Confirm that the extender is on the same network as your computer. If you are using a network with DHCP, you do not need to configure anything further.
If you are using an Ethernet cable to connect to the unit or you are using a network without DHCP, you need to change the IP address on your computer to the default IP network of the IP device server. Change the IP address of your system to 192.168.1.XXX, where XXX is a number between 1 and 49.
Note: The default IP address of the extender is 192.168.1.50 on the default subnet mask of 255.255.255.0.
USB Server software
Your extender is detected by the USB Server software when the software is launched.
Note: It may take a few minutes for the server to appear in the software.
When the extender appears in the list (for example, USB2HDMI), click either the display or media device associated with the server. Click on one of the devices and then click Connect Device.
When the USB Server software configuration is complete, the display and media devices are connected to your system as though the devices are installed locally. By default, Windows creates an extended desktop for the display, which you can reconfigure in the control panel.
