There are two ways to get your HDVS-200-TX-WP connected to a network.
|One way is through your HDVS-200-RX:|
Often your RX will be inaccessible behind a TV or up on a projector. In that case, you can connect to the front panel ethernet port on the wallplate itself. Depending on the faceplate installed, you may have to remove the wallplate and the front cover to access the ethernet port:
IP Settings and Network Discovery
The HDVS-200-TX-WP can be set to a default static IP or to DHCP. It ships with DHCP enabled.
If you are connecting direct to a laptop, it is easiest to use the default static IP. If you are connecting your HDVS-200-TX-WP to a network with a DHCP server, you will want to make sure DHCP is enabled.
Toggling Between DHCP and the Default Static IP
To switch between DHCP and static, hold the INPUT button for 15 seconds. You can also do this to verify which IP mode the HDVS-200-TX-WP is set to. The PWR LED will flash to indicate the current mode:

Alternatively, you can use a laptop with DHCP server software to connect to your wallplate while it is in DHCP mode. Please see the following articles:
