Howto setup my local area network (LAN) connection

you really want to do this even if you have no internet



This is where you set up your DM box on your Local Area Network (LAN) via wifi (DM800,DM8000) if you have a wifi USB unit, or by hard wire plugged into your ethernet port(LAN cable). If you planning on using any of the mulit-media tools like the VLC Movie player, the Media player or the world wide web interface, this must first be set up for your network.

Use Interface: Do you want to use the LAN adaptor on the previous menu? Yes or no - in 99% of all cases say yes
Use DHCP: for new user this option will discover the details below if your modem router has a DHCP server active in it. But to use most of the tools you will want to disable this option
the IP address of the box: this must be a unique address you assign to your DM box (unique = NO other device on the LAN has this address)
net mask of the box: On most networks this will be a C class address as shown by default 255.255.255.0
the Gateway of the box: (next page) the address of your modem router out to the internet (if you have a PC connected to your LAN check what it is using for a gateway as this should be the same address as the PC's gateway.
