What network options do I have for connecting to the WIFI2HDMC, and what wireless encryption options are available? [Firmware 2.0.0 to 2.0.4]
Note: In firmware 2.0.2, you need to press the Mode button to switch between the two splash screens. The splash screens appear as follows:
- PC/NB, phone, tablet, iPhone and iPad
- Miracast and WiDi
There are three ways that you can connect to the WIFI2HDMC, and they are listed below in order of performance.
- The HDMI source is connected directly to the device using an Ethernet cable. By default, the IP address is assigned by DHCP but a static IP address can be set.
Note: This option is disabled when an Ethernet cable is connected or Wi-Fi is connected to another access point.
- The device acts as an access point that can be directly connected to and does not involve a network. The two encryption options are Open Network and WPA.
- The device is added to a wireless network and can be accessed by any other device on the network. The device is controlled by using the Web interface, which you can access by typing the IP address of the unit into a web browser. Initially, you need to set up some options. The IP address is assigned by DHCP, and a static IP address cannot be set by this device. The two encryption options are Open Network and WPA.
Note: Miracast and WiDi use their own encryption methods.
