IP Addresses and Network Connections

The digital entertainer is set from the factory to get its IP Address from a DHCP
server. If your network does not use DHCP, you must set up the digital entertainer
with a static IP address in the range of addresses on your network.

If the digital entertainer is set to use DHCP and fails to obtain an IP Address
from the server, it will resort to an auto IP address in the range of 169.254.x.x.
You can use a static IP address if there is a problem connecting the digital
entertainer to the server.

If the network connection fails, the digital entertainer will time out. Reboot
the unit. For more information, see “Physical Connectivity” on page 5-3.
