12.03 Configuring Network

The upper part of the Network setup page shows information on whether or not you have a wired connection, and shows whether you have a WIFI connection, showing the network name (SSID) of the WIFI connection, or shows that the MDA is working as a WIFI hotspot.

In order to establish a wired connection, simply connect the MDA to your network using the network connector at the back. Upon switching on (or rebooting) the MDA, the MDA will configure itself to use this wired connection. For this, it is assumed that your router acts as a DHCP-server (which is default behaviour for a router).

On the network setup page, you will see whether the MDA is connected to a WIFI network or not. If so, you have the possibility to disconnect from this network. When the MDA is not connected to a WIFI network, it shows the available WIFI networks. You can select the appropriate network, and by providing the network credentials (either password for a home network, or user name and password for an Enterprise network), your MDA will connect to this network.

On the lower part of the Network setup page you have the possibility to change the name of the MDA on the network (default is mda), and to change the name of the WIFI hotspot network (default is mda-hotspot) and the wifi password of the hotspot (default is 12345678). You also have to provide the two-digit country code here (see chapter 7.03).

Note that there is no need to change the MDA name or hotspot name in case of a single MDA. Only if there are multiple MDA’s in your organisation, the MDA’s should not have the same names nor broadcast on the same hotspot SSID’s.
