How To Assign a Static IP For An Ambie Player

Modified on Sun, 07 May 2023 at 02:39 AM

The Ambie players are sent out able to connect over ethernet and Wifi, a static IP configuration is not mandatory. However, the network requirements should be met.


In order to assign a Static IP for an Ambie Player, you need the following:


  1. Any device that can connect to a wireless internet, for example a laptop/tablet/smartphone.
  2. Google Chrome installed on the above device.
  3. The Static IP details: IP Address, Subnet, Gateway and Preferred DNS.


Step 1:


Ensure the Ambie Player is connected to a power source. To do this, please use the power supply provided in the Ambie package. Plug the one end into the Ambie Player, and plug the other end into a power socket.


Do not connect an Ethernet cable into the player.


Step 2:


Wait around 30 seconds from connecting the player to the power socket, then search for available wireless networks on the device you're using to set up the player on Wifi (laptop/tablet/smartphone).


You will see a network called "Ambie-Bridge-11XXX"


Then, connect to this network using the DEVICE CODE from the Ambie Player. The DEVICE CODE is an eight letter code. You can find this on the white sticker on the underside of the Ambie Player.


Step 3:


Once you're successfully connected the laptop/computer/smartphone to the Ambie-Bridge-11XXX network, open Google Chrome on any device.


In the address bar of the browser, type in 172.24.1.1, then press ENTER.


Step 4:


You should now have reached a page that looks like this:



Enter your DEVICE CODE and click ‘CONNECT’.


Step 5:


You will now land on a page with two tabs: Ethernet and WiFi. 


Make sure ETHERNET is selected and you’ll see a dropdown saying “Use DHCP”. See image:



Select “NO” from the DHCP dropdown


You will now be promoted to enter your Static IP details. Please enter all details and then click “Save Configuration”. A reconfirm box will popup and click “Save Configuration” again. 


Once you have completed the steps, the screen will say ‘Complete’. 



Finally, please unplug your player, wait a few seconds and then reconnect it to power.
