View and configure how the Q-SYS Core connects to the network. Click Edit to change these settings.

CAUTION: A Gateway (also known as the Default Gateway) is used to route network data to devices outside of the local subnets configured on the Q-SYS Core's LAN adapters. You should only configure the Q-SYS Core with a single Gateway, either through Static or Auto (DHCP) addressing. Configuring a Gateway on more than one LAN adapter causes negative and unpredictable behavior. If you need to communicate with multiple remote networks, use one Gateway and then Static Routes for all other LAN adapters.



Select how each of the Core's LAN adapters connects to your network. Depending on your Core model, only a subset of the LAN adapters may be available – for example, your Core model may not have 'AUX LAN'. For each LAN adapter, its MAC Address and connected Link Speed (for example, "1000 Mbps") are indicated.


When the LAN Mode is set to 'Auto', the DNS section shows the read-only DNS Servers and Search Domains that the Core has been assigned by the DHCP server. If there are additional DNS servers you wish to use, or if the LAN Mode is set to 'Static', you can optionally add up to 16 DNS Servers and Search Domains. Click Edit to modify the DNS configuration.

A DNS server entry is required if:

Tip: DNS servers and search domains are available from the site IT administrator, or you can use public DNS servers such as those provided by Google ( and

  4. Click Test Connection.
