  • Open your DeviceInstaller application by clicking "Start->Programs->Lantronix->DeviceInstaller->DeviceInstaller"
  • When the DeviceInstaller GUI opens up, the first task it performs is to look for any Lantronix devices attached to the local area network.  You will see that, when devices are found, the left pane of the DeviceInstaller GUI will indicate so by displaying information below "Local Area Connection" which is your own local PC. You must then expand the tree of elements until you reach the lowest level, which represents the IP address of your actual device.  When you do so, three tabbed panels will appear in the right-most pane as in Figure 2.  Please select the pane labeled "Web Configuration".
  • The IP Address of the switch will appear at the top of the panel, along with a green 'GO' button.  To launch the QuickSwitch® 6212 GUI, simply click the 'GO' button.
