  1. Connect up the included power cable to the 1F controller

  2. Connect up an ethernet cable with one end plugged into the 1F controller and the other connected to a laptop

  3. Turn on the power switch to the 1F controller and make sure the laptop is powered up to an available desktop view.

4a. You should be able to visually see lights on the ethernet port of the 1F controller and laptop at this point.
