player to update it.
If you want to dig deeper, do a web search for terms like, "dhcp or static ip."
