Check the available guaranteed bandwidth with your ISP.
Recommended bandwidth: To ensure smooth playing of Internet video resources, the
bandwidth should be at least 2Mbps.
Router: For easy and quick connection, a wireless router is recommended. A common
wireless router can meet the bandwidth requirement for ITPV. The HD509N Set-Top-Box
integrates a Wi-Fi module, which can connect to wireless router directly. When you intend
to stream high quality movies from internal network, an Ethernet cable connection is
recommended.

• After turning on the cable network, check if the “Cable Network” is selected; if DHCP
(Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol) is enabled in the router, this unit will obtain IP
