SIA can be connected to your computer via either wireless or ethernet. Wireless requires configuration while ethernet can be plugged in for immediate access. Here you will learn how to configure the different network interfaces.
To change the network configuration:
- In the SIA portal go to Network
- Click the network interface you want to modify. A dialogue will open
- For details of the different network interfaces check Wiring & peripherals
- Modify the configuration of the network to match what your preferences. Check Network configuration parameters for additional parameter information
- Press Save
- SIA will restart to apply the new configuration
In case you forgot your IP address you can easily Reset network configuration to default.
Network configuration parameters
Below is a table of all the various network parameters that can be set for the configuration.
|Enabled||Enabled or disable the network interface|
Manual: Manually set the network configuration. This is static and is preferred in most cases where you want to be in control of the IP address and your network
DHCP: Automatically assign IP address and configuration that it received by the router or the network. By using this you will not know what the IP address of SIA becomes unless you are in 100% control of your router & network.
|IP||The IP address of the network interface|
|Subnetmask||Subnet mask of the network interface|
|Gateway||The default gateway of the network interface. This could for instance be the IP address of the router.|
|Nameservers||Nameservers / DNS servers. Multiple can be added by separating them with a ","|
Wireless network configuration parameters
If a wireless dongle (Wi-Fi) is attached to the USB it will show up on the network page with a symbol.
|Wireless network name (SSID)||SSID of the WiFi network you wish to connect to.|
|Key||Password of the WiFi network|
|Encryption||Select which encryption the WiFi network uses
