IMPORTANT: In order to utilize the Lantronix DeviceInstaller, WiFi needs to be turned off. Lantronix will not work on WiFi.
By default, wireless devices use what is known as DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol), which automatically assigns a dynamic (temporary) IP address for a network. For eight io and eight io+ controllers Ethernet connections, a static (permanent) IP address is REQUIRED; a static IP address is not required for Cloud Nodes.
To set up a static IP address for an Ethernet device, the third-party Lantronix DeviceInstaller application can be used. The suggested static IP address can be obtained from your IT manager or network administrator. The default dynamic IP address that is already assigned to the device by the router may also be used and converted to a static IP address.
Download the Lantronix DeviceInstaller (stand-alone version) from the Lantronix website for the necessary zip file (and DeviceInstaller Help, if necessary) to install and use this application.
