Using The Setup Wizard
To obtain a new IP address from the DFL-200 you may need to restart your computer or
release and renew your IP address. First make sure that the network adapter in your
computer is configured properly. Instructions for configuring the network adapter to
obtain an IP address automatically from the DFL-200 can be found in the Appendix.

address box. Then press the Enter
or Return key.
The IP Address shown in the example above is the default setting. The DFL-200 Connection

the unit to the factory default settings (Note: Resetting the unit to the factory default
settings will erase any changes you have made to the unit).
Welcome to the DFL-200 connection wizard!
