Connect one end of an Ethernet cable to the RJ45 connector jack on the back of the Sonicorbiter SE. Connect the other end of the Ethernet cable to a router that has access to the internet. If you do not have an Ethernet connection in your audio room a local electrician can install one for you for a reasonable price. As a last resort, you can get a Home Plug Ethernet adapter that uses your home's power wires to extend your network. This a good Home Plug Ethernet adapter.
Connect your 5v DC power supply to the Sonicorbiter SE. The DC power connector accepts a 5.5mm x 2.1mm jack.
Do not use more than 5v or you will damage your Sonicorbiter SE
