Configuring the Computer to Instrument Connections
This section details two methods of connecting Mobile InterferenceHunter software to an Anritsu handheld instrument Ethernet port. These procedures do not apply to the MS2760A series Ultraportable instruments. For detailed instructions to configure your instrument, please review the user guide specific to your instrument. Refer to Connecting MIH to the Spectrum Analyzer and to Setting Up the Spectrum Analyzer to complete the setup. The procedures below are examples. Other configurations are possible depending on your needs and available resources.
Connecting via an Ethernet Crossover Cable
1. Connect the laptop to the instrument Ethernet port with a crossover cable.
2. Set the host PC to a static IP address as follows:
a. Click Start Menu > Control Panel > Network and Sharing Center...
b. Click Change adapter settings.
c. Right-click on Local Area Connection and click on Properties.
d. Select Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4), click Properties, and then set the following:
IP Address = 10.0.0.1
Default Gateway Address = 10.0.0.0
Subnet Mask = 255.255.255.0
3. Set the Anritsu handheld instrument Ethernet settings as follows:
a. Open the System menu via Shift System (8).
b. Select the System Options menu.
c. Select Ethernet Config and set the following:
IP Address = 10.0.0.2
Default Gateway Address = 10.0.0.0
Subnet Mask = 255.255.255.0
4. Open a browser on the computer and enter the URL address 10.0.0.2 to access the handheld instrument web interface.
Connecting via the TP Link TL-WR802N Wireless Router
Your router comes factory configured to work with Anritsu instruments. If you use a Wi-Fi link, a band pass filter on the input to the spectrum analyzer may help with weak signals.
1. Set the Anritsu handheld instrument Ethernet settings as follows:
IP Address = 192.168.0.50
Default Gateway Address = 0.0.0.0
Subnet Mask = 255.255.255.0
2. Connect both the Ethernet and USB ports between the router and instrument.
3. Connect the laptop to the router via Wi-Fi (generally using the icons in the lower right system tray) using the SSID and password that are printed on the router label. These codes are unique for each router. For example:
SSID = TP-LINK_39DE
Password = 02850450
4. Open a browser on the computer and enter the URL address 192.168.0.50 to access the handheld instrument web interface.
Below is a procedure to recover the TP Link factory configuration.
1. Connect the laptop to the router via Wi-Fi as described in Step 3 of the previous procedure.
2. Open a web browser and enter the URL address tplinkwifi.net (192.168.0.1 or 192.168.0.254 are router default IP addresses, which will be changed later in the procedure).
3. Log in to the router using the defaults:
username: admin
password: admin
4. Click Quick Setup.
5. Set the Router as an Access Point and click Next until the Quick Setup is done.
6. Review the settings and then reboot the router using the on-screen Reboot button, then connect as described in the previous procedure.
Connecting MIH to the Spectrum Analyzer
In MIH under the Settings menu, select Spectrum Analyzer Connection to set up the Ethernet connection with the instrument. Note that the instrument must be set to Spectrum Analyzer and Channel Power mode.
Spectrum Analyzer Connection
1. Enter the IP address of the instrument or the Wi-Fi router if setting up a Wi-Fi connection.
Note 
If you are connecting to an MS2760A, the IP address is 127.0.0.1.
MIH Connection Setup Dialog
2. Press Test Connection to confirm connectivity. Once the Ethernet connection is complete and verified, you can begin taking measurements.
