»View Product Info

You can connect the NI myRIO to a host computer by using one of the following two options:

  • USB connection—Connect the NI myRIO to a host computer with a USB cable. The LabVIEW for myRIO Module installs a USB driver on the host computer. When you connect the NI myRIO to the host computer, the USB driver creates a virtual network interface card and assigns an IP address to the NI myRIO in the format of 172.22.11.x.
  • WiFi connection—Connect the NI myRIO to a host computer over a wireless network. After you connect the NI myRIO to a wireless network, you can wirelessly detect the NI myRIO target, deploy applications, and use shared variables to send data back and forth between the target and the host computer. You must first connect the NI myRIO over USB in order to configure WiFi settings on the NI myRIO. Use NI Web-based Configuration & Monitoring to configure WiFi settings. To learn about configuring WiFi on the NI myRIO, click the Set Up and Explore link on the Getting Started window in LabVIEW and select Configure WiFi.
