Time Machines other than the Club Lite have DHCP.
For users of Club Lite systems please refer to Getting Started – Step 3: Configure the Network Settings on your Timing Computers. Alternatively do a google search or follow this Link
For Readers that have DHCP your local area connection needs to be set to “Obtain a IP address automatically” . Alternatively you can hard code a IP Address to your PC as above.
A standard CAT-5 network cable (standard cable, not a crossover) is used to connect your computer to the TM Reader.
When Connecting to multiple readers via a wireless router or router with DHCP capabilities , make sure that the DHCP pools assigned by router does not overlap with the readers connected. If repeaters are required for a wireless network, these must be standalone units. Do not attempt to use the repeater mode in the Reader (this must always be set to 3G router mode).
