Using the Adapter Utility

The Utility has two purposes. It allows your computer to communicate with the Adapter, so you can send music and pictures to the TV and stereo. The Utility also lets you easily designate folders that hold music and pictures for the Adapter.

To use the Adapter, the Utility must be running on your computer. If you close the Utility, then the Adapter will not work. If you need to re-start the Utility, click the Start button. Click All Programs and Linksys Wireless-B Media Adapter. Click Adapter Utility to restart the Utility.

There are two ways to access the Utility, through your PC's System Tray or Start Menu.

Using the Utility's Icon in Your PC's System Tray

To access the Utility, right-click its icon in your PC's system tray, which is located on the right side of the taskbar.
