Precautions for wireless Internet
●●
The Evolution Kit supports the IEEE 802.11 a /b /g /n /ac communication protocols. Samsung recommends
using IEEE 802.11n. Video files stored on a device connected to the Evolution Kit via a Home Network may not
play back smoothly.
""
Some of the IEEE 802.11 communication protocols may not be supported depending on the model.
●●
To use wireless Internet, the Evolution Kit must be connected to a wireless router or modem. If the wireless
router supports DHCP, the Evolution Kit can use a DHCP or static IP address to connect to the wireless
network.
●●
Select a channel that is not currently in use for the wireless router. If the channel set for the wireless router is
currently being used by another device, the result is usually interference and/or a communications failure.
●●
Most wireless networks have an optional security system. To enable a wireless network's security system,
you need to create a password using characters and numbers. This password is then needed to connect to a
security-enabled AP.
Wireless security protocols
The Evolution Kit only supports the following wireless network security protocols.
––
Authentication Modes: WEP, WPAPSK, WPA2PSK
––
Encryption Types: WEP, TKIP, AES
The Evolution Kit cannot connect to non-certified wireless routers.
In compliance with the newest Wi-Fi certification specifications, the Evolution Kit do not support WEP or TKIP
security encryption in networks running in the 802.11n mode. If the wireless router supports WPS (Wi-Fi Protected
Setup), you can connect the Evolution Kit to your network using PBC (Push Button Configuration) or a PIN (Personal
Identification Number). WPS automatically configures the SSID and WPA key settings.

Read Before Playing Photo, Video, or Music Files
Read this information before playing media content.
Limitations on use of photo, video, and music files Try Now
●●
The Evolution Kit supports MSC (Mass Storage Class) USB devices only. MSC is a class designation for mass
storage devices. Types of MSC devices include external hard drives, flash card readers, and digital cameras.
(USB hubs are not supported.) These kinds of devices must be connected directly to the USB port. The
Evolution Kit may not be able to recognise a USB device or read the files on the device if it is connected with a
USB extension cable. Do not disconnect USB devices while they are transferring files.
●●
When connecting an external hard drive, use the USB (HDD) port. We recommend that you use an external
hard drive with its own power adapter.
●●
Certain digital cameras and audio devices may not be compatible with the Evolution Kit.
●●
If there are multiple USB devices connected to the Evolution Kit, the Evolution Kit might not be able to
recognise some or all the devices. USB devices that use high-power input should be connect to the USB [5V,
1A] port.
●●
The Evolution Kit supports the FAT, exFAT, and NTFS file systems.
●●
After sorting files in the Folder view mode, the Evolution Kit can display up to 1,000 files per folder. If the USB
device contains more than 8,000 files and folders, however, some files and folders might not be accessible.
●●
Certain files, depending on how they are encoded, may not play on the Evolution Kit.
●●
Certain files are not supported on all models.
