  1. Connect the Academic RIO Device to the host PC by USB cable to establish the USBLANUSB-based local area network (LAN) established between the Academic RIO and the PC host computer.
  2. Start NI MAX (NI Measurement and Automation Explorer)
  3. Select your device under “Remote Systems”
  4. Select the “Network Settings” tab at the bottom of the display
  5. Locate the “Ethernet Adapter usb0 (Primary)” section
  6. The network (IP) address is indicated by the “IPv4 Address” field
  7. The first Device to be connected by USBLAN has address
  8. Wireless-capable Devices only: Locate the “Wireless Adapter wlan0” section; if enabled and connected, the IPv4 address contains the wireless network address of the Device
