Using E1.31 without Network Connectivity. IP Questions.

Santas Helper

Recommended Posts

So I am wanting to use the E1.31 connection for pixel controllers.

The computer I'm using isn't connected to the internet. It is Windows XP.

I searched for the IP address and none exists on the computer.

Where do I go from here? Just type in the IP assigned by default on the controller?

What about the Subnet mask? Default gateway? And then the DNS server address?

I also have a ethernet switch on the way. Is this all that is needed?

I have advance license so I'm not worried about that or upgrading to Pro.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you,

To get to the computer address to change it or whatever go here:

Windows start

Control Panel

Network and Internet

Network and Sharing Center

Change Adapter Settings

Right Click Local Area Connection

Right Click Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IP4)

Click Properties

Your IP and subnet mask will be in there. You can set the IP to something like 192.168.*.*  and set the subnet to 

DNS you don't need to worry about since you are not connecting to the internet.

Thanks Mr P, I got to the spot to make changes, just needed to know what to put in those fields or not put in those fields.

So the subnet doesn't matter or should I put in what you suggested?

What about the Default Gateway?

DNS I won't worry about.
