Hello there and welcome to Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** I will be assisting you today. I am an engineer with over 30 years of electrical and electronic training, repair and installation experience. I will try and answer your question accurately and precisely so that we can get you on your way.
Have you successfully connected anything else to the router? If so, please tell me what.Thanks.
What I mean is: do you have phones, iPads, computers, laptops etc. connected to that router?If so, which device(s)?
Ok, on your iPhone, click on SETTINGS. Then click on WIFI. Then find your network SSID - it will be the one the phone is connected to and click the round circle with the letter 'i' in it.On the next page will be listed the IP address of the router. Do not confuse it with the IP address of the phone. It will be the third item listed.
Is that what you are looking for?
Ok, normally, the router will hand out IP addresses to anything that wants one. This is called DHCP. If, instead, you want to assign a static IP address to the Russound, it will be an address that shares the first three numbers with the router and then has a 4th number between 1 and 254. Typically, you would pick a number quite high in that range to ensure you're not using one that has already been assigned by the router using DHCP.So for example, if your router is 192.168.1.1 then pick any number between 192.168.1.2 and 192.168.1.254I would use a number over 200.That should work.Let me know if you need further help.Steve
I'm going to have to look at that for you.Can you tell me the model of the amp you are using please?
Ok, hold on please.
OK, so this controller does not have WiFi. I assume that you have it plugged in directly to your router using ethernet? Specifically from the RJ45 jack on t he back labeled 'ETHERNET'?
Well then it should be assigned an IP address by the router through the Apple box..Do this: on your iPhone, go to the app store and download a free program called 'Net Analyzer Lite'. Download and install it and then run a scan on your network and see if the amp is listed.You do have the amp plugged into one of the LAN ports on the Time Capsule and not the WAN port??
Ok, so it's not getting an address.Unplug the Russound and Apple box from wall power. Wait 30 seconds.Plug in the Apple, wait 60 secs.Plug in the Russound. Wait 30-60 seconds and do a scan.If still no luck, we have to rule out that ethernet cable first. Do you have another?
Ok, well do the unplugging thing first and see what happens.
Any luck, I do have to log off at Noon EST for a couple of hours. I will be back on as quick as I can after that.
Ok, I'll be here.
Happy New Year.
I'm back. I was away for less time than I anticipated.If you wish to continue, just let me know.Thanks.
