Name the Renaissance Receiver

Before students can practise or test in MathsFacts in a Flash using NEO 2s or Renaissance Responders, you must name the Renaissance Receiver.

This is especially important if your school has more than one Receiver.

Use a unique name for each computer/Receiver combination. This helps students know they are connecting to the right Receiver.

Use the Renaissance Wireless Server Utility to name the Receiver. The Renaissance Wireless Server Utility is automatically installed with NEO Manager.

Make sure you have installed NEO Manager before you follow these steps.

  1. Start the Renaissance Wireless Server Utility:
    • Windows computers: Right-click in the lower-right corner of your computer screen (the system tray) and choose Manage from the menu that appears. If you do not see this icon in your system tray, select Start > Programs > Renaissance Wireless Server > Renaissance Wireless Server Utility.
    • Macintosh computers: In your computer's Applications folder, open the Renaissance Wireless Server folder. Then, double-click Renaissance Wireless Server Utility.
  2. Select Start, if necessary.
  3. Type 1234 and select OK to log in.
  4. This is the default Administrator PIN.

    If you have changed the PIN, enter your new PIN.

    1. Select the Server Settings tab.
    2. Select Set Administrator PIN.
    3. Enter the new pin.
    4. Enter the new PIN again, to confirm.
    5. Select OK.
  5. Select the Server Settings tab.
  6. If necessary, enter a new name in the Network Name field.
  7. The default network name is "Renaissance Receiver".

    Make sure the name you enter is different from the name of your school's other Receivers and easy for your students to recognise.

    Select Update Network Settings.

  8. Select OK when the program finishes updating the network settings.
