There are 3 different ways to connect to an LEA amplifier.



1. WIRED


This is the default mode which the amplifier is shipped with. DHCP is enabled on the unit by default to allow the assignment of an IP address. Presently there is no link local IP (169.254.x.x) address assigned to an amplifier in the absence of a DHCP server, which is why there
 should be access on this connection to a DHCP router or switch.

Using a Cat5/Cat6 cable, make a wired Ethernet connection from the computer to the LEA amplifier's RJ45 connection via a local LAN which additionally has access to the DHCP server.





The front display of the amplifier will show the IP address which has been assigned to the amplifier. The connectivity method is additionally shown. In this case it would show 'Wired':





Open up a web browser such as Google Chrome or Firefox and enter the IP address which is presented on the front of the amplifier. You will now have access to the Web GUI.


The connection is 10/100MB FAST Ethernet.



2. AP MODE

Press the 'IEEE 802.11 b/g/n' button on the back of the unit to enabled WiFi mode. A blue LED will turn on. This allows the unit to work as its own wireless access point:





On the front display panel, you will see the wireless access name under the 'AP:' field:



You can then connect your phone, tablet, computer or other device via its WiFi settings (Please see the manual for your device for specific details on how to achieve this). There is no password required to make this connection.

Once connected, you can access the amplifier in the Web GUI by entering the IP address in your device's web browser.


Ensure to disconnect the wired Cat5/Cat6 connection otherwise WAP mode is disabled. Dante connections can remain.



3. WiFi

To access the amplifier by local area WiFI you must have initially connected to the unit via either the Wired or AP mode methods above.


You will only be able to access a single amplifier at a time as the connection is point-to-point.

Via AP Mode:

Once connected, select the network configuration button in the centre of the 5 icon bar:




Enable the WiFi. You will then need to enter the SSID and the password of the wireless DHCP router and press 'SAVE'.

Press the WiFi button on the back of the unit so that it turns green. This changes the mode from AP to WiFi.

The 'AP:' field on the front of the display will be replaced by 'WiFi' and it will soon acquire an IP address.



Via Wired mode:

Once connected, select the network configuration button in the centre of the 5 icon bar.




Enable the WiFi. You will need to enter the SSID and the password of the wireless DHCP router and press 'SAVE'.

The WiFi button on the back of the unit will automatically turn green. The amplifier can now be accessed through wired mode or wireless mode.

The SSID and IP address of the unit will be visible on the front display panel.




You will now have access to the Web GUI.
