Connecting a Renaissance Receiver to Your Computer and Naming the Renaissance Receiver (Wireless Network)

Renaissance Responders and NEO 2 will no longer be supported after future software updates.

If you would like your students to complete paper assignments using Renaissance Responders or NEO 2, you must first connect a Renaissance Receiver to the teacher's computer and install the Renaissance Responder software on that computer.

To connect a Renaissance Receiver to your computer, follow these steps:

  1. Install the Renaissance Responder software so that the Renaissance Wireless Server utility is installed on your computer.
  2. Make sure you are logged in to your computer as an administrator or that you have administrator privileges so that the device drivers load properly.
  3. Plug the square end of the data cable into the back of the Renaissance Receiver.
  4. Connect the flat USB connector on the data cable to a matching port on your computer.
  5. Now, start the Renaissance Wireless Server Utility on the connected computer. On most Windows computers, you will find it in the Start menu; in Windows 8, you will find it in the list of applications. On Macintosh computers, you will find it in the Applications folder.
  6. To log in, type 1234, then click OK. (This is the default Administrator PIN. If you have changed the PIN, enter your new PIN.)
  7. Click the Server Settings tab.
  8. Enter a new name in the Network Name field. Make sure the name is different from the name of your school's other Receivers.
  9. Click Update Network Settings.
  10. Click OK when the program finishes updating the network settings. Make sure your students know the Receiver network name.
