Silex sx-200 loosing wireless signal intermittantly

We are having issues with 4 silex sx-200 print servers loosing its wireless signal no matter what location we are at.
this ends up causing problems with docs being left in the queue.
the printer and print server are approx 40 feet away from each other.
when I have the printer and print server approx 6 ft from each other I get a signal strength anywhere from 27% to 87%.
Is there a known issue with these print servers and its signal strength?
if there is , is there a fix? does it need a firmware upgrade?
your help would be appreciated

System error found

Hope this will help someone else:
InWindows' Device Manager (devmgmt.msc), the SXUPTP driver was showing as disabled.Windows gave a warning that the device was known to have stability issues. Ifound out that SXUPTP is a driver from a company called Silex. Silex makesnetwork USB hubs, so I assume that the Belkin hub is a rebranded Silex hub.

In order to update the Silex driver follow these steps:
1. Close the Belkin network hub's tray application.
2. Download the latest version of SX Virtual Link(
3. Extract all of the files.
4. In Windows Explorer, navigate to sx-virtual_link_win_3120\s-33a3120\Files\Bin\Sxcsapi\WinVistaX64if you are running a 64 bit OS, orsx-virtual_link_win_3120\s-33a3120\Files\Bin\Sxcsapi\WinVista if you arerunning a 32 bit OS.
5. Right-click on "Sxuptp.inf" and select "Install" fromthe menu.

The driver will be installed and the warning icon in the device manager shoulddisappear. You may need to reboot for the changes to take effect.

6T04 Adapter failure

That 6to4 adapter has been a problem for as long as I have been aware of it but I only have that issue when I use my print server. I don't believe the 6to4 is your actual wireless. Are you using a wireless print server?

I want to connect the print server ESI9132079.i need drivers for this print server.


Download and read the manual of this print server.

You only need the actual printer drivers not the print server driver (there is no such thing for print server drivers). Once you connect to network and to Print server, you should be able to see what brand printer is connected to server such as HP, Epson, Fujixerox, Samsung, etc.

Hope this helps

I can not print

I had a similar problem that was caused by my firewall. I was able to get it to print fine but could not get it to scan.

To test, try temporarily disabling your firewall. Bringing up SX Virtual Link then search for devices. If you can find your Canon, that's the key. Silex has instructions on how to get around some of the firewalls on their web site. I had to figure out how to get around AVGs firewall on my own. Check out

Reply to this message if it doesn't work or if you need instructions for the firewall problem.

Good luck helena!

Problem with Canon I-SENSYS MF 4150

After several days of researching the same problem for the MF4150, the conclusion is that you have to use an Axis or Silex brand print server developed specifically for Canon. Both have been reported to provide Print/Scan/Fax multi-functionality, but it seems Silex is the one Canon really supports (it's only sold on their website) and is most likely to be the least problematic.
