Wi-Fi Networking

From the Wi-Fi page you can change the WiFi network settings of your RedEye unit.

Wi-Fi Setup

Wi-Fi MAC Address

This section displays the Medium Access Control (MAC) address for your RedEye unit. This value can be helpful if you are looking for your RedEye unit within the wireless client list on your router. All RedEye MAC addresses begin with 00:23:87.

Choose a Network

When you load the Wi-Fi page, RedEye will automatically scan for nearby wireless networks.

If the network you need does not appear in the list of scan results, you can click the Scan button (just to the right of the Choose a Network label) to scan again.

To select a network, click on the radio button next to the network name. If the network is secured, you will need to enter your password (twice for confirmation). Once you are finished, click the Save button at the bottom right corner of the page to save your changes and connect to that network (please note that at this point you may need to switch your PC over to the same network in order to re-establish a connection with your RedEye unit).

Note: the RedEye (ad-hoc) network always appears in this list so that you can select it if you wish. This does not indicate that the RedEye network is currently available (in other words, you may not “see” in the RedEye network from other devices if you scan for it at this point).

IP Address

In this section you can specify information about your RedEye unit’s IP address. Most networks will assign IP addresses automatically using a DHCP server. Therefore if you have the DHCP tab selected here, IP address information is there for information purposes only and you cannot make changes to it.

If you change the IP address information using BootP or Static, please make sure you click the Save button at the bottom-right corner of the screen to store your changes.

HTTP Proxy

If your network uses an HTTP Proxy, you can enter proxy information here. When you are finished, please make sure to click the Save button to store your changes.
