Question about Symbol AP-2411-5AZL-01 Network Adapter

1 Answer

Timing out I have two Spectrum 24 AP-2411 access points in my warehouse that talk to Symbol RF bar code readers models 3840s and 6840s. I use the pre-802.11 'spring' protocol and this set up has worked very well for years. Since Febuary 2007 I have been having 'timed out' issues on the warehouse floor. After logging into the reader the user does their job and places the reader down. After a small time frame, 5 minuets or so, the user goes to the reader again and the unit will not connect to the 2411 access point. The unit will time out and the two ways to reconnect are to, 1.) reboot the unit (reader) or 2.) wait an undetermined amount of time. (20 min.+, the readers will connect eventually, but most of the time the just log off) I use a static IP address in all my bar code readers and the two access points. I have timed the response from reader to access point and have seen the time to live go over 2000ms. I have been trying to swap different access points in (I have back ups and another warehouse where this problem is not happening) but nothing has worked yet. Again the problem is when a reader goes idle. If the gun is logged off it will connect with no problem. The problem has even happened while the user was in the middle of a transaction. For no good reason, the reader will lose connection with the access point, but this is very rare. If anyone has ever dealt with trouble like this I could sure use a helping word. Thank you, Brian Silcock

Re: Timing out

Hi, the units I dealt with were in a restaurant environment to their loading dock. Somewhat similar situation. During the day it would cut out whenever, or not connect at all between 11 and 2. After a LOT of investigation, came to find they installed a new microwave in the kitchen area. When they were using this unit the signal for the wireless was being interfered with and it was really busy between 11 and 2. The solution was to move the microwave. Have you installed ANYTHING new? microwave, radio, phones, intercoms, TV?Did a neighbor put something in?to test just unplug and see what signals you get. And just to let you know, when you start your unit, you get a fully function connection, when it sits idle sometimes it will drop to half duplex. Didn't figure that part out.

Wifi extenders

Your computer can't join to a extender only, as ithe extender just repeats the data from the original access point(AP). If the repeater is not acknowledged by the original AP, then you will never really be on the wireless network. Start by logging into the original AP and verifying it can see the extender.

Wireless access point login help???

Well you may have to disable the Modem... temporarily. While you want to access the Access Point. Also you probably are going to want to get a browser like Firefox or Opera, anything but what you use now, install it as a stand alone program in the root of C:\ drive, DON'T import any settings etc. Use that browser to when you access the AP.

No connection.

You are trying to establish a point-to-point link between two buildings. You need one access point and one bridge. Technically, it doesn't matter which one you put at which end. Traditionally, you put the AP where the network connection is, because it makes adding future remote locations easier.
500 yards should be a cakewalk for this model.

Hi, assuming you are running WinXP, you might want to try: 1) right click on your wireless networking icon and click repair; or 2) double click on the same icon; click on properties, scroll down to/click TCP/IP to highlight, click on properties - Tick Obtain an IP address automatically if your access point is also acting as DHCP server; or 3) get IP add + others from your Network Admin and entered numbers given; or 4) self-assign IP numbers that are pretty near your Access Point (AP) IP #s, maybe something like where your AP is, subnet mask should be the same as your AP (normally but may be different) and your default gateway normally would be the IP Add of your AP ( or whatever the AP is using) DNS could be obtained from your ISP or tick obtain automatically. Caution here that the IP number you select should not be currently in use in your network. 5) Open IE, go to tools/internet option/connection, remove any dial-up if no longer needed and check never dial a connection (assuming you don’t use a modem and would connect normally via wireless. Go to/Click LAN settings, check auto detect settings, make sure Proxy server is uncheck. 6) Ping any website from your command prompt to see if you get a response If all else fail, pls post your AP hardware (brand/model), OS. It might also be a good idea to check if your AP is connected to an ISP with an active account and that your modem is working ok. Please let me know if this works out ok for you. Cheers.
