INTRODUCTION
What Is the iStream HD Adapter?
Thank you for purchasing the Intellinet Network Solutions iStream HD™ Wireless
Media Adapter. The iStream HD is the ideal solution for connecting your Web TV
(IPTV), gaming console or other Ethernet-ready media device to your wireless
home network. The iStream HD eliminates the need to locate your gaming system
or other entertainment devices near an Internet connection, and because it uses a
Cat5e / Cat6 cable to connect to your device, there’s no need to use up one of
your valuable USB ports. Setup is incredibly easy, and the iStream HD works with
all gaming systems, as well as all IPTVs, DVRs, Blu-ray players and other such
devices with an Ethernet port.
The iStream HD allows you to enjoy a completely lag-free online gaming
experience from your Xbox 360, PS2, PS3 or Wii system, or watch streaming video
in full HD (1080p with 5.1 stereo surround) on such services as Netflix, Hulu or
YouTube via your Web-ready HDTV, Blu-ray player or other media device. Even
better, the iStream HD is quick and easy to set up.

RJ45 Network Port
The iStream adapter is equipped with a high-speed network port, which is
designed to connect your Internet-ready TV, Blu-ray player or gaming console to
the iStream adapter. You can use the included network cable for that purpose. Of
course, should you require a longer connection between the iStream adapter and
your device, it is no problem to use any standard Ethernet network cable that
meets or exceeds the Cat5 specification. If you are not sure about this, don’t
worry. Any standard network cable purchased from various retailers or online
shops will work just fine.
WPS Push-Button
Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS) is a computing standard that attempts to allow easy
establishment of secure wireless home-network connections. Created by the Wi-Fi
Alliance and introduced in 2007, the goal of the protocol is to allow home users
who know little of wireless security and may be intimidated by the available
security options to set up the encryption method WPA2, as well as making it easy
to add new devices to an existing network without entering long passphrases.
So, what does this all mean for you? If your wireless router is a newer device,
there is a good chance that it is equipped with a WPS push-button, in which case
you are in luck, because adding the iStream adapter to your network will just be a
matter of a couple of minutes. If the router is a little bit older and does not
support WPS, it will take a little bit longer.
Power On / Off Switch
When it’s not in use, you can power down the iStream adapter to save energy.
Since the connection to your wireless network is re-established in less than a
minute after startup, there are no downsides to powering down the iStream
adapter when it is not used.
Power Outlet Connector
The iStream adapter plugs directly into a power wall outlet. It supports 110V 60
Hz for U.S. and 230V 50 Hz for European power outlets. The plug type will vary,
depending on your location. The illustration above depicts the U.S. version of the
iStream adapter.

Item
Fragment Threshold
RTS Threshold
Channel Width
WMM
Description
The fragmentation threshold is used to set the maximum size of
a packet that a client will send. The smaller the maximum sizes,
the better the reliability of the wireless connection — but the
performance is likely to decrease. Leave this value as 2346
unless you have a very poor wireless signal. Lowering the value
can help improve the connection in such cases.
In case you experience poor wireless performance, you can try
using values between 1200 and 500, and below 500 in severe
cases. The default value is 2347, and that should normally not be
modified.
Select the wireless channel width. 40MHz provides better
network speed for 802.11n wireless clients. “Auto 20/40 MHz” is
the recommended value.
Enable or disable Wireless Multi-Media. When enabled, this
device will give priority to multimedia-related network
applications so they will have better performance. It is
recommended to leave this option enabled.
If you wish to deactivate the LEDs of the iStream HD, you can do so here. You
have the choice of either turning off all LEDs or all but the Power LED.

Password settings:
By default, accessing the iStream HD advanced configuration does not require a
password. To prevent someone from overwriting some settings, you can enter a
new password here.
Current Password: Enter the current password (default = 1234) here.
New Password: Type in the new password.
Re-Enter password: Type in the new password again.
Management IP:
The default IP address for the iStream HD is 192.168.2.254.
The IP address of the adapter does not necessarily need to be in range of the
wireless network. The IP address range has no impact on the function of the
device. However, if you wish to adjust the IP address to make accessing the
configuration interface easier — e.g., because your wireless network range is
192.168.0.xxx — then you can make changes to the address here.
Click “Apply” to save the settings.
- 20 -
The Restore to Factory Default function should be used if you wish to overwrite the
entire configuration with the original factory default values. This is recommended
after you upgrade the firmware.
Click the “Reset” button to start the process and confirm your decision by clicking
“OK” when you see this dialog:
From time to time there may be new firmware available for the iStream HD.
In order to install new firmware, proceed as follows:
1. Click “Browse…” to locate the firmware (.BIN file).
2. Click “Apply.”
3. Confirm the message “Do you wish to begin the firmware upgrade?”
4. Confirm the second message shown below:
5. The upgrade will begin now. During the process the iStream HD will display
several messages for you.
- 21 -
After the upgrade you should reset the iStream HD to factory default values (see
above).
In the event that the iStream HD seems to be performing poorly, a reboot of the
adapter may help resolve the problem. The System Restart function is designed to
let you do exactly that without physically touching the device.
Click “Apply” to restart the iStream media adapter.
Click “OK” to continue.

FACTORY RESET
The iStream HD Wireless Media Adapter can be reset to the original factory default
settings two ways.
Option 1: Factory reset via advanced configuration menu.
See chapter “Advanced configuration menu options” for details.
Option 2: Hardware reset
The iStream HD adapter must be powered on. Push the WPS button for 15
seconds, and then release it. The iStream HD will reboot and will have reverted to
the original factory default settings.

TROUBLESHOOTING
Symptom
How to address
The Power LED is not lit.
Make sure that the power switch on the iStream HD is set to the
“On” position. In addition, check and make sure that the power
outlet provides power.
Check the network connection between the iStream HD and the
Ethernet port of the device you’re connecting. The network
cable must be inserted properly and the Ethernet device must
be turned on. Try using a different network cable, if available.
The WPS LED lights only if an existing wireless connection was
established by means of WPS. If you created the connection
manually, or if no wireless connection has been set up, the WPS
LED will stay off.
The WLAN LED should always light, whether a wireless
connection has been established or not. It essentially indicates
that the wireless module has started successfully. If the LED is
off, yet you have a working wireless connection, the LED may
simply have failed. If you cannot connect to any wireless
network, the iStream adapter needs to be replaced through
your dealer (place of purchase).
Whenever the iStream HD is connected to a wireless network,
or is in the process of connecting, the Signal LED will light. If
the Signal LED is off, it means that the iStream HD has not been
configured to access any network.
The WPS button needs to be pressed firmly for 15 seconds while
the iStream HD is powered on. If it still does not work, it either
means that the WPS button is malfunctioning or that you are
doing it wrong.
WPS may be disabled in the router settings, or you have not
pressed the WPS button on the iStream HD within 120 seconds
of pushing the button on the router.
Refer to the section “Manual Installation.”
If the wireless network is password-protected, then you can
either connect the iStream HD via WPS (should your wireless
router support it) or manually by entering the wireless
passphrase. If you have forgotten the password, there is no way
of connecting the iStream HD to your wireless network. Your
only way out is to set up your wireless network with a new
password.
You can’t — with one exception: the Nintendo Wii.
iStream HD is designed for devices with integrated Ethernet
RJ45 network ports. The Nintendo Wii does not have an RJ45
port; therefore, connecting the Wii console to the iStream HD
requires the use of the Wii LAN adapter (sold separately).
NOTE: Non-Nintendo–manufactured USB LAN adapters will not
work with the Wii console system. The Wii LAN adapter plugs
into the Wii console's USB port and allows the connection of a
device to the Wii console via an Ethernet cable.
See the Nintendo website (www.nintendo.com) for details.

- 24 -
Symptom
How to address
Can I use the iStream HD
as a wireless adapter for
my computer?
The signal LED flashes
rapidly and there is no
wireless connection for my
Web-ready TV or gaming
console.
The Signal LED flashes
slowly and the network
connection for my Webready TV or gaming system
seems slow.
Netflix movies take a long
time to start playing.
Indeed you can. Simply set up the iStream HD as usual and
connect it to the computer’s network port when finished.
iStream HD now acts as a wireless adapter for your computer.
The flashing LED means that the signal strength is too weak to
create a reliable wireless connection. Try re-locating or repositioning the iStream adapter. As long as the LED keeps
flashing at a rapid pace, you won’t be able to use the iStream
HD adapter in any reasonable fashion.
The wireless signal strength is not optimal. Depending on the
content you are transmitting over the wireless connection,
occasional slow-downs can indeed occur. To improve the
performance try re-locating or re-positioning the iStream HD
adapter.
That is called buffering. Depending on your Internet connection
speed (main factor) and the wireless connection speed of the
iStream adapter (contributing factor), the buffering can take
more than a minute. What happens here is that a good chunk of
the movie is pre-loaded before the playback starts, so that the
movie will not pause during playback.
Rule of thumb: The slower your Internet connection speed, the
longer the buffering will take. If you want instant streaming of
standard definition content, your Internet download speed must
be at least 2 Mbps. If you expect instant-on HD contents,
speeds greater than 5 Mbps are recommended.
Netflix analyzes the connection speed between the client (your
Xbox, PlayStation, IPTV, etc.) and the Netflix server. Depending
on the result of that test you will get video that is optimized for
your connection speed. In order to receive Netflix HD 1080p
video, your Internet connection needs to be providing a steady,
low-latency connection of more than 5 Mbps.
These symptoms clearly show that connection speed between
the Netflix client — for example, your Internet-ready TV — and
the Netflix online service is not fast enough. There are many
possible reasons for this.
The iStream HD adapter is
supposed to stream HD
video contents, yet I only
receive standard-definition
contents from Netflix.
My Internet service is fast
enough, yet I still
experience a lot of buffering
and I only receive standarddefinition video when using
Netflix or other forms of
online video streaming,
such as YouTube.
1. If you are experiencing these problems mostly in the
evenings and on weekends, this points to your Internet
connection as the cause for the problem. While your service
provider can tell you how much bandwidth is available for your
service package, this bandwidth can fluctuate greatly,
depending on the time of day and the service provider’s total
available bandwidth for all of its clients.
There are also websites available online that you can visit that
will test and measure the bandwidth that is available on your
existing home network. If you perform a test on your computer
and are receiving less bandwidth than expected, contact your
Internet service provider to troubleshoot the issue. One popular
site is speedtest.net.
For example, if you test your connection speed in the evening
and you are getting something like this …
- 25 -
… and when you repeat the test in the morning you’re getting
something like this …
.
… it means that the bottleneck is your Internet connection, and
not your local wireless network. Contact your Internet service
provider to troubleshoot the issue.
2. If the problems occur all the time, and your Internet
connection speed is fast for computers and other devices
connected directly to the wireless router, the problem can
indeed be related to the iStream HD adapter and its connection
speed to the wireless network. A good way to test this is to first
measure your Internet speed with a computer that is connected
to the router. Then connect the computer to the LAN port of the
iStream adapter and repeat the test. It would be normal that
the results are not quite as high, but if you experience a
significant decrease, then the wireless connection between the
iStream adapter and your wireless network is not optimal. Try
re-locating or re-positioning the iStream HD.
I experience more lag when
playing online games
compared to before, when
my gaming console was
connected with a network
cable.
I am setting up my gaming
console for wireless access,
but it does not work. I
cannot connect to the
network.
How can I use the iStream
with my Nintendo Wii?
3. Someone may be freeloading. Ensure that your connection is
secure. You may be unknowingly sharing your connection with
others nearby if using an unsecured wireless network setup.
It is not out of the ordinary for ping times to increase ever so
slightly when you switch from a wired to a wireless connection.
The effects become more pronounced if the wireless connection
is poor. Typically, though, online gaming will not be affected in
a negative way. If you require best possible ping times and
lowest possible lag without any compromises, then a wireless
connection for your gaming console may not be the right choice
for you. A 500 Mbps Powerline AV starter kit may serve you
better in this case.
You need to set up your gaming console for regular Ethernet
cable-based access, not wireless. iStream HD is a wireless
device; however, as far as your gaming console is concerned, it
is connected with a regular network cable. iStream is
“transparent” in the network and your gaming console does not
even know it is there.
You need to connect a Wii LAN adapter to your Wii in order to
connect the iStream adapter. See Addendum.
