Set static IP address

Webcaster X2 generally uses DHCP to acquire an IP address on your network. From time to time, you may find you need to assign Webcaster X2 a static IP address instead.

To assign a static IP address you need:

    • Your Webcaster X2
    • An HDMI display (that supports 1080p video) connected to your Webcaster X2
    • A USB mouse connected to your Webcaster X2
    • (OPTIONAL) a USB keyboard connected to your Webcaster X2
