Manual Device Setup for FireTV

This article sets up your Fire TV device to use the Wi-Fi network of your home router, while streaming traffic is routed to the StreamLocator router so that the streaming relocation service is in effect.

Note that this set-up process is an advanced configuration of your local connection, so  some technical experience will be required. 

Step 1:

On your main router admin console, create an IP reservation for your Fire TV device - this is usually in the LAN settings or DHCP setting. **Important - when creating the IP reservation, write down the internal IP address of the Fire TV device.

Step 2:

Visit from any device, click your email at the top right and select Advanced Settings. Look for the Advanced Connection Options tab on the bottom and take note of the addresses for later.

Step 3:

Access the Fire TV network screen by going to Settings > Network

Step 4:

Choose your main Wi-Fi network and forget it by clicking the hamburger menu button on the remote and confirming with the select button (middle button).

Step 5:

Choose the same network, enter your password and click Advanced at the bottom. Do not click connect.

Step 6:

Under IP Address, enter the the Fire TV's internal IP address which we found when making the IP reservation in Step 1**.

Step 7:

Under Gateway, enter the StreamLocator Router's IP address

Step 8:

Under Network Prefix Length, enter 24.

Step 10:

Under DNS , enter the StreamLocator's DNS Server address.

Step 11:

Under DNS 2, leave blank and click connect/next on the bottom right.
