Connecting your Paca(rana) to a Wireless Network

There are several approaches:

  • Use an Ethernet cable to connect your Paca(rana) to the wireless router you already use in your studio
  • Connect your Paca(rana) to its own wireless router (for example the Asus WL330gE Portable Wireless Access Point)
  • Use Delora’s KymaConnect, your Mac’s built-in WiFi, and an Ethernet cable between your computer and the Paca(rana)

Troubleshooting the Network Connection

In order for the Paca(rana) and the iPad to find each other, they must be on the same network. Sometimes wireless routers use different addresses for wired and wireless connections and this would mean that the Paca(rana) and the iPad would be on different networks.

You can check the addresses by going to Settings on the iPad, choose Wi-Fi settings, tap the blue arrow next to your network name (to get more information) and read the IP Address and Subnet Mask.

Then, on the Paca(rana), you can tap Help on the front panel, and scroll all the way to the last entry where you will see the Paca(rana)’s IP Address and Subnet Mask.

The Paca(rana) and the iPad are on the same network (and therefore can find each other) if the Subnet Masks are the same, and if the first part of the IP Addresses of the iPad and the Paca(rana) match (depending on the Subnet Mask value). A Subnet Mask of 255.255.255.0 means that the first three components of the IP Addresses must match, a mask of 255.255.0.0 means that the first two components of the IP Address must match, etc.

For example, if the Subnet Mask is 255.255.255.0, then 192.168.1.2 and 192.168.1.3 are on the same network, but 192.168.1.2 and 192.168.10.2 are not on the same network.

If the IP Addresses show that the Paca(rana) and iPad are on different networks, alter the settings of your router to make the wireless and wired connections share the same range of IP addresses.
