Networking Your MusicPad Pro Tablet
With the standard software you can use an Ethernet adapter to network your MusicPad
Pro tablet. The USB-to-USB connection is also a point-to-point network although, at this
time, there is no way to configure IP addresses or use DHCP to set an IP address.
With the premium software upgrade, you can also use an 802.11b adapter to network your
MusicPad Pro tablet.

Bypassing the Available MusicPad Pro Tablet Selection List
There are two cases where you might not want to select a MusicPad Pro tablet from the
list offered when you open the File Manager on MusicPad Manager.
1 When you are attempting to connect to a MusicPad Pro tablet running a release prior
to version 4.0
2 When you only have one MusicPad Pro tablet and you never want to see the message.
To connect to a MusicPad Pro tablet running an old release:
On the main toolbar tap the Tools icon.
Tap MusicPad Manager Options....
Tap the Use USB Cable radio button if you are doing a USB-to-USB connection. Tap
Use Ethernet and set the IP address of the device if you are using an 802.11b
wireless adapter or an Ethernet adapter to connect to the tablet.
Tap OK to leave the Networking options dialog.
Note: Never plug more than one MusicPad Pro tablet into a computer’s USB ports. This
will cause many configuration problems..
