How do I connect my RX-N600 to a DHCP Network?

Last Update: 11/13/2010

Connect your Yamaha receiver to your home network:
1. Connect the receiver to your router’s LAN port using a CAT 5 network cable.

Connect your Yamaha receiver to your TV Monitor:
1. Connect one of the Monitor Out jacks of the receiver to your TV Monitor.
2. Verify that your monitor is set to the correct input.

Verify the settings on the Yamaha receiver:
1. Set the Yamaha remote to AMP using the selector switch on the right side of the remote.
2. Press the Set Menu button on the Yamaha remote.
3. Arrow down to Manual Setup and press Enter.
4. Arrow down to Net/USB and press Enter.
5. In the NET/USB menu select Network.
6. Verify that the DHCP setting is set to ON. **Note: When DHCP is set to ON the IP Address, Subnet Mask, Default Gateway, DNS (P), and DNS(S) will populate automatically.
7. Arrow down and select Set.
8. This will exit out of Network.
9. Select the Network menu again and verify the receiver has picked up an IP Address, Subnet Mask, and Default Gateway. Also verify that it matches the network IP address scheme of the home network.
10. Press the Set Menu button to exit.
Troubleshooting:
Here are some troubleshooting steps you can follow if the Yamaha receiver is unable to obtain an IP address in your home network:
1. Verify cables are connected properly using standard CAT5 cables. (Not a crossover cable)
2. Verify that the connection on the Router is a LAN port and the activity light is active/flashing.
3. Verify the router is set up to be the DHCP Server in your home network.
4. Verify that another network device (such as a computer) works on the same cable/connection.
NOTE: If the receiver is getting a “Connect Error” when trying to access the Internet radio, that means there is a problem with the network signal from the receiver to the network connection.
