This is where you set up your DM box on your Local Area Network (LAN) If you planning on using any of the mulit-media
tools like the [[e2MoviePlayer VLC Movie player]], the Media player or [[e2webif the world wide web interface]], this must first be set up for
your network.

On this screen we can configure the;
1) **Adapter settings:** Set up the IP address of the box, net mask of the box, the Gateway of the box
1) **Nameserver settings:** Set up the domain name sever (DNS) this box will use

===={{color c="gray" text="Adapter settings:"}}====
Here we can set up;
**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.

===={{color c="gray" text="Nameserver settings:"}}====
Here we can set up the domain name sever (DNS) this box will use. It is in most cases the same address of your modem router or gateway.
However you can also use the OPEN DNS settings (the global DNS) of 208.67.222.222 or 208.67.220.220
