Troubleshooting
If you are having trouble connecting to your Audia, there are a few utilities you can use to help
determine why

IPCONFIG

To see what IP address your machine has do the following:

    1.   Click on Start, select All Programs. Go to Accessories and select Command Prompt
    2.   This will bring up a dos windows with a C:\>prompt
    3.   Type IPCONFIG and hit ENTER
    4.   You will see a list of your adaptors and their IP addresses
    5.   If you see an adaptor that is not configured correctly, make sure it is the one you are trying to use. It is
         common for wireless adaptors to show Media Disconnected when you are using a wired connection
    6.   The specific things you are looking for are Media Disconnected, and IP address of 0.0.0.0 or an IP address
         that starts with 169.254.
    7.   If you see Media Disconnected, check your cables
    8.   If you see an IP address of 0.0.0.0, either reboot your computer or go to the Network Configuration
         section in Windows (see above) and right click on the card to select Repair
    9.   If you see an IP address that starts with 169.254, you are still configured to use DHCP. Follow the
         instructions in Changing a Computer’s IP Address above

PING

If you have a valid IP address, you can check your connectivity by using the PING command

    1.   Click on Start, select All Programs. Go to Accessories and select Command Prompt
    2.   This will bring up a dos windows with a C:\>prompt
    3.   Type PING IP_Address and hit ENTER (i.e.: PING 192.168.1.101)
    4.   If you see 4 replies with TIME= in them, you can see the Audia.
    5.   If you see Request Timed Out, that means you cannot see the Audia.
    6.   If you see Destination host unreachable, double check your IP address as there is probably a typo.
    7.   If you can PING the Audia, but still cannot connect using the Audia software, there is probably a firewall
         blocking you
    8.   If you can’t ping the Audia, double check all your IP addresses and make sure you are on the same
         network as the Audia
