How do I Assign a Static IP Address on my Xhibit device?

The Xhibit has a built-in WiFi adaptor that allows you connect to virtually any type of network.  While Xhibit comes configured to DHCP by default, many users need to assign a static IP for security purposes. The following knowledge base article explains how to setup a static IP address on your Xhibit device.
 

What You'll Need

  • Mvix Xhibit
  • Internet Connectivity
  • Player(s) to manage
  • USB mouse & keyboard

If you meet the requirements listed above, simply follow the steps below to configure a static IP on your device.
 
 
  • Click the Network Manager applet on your taskbar. Choose "Edit Connections..." from the drop-down menu.
  • If you cannot see the taskbar, press and hold Alt, and press Tab to switch to the desktop.
 
 
  • Click on the either "Wired Connection 1" or the name of the wireless network you want to connect to, depending on whether or not you are using a wired connection.
