By default the ethernet port is configured as a client but the WiFI is configured as a Hotspot. If you want to connect to an existing network via ethernet, you should just be able to plug your BomeBox into an available ethernet jack on your router.
However, if you want you BomeBox to connect to your existing network, you will need to set up WiFI as a client.
To do this, from your computer, you disconnect from existing WiFi network and then look for a SSID called \"BomeBox\". Make sure the WiFI light is on, on your BomeBox and if it is not, press the WiFi button. It will start blinking and then go solid.
Once your computer shows connected input the following address on your web browser:
You should the be able to get to a login page on your BomeBox. The password will be the serial number on the bottom of the box. Once you are logged in, you will need to change the password.
Once the password is changed, you can then go to the network setting page and set up your BomeBox Wireless as a DHCP client. To do so you will also need to enter the network SSID and password for your existing network (just like you had to do for your computers). After this is set up, then you can remove and reapply power to the BomeBox and it will come up on your existing network just like your computers. Of course the computer you used to set this up on BomeBox should now disconnect and you can re-connect to the original (existing) network.
Your BomeBox should then be discovered by Bome Network and you can use the Bome Network tool (in the system tray) to connect to your BomeBox, set up MIDI routes. You should then see your BomeBox name as a MIDI port on your computer and you should see the computer names on the BomeNetwork as MIDI ports on your BomeBox.
There are several tutorials that may help with this whole process.
Oh, if you mess up and cannot get to your BomeBox web config in any way, please follow the instructions for resetting the BomeBox network back to it\'s default and start over.
Of course if you simply want a point to point WiFi connection just between BomeBox (as a HotSpot) and your computers, all you need to do is to connect them both to the BomeBox Hotspot to access them that way, but you do, you will not have access to your existing internet connection.
Let me know if this helps.
