This guide will go through the installation and setup of the AirServer Connect 2 for the first time.
Unpacking and mounting
Included in the packaging are a universal power adapter and a VESA mount plate.
Universal power supply
The power supply comes with adapters for Europe (Schuko), UK (BS 1363), North America (NEMA 1-15P) and Australia (AS/NZS 3112). The adapters snap into place and can be removed by pressing down on the tab on the adapter and pushing the adapter away from the cable.
The VESA mount hole spacing is 75 x 75 mm and 100 x 100 mm. Two screws for attaching the AirServer Connect to the VESA mount are included. These screws are fastened to the bottom of the AirServer Connect. Four mounting screws are also included.
Plug in the cables
On the back of the device, plug in an HDMI cable (A), Ethernet cable (B) and the power supply (C). Note that AirServer Connect 2 works using Wi-Fi or without network connectivity, but we recommend Ethernet for optimal performance.
The front of the device has a power button and a power indicator light as well as two USB ports that are covered. The USB ports can be used for connecting a touchscreen.
Turn on AirServer Connect 2 by pressing the power button. To start the configuration follow the on-screen instructions.
If the AirServer Connect 2 is connected to a network using an Ethernet cable, Quick Setup can be done through a web browser on a computer or mobile device on the same network. Type in the IP address shown in the instructions and at the bottom left of the homescreen. Once the Device Management page has loaded, type in the setup PIN to get started.
If the AirServer Connect 2 is not connected using an Ethernet cable, you must first connect a computer or a mobile device to the Guest Wi-Fi shown in the Guest Access section on the on-screen menu. You can then type the IP address shown in the instructions into your browser to start the Quick Setup.
The Quick Setup guides you through the basic settings for the AirServer Connect 2:
- Password protection for Device Management
- Device/Room name
- Homescreen layout
- Screen mirroring preferences
Once setup is completed, all settings can be accessed by selecting Advanced Settings. The on-screen display will no longer show the Quick Setup instructions.
It is recommended to log into advanced settings and check for updates in the Updates section, as new firmware may be available. Firmware release notes can be found here.
