Some Android flavors do not support Multicast DNS. This is required to access The Missing Link’s Web Control Panel via the URL http://MissingLink-xxxx.local/

If you are setting up The Missing Link while in its Access Point Mode

If your Missing Link is in Access Point Mode and your Android device is connected to the MissingLink-xxxx network, then the IP address 192.168.4.1 will connect to the Web Control Panel.

If you need to access your Missing Link after it is connected to your own WiFi network

Once The Missing Link is connected to your own WiFi network it will no longer have a known IP address. You will need to configure your WiFi router to give The Missing Link a dedicated IP address.

  1. Go to your WiFi router’s administration page
  2. Find the list of clients connected to your netowork
  3. Enter in a static IP address for The Missing Link

You can now bookmark that IP address in your web browser to access The Missing Link’s Web Control Panel.
