Channel

Your wireless access point must be fixed to a specific channel (i.e. auto channel scan should be disabled). That channel value must be entered in the EtherTrax unit.

WiFi Quality

Display value only. No configuration required.

WEP

This value determines the number of bytes to be authenticated in your WEP key. For example, enter 64 if you are using a 10 character hexadecimal code (5 bytes). Enter 128 if you are using a 26 character hexadecimal code (13 bytes).

By default, the WiFi module authenticates using a 'shared key' protocol. If your wireless access point is configured to authenticate using an 'open key' protocol, enter 'O' preceding your encryptions value (i.e. O64 if you are using a 64 bit Open WEP key).

WEP Key

Enter your hexadecimal WEP key. Your wireless access point key type is required to be set as hexadecimal. The WiFi module does not support ASCII WEP keys.


Operating Considerations:

  • When the WiFi enabled device has successfully connected to your wireless access point, the LED indicator on the WiFi module will stop flashing;

  • To reset and reconnect the device's WiFi connection to your wireless access point, unplug and re-plug the device;

  • WiFi operates only when with a dedicated power source and does not operate when the device is operating under battery power.
