Silex sx-200 print servers loosing its wireless signal

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

My monitor says :"No signal" What is the problem?

To help you troubleshoot the monitor 'No Signal' issue, please find the steps given below:
- Turn off your computer.
- Unplug the cable running from your monitor to your PC and plug it back in, making sure the connection is firm. The most common cause of this error is a loose cable.
- Re-attach the cable running from your monitor to your PC. If the monitor is still not displaying a signal after firmly reattaching the cable, the problem could lie with the cable, especially if the cable has visible damage.
- Replace your monitor with another monitor if possible. If the 'No Signal' error still appears, the problem does not rest with the cables or the monitor, but with your PC.
- Open your PC case and locate your video card. Remove the card and then replace it firmly in its slot or, if possible, insert the video card into another slot on your motherboard. A video card that is not making a firm connection will not display images to the monitor. Close your PC case and test the monitor again.
- Replace your video card completely. Your video card may suffer from internal damage that is not allowing it to output a signal.
If issue persists, it is recommended to contact your monitor manufacturer for further assistance.

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 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!

Signifcant delay when printing

Your post does not mention all IP addresses in use, and which devices use wireless. That information would be helpful.

Is it possible that you are getting an IP address from a router for your internet access, then when you try to talk to your print server it may be trying to assign an ip address too.

(Sometimes a wired computer also has wireless enabled, which can cause an issue when one ip address has already been received on the wired connection and a wireless connection is also trying to connect.)

Connecting with DPR 1260

1) Signal strength to each computer might be poor (raise the DPR-1260 as high as you can afford or centralize it) 2) There are nearby wireless devices on the same channel (or adjacent channels) as yours. You might not see them, as they are neighbors or businesses, depending where the device is. 3) Wireless is very similar to Real Estate. It might be a shabby house but in the right location it's a sell. Location, Location, Location. (same as #2) 4)Make sure the device is NOT sitting on or at least 6 inches near any other electronic device, including radios, TV, cable modem, etc. As a quick fix, enter the DPR1260 configuration page and change the channel to either 1, 6 or 11, whichever gives you the best performance. Then come back here and let us know what you find. ZT3000 "Beta tester of "0"s and "1's"

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.
