Ethernet

An address based data packet network capable of high speeds (10/100/1,000Mbs) originally developed for the computer industry that is seeing adoption in the marine industry. Ethernet networks are designed as a star topology. Systems of three or more nodes require a hub, router or switch to facilitate all point to point connections.
FUSION-Link™ Ethernet supported Multi-Function Displays (MFD's) become the entertainment control centre for the entire vessel once connected to the FUSION 750 Series Marine Entertainment Systems.

FAQ

+ My FUSION-Link Compatible MFD Will Not Connect To My FUSION Stereo.

The first thing to check is that the FUSION Stereo is displaying a valid IP address on the 'about' screen. Select the settings menu then 'about' to confirm. If the display shows " IPNone " the router is either not a compatible DHCP product or is not configured correctly. If the IP address starts with the prefix 169, it is not valid, as this is a default address when the router is not sending a DHCP generated IP address or is configured incorrectly. Please review the Router's instruction manual or contact the manufacturer's website for technical help.
