Configure Network Settings on the Hardware

Devices are set by default to Automatic or DHCP mode, which is the recommended mode. This lets a DHCP server set device IP addresses. If no DHCP server is present, the devices will use their default IP addresses. You can also manually define an IP address or subnet mask for a device.

Note: Network instructions for other Shure® models can be found in the hardware guides.

AD4D and AD4Q

  1. From the Device Configuration menu, go to Network Configuration.
  2. Select the SETUP key, and then select NEXT.
  3. Choose one of the following modes:
    • Automatic: Allows the IP address to be assigned automatically when connected to a DHCP server
    • Manual: Manually assign valid values for IP, subnet, and gateway
  4. Press ENTER to save.

AXT400

  1. From the Util menu, select Network.
  2. Turn the control wheel to select one of the following modes:
    • Automatic - Allows the IP address to be set automatically (commonly with a DHCP server).
    • Manual - Allows you to set an IP address or subnet.
  3. To manually define an IP address or subnet, push the control wheel to move the cursor to any of the following parameters and turn the wheel to select a value:
    • IP (IP address) - Each octet of the subnet mask with a value of 255 indicates an octet of the IP address which all devices and computers on the network must share. For example, with a subnet mask of 255.255.0.0, all devices and computers must have the same first two octets of their IP addresses. All other octets must be unique per device and computer.
    • Sub (Subnet mask) - The subnet mask of every device must match the subnet mask of your computer.
  4. Select Enter to save.

UR4D

  1. From the Util menu, select Network.
  2. Turn the control wheel to select one of the following modes:
    • DHCP - Allows the IP address to be set automatically (commonly with a DHCP server).
    • Manual - Allows you to set an IP address or subnet.
  3. To manually define an IP address or subnet, push the control wheel to move the cursor to any of the following parameters and turn the wheel to select a value:
    • IP (IP address) - Each octet of the subnet mask with a value of 255 indicates an octet of the IP address which all devices and computers on the network must share. For example, with a subnet mask of 255.255.0.0, all devices and computers must have the same first two octets of their IP addresses. All other octets must be unique per device and computer.
    • Sub (Subnet mask) - The subnet mask of every device must match the subnet mask of your computer.
  4. Select Enter to save.
Note: The receiver reboots after you press ENTER to accept network parameter changes. Additionally, in dual models, these settings affect both receivers (the dual receiver is treated as a single network device).

P10T

  1. From the Util menu, select Network, then Setup.
  2. Turn the control wheel to select one of the following modes:
    • Automatic - Allows the IP address to be set automatically (commonly with a DHCP server).
    • Manual - Allows you to set an IP address or subnet.
  3. To manually define an IP address or subnet, push the control wheel to move the cursor to any of the following parameters and turn the wheel to select a value:
    • IP (IP address) - Each octet of the subnet mask with a value of 255 indicates an octet of the IP address which all devices and computers on the network must share. For example, with a subnet mask of 255.255.0.0, all devices and computers must have the same first two octets of their IP addresses. All other octets must be unique per device and computer.
    • Sub (Subnet mask) - The subnet mask of every device must match the subnet mask of your computer.
  4. Select Enter to save.

ULXD Receivers

  1. To access menus, select ENTER.
  2. Turn the control wheel to navigate to the UTILITIES menu, and then press ENTER.
  3. Select NETWORKING, then CTRL NETWORK.
  4. Turn the control wheel to select one of the following modes:
    • DHCP - Allows the IP address to be set automatically (commonly with a DHCP server).

    • Sub (Subnet mask) - The subnet mask of every device must match the subnet mask of your computer.
  6. Select Enter to save.

QLXD4

When setting an IP address or subnet address, each of the 4 octets must be edited individually. The following diagram shows how the groups are mapped to the receiver display:

The octets of an IP or subnet address numbered and called out on the receiver screen
  1. Press menu while holding the enter button to access the advanced menu.
  2. Press the menu button to navigate to the IP menu.
  3. Use the arrow buttons to set the mode to St (static) and press enter.
  4. Use the arrow buttons to edit the first group. Press enter to save and continue to the next group.
  5. Use the arrow buttons and enter button to edit the remaining 3 groups.
  6. When group 4 has been edited, the display will show the subnet mask menu. Use the arrow buttons to scroll and select a preset value for each of the subnet mask groups.
  7. When finished, press enter to save settings.
