Connection options with Mr Beam

There are three options to connect Mr Beam to your computer or tablet. Choosing the most appropriate option depends on your personal usage preference and the network available at the location Mr Beam is set up in. 

You can switch between the connection types at any time. If you have connected Mr Beam to your home Wi-Fi once, but then want to switch to a direct connection via Mr Beam Wi-Fi, you will need a network reset stick.

Option A: Direct connection via Mr Beam Wi-Fi

Connect your computer directly to the Wi-Fi Access Point of your Mr Beam. This is the easiest connection option. No internet access or network infrastructure is required.

Note: The Mr Beam sets up a WLAN access point. However, this is not the same as an Internet connection. The Wi-Fi connection is only used for communication between the computer and Mr Beam. For an active Internet connection on the computer and Mr Beam, you must use option B or option C.

Option B: Connection via network cable (Ethernet) and router
