Once your hardware is connected to the Cube and it is powered on, we can begin to connect to a network to take your Cube online.
You may use the front panel interface (joystick) or the web UI (accessible by navigating to the Cube’s IP address on your browser) to control and configure Cube to connect to a network. For this tutorial, we will be using the front panel interface to connect to WiFi.
- Using the joystick, navigate through the menu to “Network Settings” and then select the desired network connection option. For this tutorial, we are choosing “WiFi” to connect.
- You can choose between Access Point (AP) Mode and Infrastructure Mode. Choose Access Point Mode to connect your computer to the Cube’s wifi network (Teranet-XXXXX). The XXXXX is the last five digits of the Cube’s serial number. Access Point Mode allows Cube to act as an access point and is primarily used for bonding bandwidth from multiple smartphone LTE connections.
The other option, and the one we are using here, is Infrastructure Mode, which is required to connect Cube to your local network.
- Once selected, click “Scan for Network” and navigate to the intended local WiFi network. Enter that network’s credentials.
Now that your Cube is connected to the internet, the next step is to set up your stream using the web interface. The next tutorial will walk you through these steps.
