Network connections

To use the UPnP media sharing feature, you will need either a wired Ethernet or Wi-Fi connection to your network
To use internet radio, Streaming Services or to receive product software updates you will also need a broadband internet connection.
Use a wired connection for seamless playback of high-resolution 24-bit/176kHz and 24-bit/192kHz files.

Connecting to a wired network


Connect a network cable (Category 5/5E straight-through Ethernet cable) between the CXN v2 and your router.

Connecting to a wireless network


It will need to be in the range of your wireless router.

Important note: Do not plug/unplug the wireless dongle when the unit is on.

On an iOS device go to Wi-Fi settings and select 'CXN v2'. Alternatively, connect the CXN v2 directly to the Wi-Fi network: Select your Wi-Fi network and then enter your password.

Note: Wi-Fi network passwords are case sensitive.

For further information on CXN v2 network settings please see the "Settings >> Network" section later in this manual.
