Connecting to a Renaissance Receiver

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

Before students can practice or test in MathFacts in a Flash on NEO 2s, you must connect a Renaissance Receiver to your computer.

  1. Install the NEO Manager software on the computer 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. Select Renaissance Place Settings.
  11. Click OK when the program finishes updating the network settings. Make sure your students know the Receiver network name.
  12. Enter the web address or IP address for your Renaissance Place site. Select Verify to make sure the utility recognizes it as a valid address. Then, select OK.
