Connect the MAWi Player device to the screen with the HDMI cable provided.
Connect the device to the network either with a wired ethernet cable or over wifi.
Plug the power adapter to the mains and to the device and make sure the device boots up.
Connect a mouse to the USB port of the MAWi Player. It will help you with the initial setup steps.

Once the MAWi Player is connected to the network and a DHCP server is available, it will be automatically assigned an IP address.

Write down the IP address of the MAWi Player to identify it from the MAWi management console.
