Just wanted to note that I forwarded this post to our contact at Converse Digital.
This is his very informative and helpful reply:
The IP information is delivered from the DAC to the mconnect Control app.
mControl app just shows the information received from the DAC. The IP status is either DHCP or Static.
For your information, in DHCP mode, the IP address is allocated automatically by the router to the DAC.
And in Static mode, a user set the IP address manually.
Using DHCP is typical to avoid collision of IP address.
At mconnect Control’s Device Setup screen, you will see the Gear icon at right side of LAN IP address.
By touching the icon, you will see the LAN Setup status of the device.
If the DAC is in DHCP mode, the screen is seen as attached DHCP.jpg file.
If the DAC is in Static mode, the screen is seen as attached StaticIP.jpg file.
As you can see, if the DAC is in Static mode, the IP address settings should be seen in the screen.
If you want to switch between DHCP and Static, touch the DHCP or Static button at the screen.
Current mode is DHCP, and change to Static: You need to type in the IP address and other numbers in the screen.
Current mode is Static, and change to DHCP: Just touch DHCP and Apply. That’s all.
In both cases, the mconnect module in the DAC will reboot.
