Initially, the iTach WiFi is an unsecured adhoc device that is discoverable with any wireless Windows laptop.
- After applying power, view the available wireless networks and select iTachMACID. The MAC ID is printed on the bottom label. For example, if the MAC ID is 000C1E01B45C, the wireless network name will be iTach000C1E01B45C
- Once the connection is established, open a browser and enter IP address http://169.254.1.70 and select the iTach Network page. If prompted for a password, select OK. Change the Network Type to Infrastructure and enter the SSID, Security Type, and Passphase to agree with your router settings. The router and iTach entries need to be identical. Enable DHCP if you are not entering a static IP address, and select Apply to permanently store the settings
- The iTach requires 30 seconds to connect to a network whenever a new security setting has been entered. Note, the iTach power LED will blink once per second after it is connected to the infrastructure network
- To determine the iTach IP address if required, download the Global Cache iHelp application from www.globalcache.com/downloads and run it on a Windows PC connected to the infrastructure network. iHelp listens for iTach multicast beacons and displays every iTach MAC ID and IP address within one minute
