Applicable Products and Categories of This Article

Setting up the IP address and proxy server settings of the Internet video device depends on the design or settings of the router. If the router has not automatically assigned an IP address to the Internet video device, manually set the IP address by following the steps below.

IMPORTANT: For certain models, it may not be possible to manually set the IP address when using the wireless connection option.

  1. Obtain the following IP information  from your computer.
    • IP address or IPv4 address
    • Subnet Mask
    • Default Gateway
    • Primary DNS or DNS server
    • Secondary DNS

      NOTE: If you are already connected to the internet, the IP information can also be obtained from the network connection status of the device.
  2. Using the remote supplied with your Internet video device, press the Home or Menu button.
  3. Select Setup or Settings.
  4. Select Network.
  5. Select Network Setup.
  6. Depending on how the device is connected to the Internet, select either Wired or Wireless.
  7. Select Manual or Custom.

    NOTE: For secured wireless setup, a Network security key needs to be entered before the IP address and Proxy server setting screen is displayed.

  8. Enter the IP information for the Internet video device obtained on Step 1.
    • IP address: The IP address should be the same, except for the last number in the four-number sequence. Change the last number to a number higher than the original but less than 254. For example, if the IP address shown on your computer is 192.168.0.5, enter 192.168.0.105
    • Subnet Mask: Enter the Subnet mask exactly as attained from the computer.
    • Default Gateway: Enter the Default Gateway exactly as attained from the computer.
    • Primary DNS: Enter the Primary DNS or DNS server shown on the computer or copy the Default gateway if one is not provided.
    • Secondary DNS: Enter the secondary DNS shown on the computer or leave the information to sequence of zeroes. (0.0.0.0)

      NOTE: Sony® Internet Video devices do not use a proxy server. Select NO if prompted to use a proxy server.
