Wireless Network Configuration
Set a recording and watch recorded shows
When your installer leaves your home after setting up your Home Network Gateway, your
network will be configured and functional. There are a few settings that you may want to
alter at some point in the future that are accessible from the Gateway’s eRouter website
The Home Network feature allows you to stream media from any server in your home, such
as your computer, to your Wave Home Network Gateway. Because the Gateway Server is
DLNA®-based, it is completely plug and play; if your computer is connected to your home
network and has a DLNA server, you should automatically see that computer listed in the
Home Network category of the main menu.
In the horizontal menu, you’ll find the Recorded TV category. All of the recorded and
currently recording shows are listed in the vertical band in alphabetical order. Episodes of
a series are grouped into folders; you’ll see the individual episodes in the preview panel to
the right. To watch a show, select it, and press OK. And if you’ve already watched half of the
show, you can choose whether to resume where you left off or start over from the beginning.
The following DLNA servers have been fully tested with your Wave Home Network Gateway:
Windows Media Player, TVersity Media Server, Windows Media Connect, Twonky
Media Manager, Media Mall PlayOn
Set a Recording
When watching a program or scrolling through
the guide, you can hit the REC button on your
remote. You will see a screen appear allowing
you to set the recording options, and then
confirm the recording. Series recording options
are also available in that list.
Home Network supports the following file types:
• Photo: JPEG, GIF*, BMP* and PNG* files
• Music: MP3, WMA, and AAC (unprotected files), and LPCM files
• Video: MPEG-1, MPEG-2, MPEG-4, H.264, and WMV files
*These file types are available through DLNA® servers that support transcoding. Content that is
protected by Digital Rights Management (DRM) will not be accessible.
See who’s calling and view previous calls
When you’re receiving an incoming call, you’ll see an indicator on the screen no matter
where you are in the menu.
While the indicator is on the screen, other remote
functionality is disabled. The indicator will
automatically dismiss itself after 30 seconds, but
you can dismiss it immediately by pressing OK
and choosing close. You can also use the left arrow
button as a shortcut to dismiss the indicator.
Your Wave Home Network Gateway also maintains a list of calls you’ve received. You can
access this list in two ways: through the Home Phone category or by pressing OK on a call
indicator. Press OK to get an action menu. Options include Clear Call Log, which will delete
the call record, and Settings, which provides a shortcut to the phone settings section.
Watch Recorded Programs
Hit the A button on the remote, or navigate to
the Recorded Shows category in the horizontal
list. You can then highlight the show folder
or individual program. To play an individual
recording, highlight what you want to play,
then press OK on the remote. To play a Series
Recording (under show folder), hit the right
arrow button on your remote, and it will move
you to the list of episodes. Now press OK on the episode you would like to play.
The default username to log in to the website is Admin. Your installer should leave you
with information about your login password. You may, at some point, want to change the
following settings:
SSID: The default SSID for your router is taken from the Wave Home Network Gateway
serial number on the bottom of the Gateway Server. You have the option to change the
SSID to a more friendly, recognizable name.
Passphrase: The passphrase for your wireless network is printed on the label on the
bottom of your Home Network Gateway Server. You may want to change this passphrase
initially to something more secure. In addition, you may want to change it periodically to
maintain security levels.
RF Channel: If you’re experiencing interference from a neighbor’s wireless network, for
example, try changing the RF channel frequency.
If, at any point, you forget your SSID or passphrase and need to access them to add
additional devices to your network, you can press the reset button on the back of your
Gateway Server to reset the router to the default settings.
