Can I manually assign an IP address to Camio Box itself?

Yes, you can manually assign an IP address to Camio Box if your network prohibits the use of DHCP.

NOTE: Normally, you should stick with Camio Box's default setting to use of DHCP to obtain its IP address dynamically. Camio Box has no need for inbound network connections, so there is never a reason to reference it by a static IP address. However, some corporate networks require special authentication that blocks use of DHCP. In that case, you can manually assign an IP address, subnet mask, gateway router, and DNS Servers using the dropdown menu option Change network settings in the upper right of your camio.com/boxes page.

To assign an IP address manually:

  1. Make sure your registered Box is powered-on and connected to a DHCP-enabled network.
  2. Open your camio.com/boxes page.
  3. Choose Change network settings from the dropdown menu to the right of the Box's name:
  4. Enter all fields carefully, since a data entry error will disconnect the Box from the network and require a manual reset:
  5. Press Save to apply the new settings. The Box will take about 20 seconds to restart with the new settings.

To return to the default use of DHCP:

  1. choose Using DHCP from the same menu panel:
  2. Press Save to apply the new settings. The Box will take about 20 seconds to restart with the new settings.

If you're unlucky and enter incorrect values that disconnect Camio Box from the network, then read how to reset settings manually with the use of a USB stick.
