Set static IP on your computer

Set static IP on your computer

To connect to your light directly with an (Ethernet) cable, it is strongly recommended to set a static IP on your computer, to make sure this doesn’t conflict with your lights IP-number(s). In this example, we have a light with the IP 10. 11. 11. 112 and shall set an IP for the computer that is 10. 11. 11. 100

The easiest way of doing this in Windows is to hit the Windows button, usually in the lower left corner of the screen, and type:


ncpa.cpl
followed by pressing enter.


This will open Network Connections window:



Right-click on your Ethernet connection (step 1.). If you do not know which one to select, unplug the network cable and watch which icon disappears. When you plug the cable in, the icon will pop-up again. Right-click on the new popped-up icon and select 'properties'.


Highlight the item 'Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4)' ( step 2.) and click on 'Properties' (step 3.).




If you already have numbers entered at the field 'IP address' or 'Subnet mask' you probably want to write these down to be able to restore the settings once you are done with this guide.

Enter the settings displayed in the image above and click 'OK', then 'OK' (or 'Close' depending on Windows version).

Now, your computer is ready to connect with the ethernet cable directly to your light.
