Re: Wireless Connection Keeps Dropping


Some generic solutions for WiFi dropping out may include:
1. Use of static IP addresses for the clients (in your case the 2 Sony VPL-CX86s) rather than auto obtain;
2. Disable the WEP/WPA security;
3. Set MAC filter in your router and include MAC addresses of the 2 projectors;
4. Try raising the height/position of the router; and/or
5. use an aftermarket high gain antenna for the router.

As a reminder, WiFi works by line of sight (LOS), anything in between will reduce signal strength/coverage and that include people around/near the projector unknowingly blocking the router.

Hope that this be of some help/idea. Pls post back how things turned out or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Will a standard b,g,n wireless usb adapter work on an NEC projector?

No. The projector isn't a computer. It can't download drivers and software to make 3rd party devices work.

Use a wireless bridge and connect to the projector's Ethernet port if it has one suitable for network display. Otherwise stick with a cable connection from a laptop

Why does my monitor lose its signal all the time?

Baby monitors are not the top of the food chain when it comes to reliability which is strange seeing what it is used for. There is something interfering with the wireless. See if you can track it to what device. Microwave with screw with this as well as something as small as a smart phone. The constant updating of aps to the phone is a real bugger. Wireless internet is another thing to look at. Seeing how radio waves are everywhere it is not a guarantee but try removing everything from between the monitor and your camera that would have radio frequency.

Sony VPL-DS100

I have solved this problem. Seems the rotating stand on the front bottom needed to be pushed and turned so that it inserts well inside. If it not well pushed the projector keeps shutting down itself every 10-15seconds. Took me about an hour to open the projector and doing all kinds of experiments to finally try that. :)

Infocus 250 projector won't power up

Urinate on the bulb. This sometimes lubricates the contraption that the bulb connects with and it usually comes on instantly.

You will need to have a dvi to vga converter. If you have a Macbook, it is a mini dvi to vga. You can get this adapter direct from Apple for about $20. A wireless connection is not available with this model projector.
