RIO Developer Essentials Guide for Academia
Connect to a home wireless router
Connect an Academic RIO Device to a home wireless router to gain access to the Internet. Note: The NI ELVIS III does not have the Web Interface for modifying these settings. Use NI Measurement and Automation Explorer (NI MAX) to modify these settings instead.
Connect the Academic RIO Device by its USB cable to a desktop computer
Browse to 172.22.11.2 with a supported browser (Firefox, Internet Explorer, or Safari) to start the Web-Based Monitoring and Configuration tool
Select the “Network Configuration” tab
Choose “Wireless Mode” = “Connect to wireless network”
Click “Wireless Network” to see available networks
Choose the name of your wireless router
Enter the “WPA Passphrase” for your wireless router
Confirm that the Wi-Fi indicator LED is steady blue
Make note of the “IPv4” and “Gateway” addresses. These should both be of the form 192.128.2.x for a typical home wireless router. If the gateway address is 0.0.0.0 you do not have Internet access.
