Chapter 2: Getting Started
2.1 Hardware Installation
Please fasten the wireless antenna and the FM antenna to appropriate
antenna connectors at the rear panel of the device. If you prefer to use
Ethernet for wired network connection, please plug in your Ethernet
cable to the LAN (RJ45) port.
Please plug in the DC power adapter to the outlet and the DC power
jack carefully.
To operate the device, you can use both the supplied remote control
and also the keypad buttons.
2.2 Software Installation
AIRMM01F can work as a stand-alone device or as a media streamer
of a media server. As a stand-alone unit, you can use it to listen to
Internet radio, FM radio, and external USB storage/MP3 players. No
computer is needed.
For digital music files that are stored in your computer, you need to
install streaming server software in the computer so that AIRMM01F
can request the streaming service from that server.
AIRMM01F is compliant to UPnP protocol. It works with media server
software such as Microsoft Windows Media Player 11 (WMP11),
Microsoft Media Connect 2.0 (WMC2.0), and Musicmatch Jukebox.
Once you have the software installed on the computer, you can stream
your music collection to AIRMM01F.
Please find Appendix A and B for instructions on how to connect
AIRMM01F to your computer via WMP11, and WMC2.0.

Chapter 3: Configuration
There are three modes of network configuration for AIRMM01F. It can be a
wireless client, a wired client, or even a wireless access point (Wireless AP).
3.1 Configure as an Wireless Client
The factory default mode is the wireless client code. According to the
availability of an Ethernet cable, the device will automatically select a
suitable client mode to operate. User can also manually change the setting of network configuration through the Setup menu “Setup/Advanced
Setup/Configure Network”.
AIRMM01F will connect wirelessly if it detects an 802.11b/g wireless
network. With no Ethernet cable attached, you just need to power on the
device and AIRMM01F will automatically enter the wireless client mode.
To connect AIRMM01F to the wireless network for the first time, you will
need to set the encryption key for a secured network. Once the setting is
finished, the device will remember the related settings and try to connect
to the designated AP when it is power on next time. However, if there
is something trouble in connecting to the designated AP, the device will
show the AP list screen for you to configure again
