Create a wireless ad-hoc network with two or more Academic RIO Devices
Set up one Academic RIO Device to serve as the ad-hoc network host, and then set up additional Devices to join the ad-hoc network. 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.
CAUTION: Consult your organization’s IT policies regarding ad-hoc wireless networks. These networks potentially interfere with the organization’s wireless infrastructure, therefore it is possible that ad-hoc wireless networks may not be permitted under your organization’s policy.
Connect two (or more) Academic RIO Devices to the desktop:
Connect both Devices by their USB cables 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
Open a new tab and browse to 172.22.11.10 to start the Web-Based Monitoring and Configuring tool on the second device
Select the “Network Configuration” tab for each device
Log in with the “admin” account on each device
Decide which Device you wish to serve as the ad-hoc network host
