How do I assign a static IP address to my media player?

If you need to assign a static IP address to your Windows-based media player in order to access your network, please follow the steps below.

  1. Shut Down Menu Software. This can be accomplished by hitting “ctrl + tab” on an attached mouse and keyboard. A pop up window will appear and ask if you want to quit the Navori software; note sometimes you have to hit “alt + tab” to bring up the dialogue box. Please click on the “OK” button. In the rare event that doesn’t happen you can end the task in task manager. “ctrl + alt + del” will bring up the task manager. Then end
    the task labeled “NavoriQLEngine”.

  2. Open Network Sharing Center. Navigate to the control panel. It is in the start menu on the right hand side under “computer”. Find “network and sharing center” it is usually located in the 4th column midway down (if using small icons).


  3. Pulling Up The IPv4 Address. Click on "Network and Sharing Center". Then, "Change adapter settings". Right-click on your the active ethernet device and select "Properties". Select “Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4), then click the "Properties" button.

  4. Assigning a static IP. The above steps will result in a dialogue box to appear with a few options. Click the button next to “Use the following IP address:” Enter your IP address, subnet mask, and gateway, if your router has a DNS server no need to put a DNS server in, if however you are not sure the best practice is to use google: 8.8.8.8, and 8.8.4.4. Make sure to click “ok” when finished then “close” twice. It may take a few minutes to be back on the network again.
