Default Apex network connection

So got myself an apex controller and just as I expected, its a total nightmare trying to figure this thing out. I really don't know anything about networking or ip addresses and all that bs. But if someone can walk me through how to connect this thing to my computer or point me in the right direction it would be appreciated. Quite a little headache maker this thing is.

Have you tried using Fusion? You don't need to know any of that stuff.

You need to better describe where you're at and what you're trying to do. Can you connect to it on your local network? Out of the box, it should be at 192.168.1.50, username admin, PW 1234

You on Shaw or Telus?

Its absolutely the best controller I have ever used but agreed its another thing to hook it all up....
Reading over some of the instructions many times helped me some but the help from other aquarists got me through it. It actually seems pretty simple once they explain it. Well some of it anyways.

One of the great things about Canreef.
