Before you can use this product
Before you can use your Internet radio, you must have the following:
A broadband Internet connection.
A wireless access point (Wi-Fi) or a wired Ethernet connection
(10 or 100 Mbits/sec with RJ45 connection; For RCR-7 only)
connected to your broadband Internet, preferably via a router.
In many cases the broadband modem, router and wireless access
point will be a single combined unit supplied by your Internet Service
Provider or bought from a computer store.
If your wireless network is configured to use Wired Equivalent
Privacy (WEP) or Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA) data encryption
then you need to know the WEP or WPA key so you can get the
Internet radio to communicate with the network.
The Internet radio will typically work within a 10-20 meter radius from
your wireless access point. The actual range achieved will depend upon
the building type, other nearby wireless networks, and possible
interference sources.
IMPORTANT:
Before you continue, make sure that your wireless access point or
router is powered up and working with your broadband Internet service
(use your computer to verify this). To get this part of the system working
you must read the instructions supplied with the wireless access point
or router.

Connecting your radio to your network
1. Place your radio on a surface and plug the mains lead into the Mains
input socket located on the rear of your radio (marked
) ensuring
that the plug is pushed fully into the socket.
2. Plug the other end of the mains lead into a wall socket and switch on
the wall socket.
There are 2 days of connecting your radio to the network,
wired and wireless:
When using a wired (LAN) network (For RCR-7WF only)
1. Connect the Ethernet cable into the RJ-45 socket at the back of
the radio. If a wired connection is present then the radio will use this
in preference to a wireless connection.
There are two indicator lights incorporated into the RJ-45 connector.
If you have problems with your wired connection, they may help you
to identify the possible cause of the problem.
Green ON = Link established, Flashing = Data transfer
Yellow ON = 100M bps link, OFF = 10M bps link.

You therefore need to enter the correct WEP or WPA key into the
radio to allow it to communicate with your network.
If you do not have the WEP or WPA key, then you should obtain it
from the person who set your network. Some Wi-Fi routers may
come with a key already set up by the supplier, in which case you
should refer to the user documentation provided with it.
5. After 3 seconds, the display goes into the key entry mode. To enter
the key, use the Tuning+/- buttons to select each character of the
key in turn, pressing the Select button after each character.
Remember, WEP keys only use the numbers 0 - 9 and letters A - F.
WPA keys are sensitive to upper and lower case characters so you
must enter them exactly.

Operation after you set up for Window Shares,
UPnP or USB/SD card
Whether you access your files using Windows Shares, UPnP or USB
and SD card, the file selection mechanisms are the same. The only
difference is that when using UPnP you will generally have a wider
choice of search criteria, as determined by the UPnP server software on
your computer. Some third party server applications allow customization
of the search criteria and indexing methods, which can be useful if you
have a very large collection of stored music files.
The selection mechanism allows you to search by a given information
type (Album, Artist, etc.) and then to narrow the search, either just to
an album or to a particular track within an album. The selected album or
track is then added to a queue of tracks to be played. You can add more
albums or tracks to the queue while music is playing, or you can jump
between tracks in the queue. You can also clear the queue if you wish
to make a fresh selection. The searches described here are examples
of the possibilities available.

Troubleshooting
If you have difficulty connecting the radio to your wireless network,
some of these steps may help to resolve the problem:
1. Confirm that a Wi-Fi connected PC can access the Internet
(i.e. can browse the web) using the same network.
2. Check that a DHCP server is available, or that you have configured a
static IP address on the radio. You can configure a static IP address
on the radio using the menu item “ Setting -> Network Config ->
Edit Config” , and then select ‘No’ for ‘Auto (DHCP)’.
(by pressing the Tuning+/- and the Select buttons)
5. If you have an encrypted network, check that you have entered the
correct key or pass-phrase into the radio. Remember that text-format
WPA keys are case sensitive. If your radio displays ‘Wireless error’
when attempting to connect to an encrypted network followed by a
5-digit number, then please ensure that you enter the correct
pass-phrase for the network. If the problem persists, then you may
need to consult your network configuration.
If your radio can connect to the network successfully, but is unable to
play particular stations, it may be due to one of the following causes:
1. The station is not broadcasting at this time of the day
(remember it may be located in a different time zone).
3. Check that your network’s firewall is not blocking any outgoing ports.
As a minimum, the radio needs access to UDPand TCPports 80,
554, 1755, 5000 and 7070. The use of Windows Shares requires
access to UDP and TCP ports 135 - 139 and 445. Windows Media
Player 11 will allocate a port number for UPnP media sharing and
will configure Microsoft’s Windows built-in firewall appropriately.
Other firewall software may require configuration for UPnP or to
allow particular IP addresses to have trusted access.
2. The station has reached the maximum allowed number of
simultaneous listeners.
4. Check that your access point does not restrict connections to
particular MAC addresses. You can view the radio’s MAC address
using the menu item “ Setting -> Network Config -> View Config ->
MAC address” . Note that the radio has both wired and wireless
MAC addresses.
6. The radio station is broadcasting using an audio format which is not
playable by your radio (although your radio does play almost all
formats used by regular broadcasters).
3. The Internet connection between your radio and the server
(often located in a different country) is slow.
4. The station is not broadcasting any more.
5. The link to the audio stream used by the radio is out of date.
Try using a PC to play back the stream via the broadcaster’s web site.
If you can play back the station with a PC, use the form at
http://www. reciva.com to notify Reciva so that they can update the
station data that is used by the radio.
