1. The Media Link cannot find the Media Server on the network. What should I do?

Make sure the colored-coded RCA audio cable is securely connected to the Media Link's 2CH Output ports and the right speaker's INPUT ports. Then make sure the RCA speaker cable linking the two speakers is secure.
3. When I listen to music, I hear too much bass/midrange/treble. How can I make adjustments?
Adjust the equalizer (EQ) settings. The Media Link offers six preset EQ settings. Select the one that best suits your musical sensibility.
4. The Media Link's LCD screen is displaying the Wired Network icon, but I want to use the Media Link on my wireless network.
Unplug the Ethernet network cable from the Media Link's Ethernet port. On the LCD screen, scroll down to Network Setup, and select it. Then select Change to wireless and press the right arrow button. The Media Link will restart itself and operate in its wireless mode.

You have two ways to set your favorite radio stations:
i. Using the Media Link's LCD screen, scroll down to Internet Radio. Select the radio station you would like to set as your favorite. Press the Select button on the remote, and select Add to Favorites. Then press the Select button again.
ii. If you already know the URL for the station you would like to play, access the Media Link's Web-based Utility. Click the Favorites tab. Enter the station's name and URL.

The Media Link currently supports only Internet radio stations that broadcast via MP3 streaming. The Media Link will not play stations that broadcast via Windows Media Audio or Real Audio.

Yes. You can install the Media Server software on multiple computers; however, the Media Link can only connect to one Media Server at a time. You can switch to a different Media Server using the LCD screen. Scroll down to Media Server, and press the right arrow button. Then select the Media Server you want to use.
8. Can I use the digital output to play music streamed from the Rhapsody service?
No. Music streamed from Rhapsody will not play from the digital output. In its music stream, Rhapsody embeds Digital Content Management information that the Media Link cannot interpret.
9. I have my own speakers. Can I use them with the Media Link?
Yes, if they are powered speakers. The Media Link's RCA outputs are pre-amp outputs, so they have to be connected to an amplified source. The Media Link will not work with non-powered speakers.
10. What is the IEEE 802.11b standard?
It is one of the IEEE standards for wireless networks. The 802.11b standard allows wireless networking hardware from different manufacturers to communicate, provided that the hardware complies with the 802.11b standard.
