    I believe I accidentally changed the IP address of one of my Booms.....

    ......in trying to set it up after being disconnected due to issues with my system.

    How do I recover it?

    I have several units, Booms, Duets and Radios, all connected to the same network.

    Is the IP Subnet the same for all units? How about the IP Gateway? And I assume the DNS Server IP is the same for all?

    Thank you for indulging my ignorance.

    You should be able to go through network setup in your Boom and either set it to use DHCP (automatic IP from your router) or assign manual IP.
    If you do manual IP, you'll enter something like

    IP ADDRESS: 192.168.001.027
    (where the 1.27 could be anything on your network that is available. Some routers use 192.168.1.xxx and some use 192.168.0.xxx among other possibilities. address is actually 192.168.1.27, but I recall that entering into my BOOM required me to enter 3 digits for each section, thus the extra zeros I added above).
    SUBNET MASK: 255.255.255.0
    GATEWAY: 192.168.001.001
    (this is the IP address of your router)
    DNS: 192.168.001.001
    (address of router)
    or
    8.8.8.8
    (google DNS)
    or
    8.8.4.4
    (google DNS)

    In your network, only the IP address will differ between items. Subnet mask, gateway, and DNS will be the same for everything on your network.
