Rumble Studio 40/Stage 800’s WiFi connectivity delivers easy wireless network access, enabling users to get the latest Rumble Studio 40/Stage 800 firmware updates (see page 61). To get started, press the MENU utility button and use the ENCODER to scroll to “WIFI,” then press the ENCODER to access WiFi settings.
The default WiFi setting is “off,” indicated by a red box labeled “WIFI OFF.” Press the ENCODER again to turn WiFi on, indicated by a green box labeled “WIFI ON.”When WiFi is on, use the ENCODER to scroll through available networks; select a network by pressing the ENCODER on it. If a known network is not displayed, it can be entered manually by selecting the “ADD HIDDEN NETWORK” option at the end of the list of available networks and using the ENCODER to enter the characters using the process described on page 11. Once a network is chosen, select “CONNECT” from the menu shown by pressing the ENCODER on it (other options in this menu are covered on page 40).
After choosing “CONNECT,” the amp will then prompt the entry of a password. To spell out a password, press the ENCODER once to activate the cursor and turn it to choose a character. Press ENCODER again to enter that character and move to the next; repeat until password is complete. When password is complete, press the top LAYER button (corresponding with onscreen prompt “done”). Successful network connection is indicated by a green dot to the left of the network name. All steps are illustrated below and on the following page.
Note that pressing the PRESET LAYER and CONTROLS LAYER buttons also enable closing out of some menus (indicated by an “x”) or returning to the previous step (indicated by the label “back”).
