 In devices connected to the network, there is a technical feature called a network adapter that is responsible for the communications. In some devices, there are multiple network adapters. Each network adapter has its own network settings. For example, a router has a network adapter for an internet/​WAN connection that connects outward, and one or more network adapters communicate to the “intranet”/​local network. Laptops usually have their own network adapter for the cable connection and the wireless connection. In a traditional desktop, there is often only one network adapter that is used through the network cable. In devices connected to the network, there is a technical feature called a network adapter that is responsible for the communications.

      * When your computer is connected to the junction box directly through a cable, the local network adapter, instead of a possible wireless adapter, is responsible for the Kortex communications. That is why it is recommended to close down the possible wireless internet connection at least for testing the connection.      * When your computer is connected to the junction box directly through a cable, the local network adapter, instead of a possible wireless adapter, is responsible for the Kortex communications.
