Introduction
This unit allows you to listen to audio files or listen to Internet
radio stations on a computer or other component connected
to the unit via LAN interface. This chapter describes the setup
and playback procedures required to enjoy these features. It
is advisory that you also refer to the operation manual
supplied with your network component.
• Photo or video files cannot be played back.
• With Windows Media Player 11 or Windows Media
Player 12, you can even play back copyrighted audio files

performed from the external controller. Volume adjustment
and the muting control are also possible. The DMR mode is
canceled if the remote control unit is operated while in the
DMR mode (aside from certain buttons, including the
VOLUME +/–, MUTE and DISP OFF).
• Depending on the external controller being used,
playback may be interrupted when the volume is
adjusted from the controller. In this case, adjust the
volume from the unit or remote control.

Wireless LAN
Problem Check Remedy
Network cannot be accessed
via wireless LAN.
Is Network Type set to Auto and
the LAN cable connected to the unit?
Switch Network Type to Wireless or disconnect the LAN cable
from the unit, then restart the unit.
If Network Type is set to Auto and the LAN cable is connected to
the unit, the unit recognizes the Network Type as Wired.
This unit and base unit (wireless LAN
router, etc.) are too far apart or there
is an obstacle between them.
Improve the wireless LAN environment by moving the unit and base
unit closer together, etc.
There is a microwave oven or other
device generating electromagnetic
waves near the wireless LAN
environment.
Use the system in a place away from microwave ovens or others
device generating electromagnetic waves.
Avoid using devices generating electromagnetic waves as much as
possible when using the system with the wireless LAN.
Multiple wireless devices are
connected to the wireless LAN
router.
When connecting multiple wireless devices, their IP addresses
must be changed.
Wireless LAN connections cannot be
established between the unit and
base unit (wireless LAN router, etc.).
The unit must be set in order to establish wireless LAN
connections. See Connecting using wireless LAN on page 7.
The IP address settings of the unit
does not match the settings of the
wireless LAN router, etc.
Check the IP address settings of the unit (including the DHCP
setting).
If the unit’s DHCP setting is on, turn the unit’s power off, then turn
the power back on.
Check that the IP address of the unit matches the settings of the
wireless LAN router, etc.
If the unit’s DHCP setting is off, set an IP address matching the
network of the base unit (wireless LAN router, etc.).
For example, if the wireless LAN router’s IP address is
“192.168.1.1”, set the unit’s IP address to “192.168.1.XXX” (*1), the
subnet mask to “255.255.255.0”, the gateway and DNS to
“192.168.1.1”.
(*1) Set the “XXX” in “192.168.1.XXX” to a number between 2 and
248 that is not assigned to other devices.
The access point is set to conceal the
SSID.
In this case, the SSID may not be displayed on the access point list
screen. If not, set the SSID, etc., by making the wireless LAN
settings on the unit manually.
The access point’s security settings
use WEP 152-bit length code key or
shared key authentication.
The unit does not support WEP 152-bit length code key or shared
key authentication.
