IF your reader model has an “X” after the name (i.e Club-XR or Pro-XWR) then the reader has extended router functions with DHCP (dynamic host configuration protocol) and WIFI.
The reader can assign an IP address to your timing computer if your computer’s wireless network adapter is set to “Obtain An IP Address Automatically”. If you cannot connect to the reader then your computer’s network setting is not set to this setting. You can find out how to configure the computer’s network settings to automatically connect under topic LINK.
These indicate status of the internal networking & router as follows:
- LAN Lit when a computer is connected to the Ethernet port, flashes during port activity
- RDR/WAN Lit when the reader has connected to the internal router, flashes during port activity
- WiFi 802.11 WiFi network is enabled, flashes during port activity
Your Trident reader has an internal WiFi network adapter and allows you to connect your timing computer to the reader over an 802.11b/g/n wireless network.
The wireless network name on the reader is customised for each customer prior to shipping and password is 12345678. Please refer Streaming Live Data from the Reader Via WiFi if you wish to change your wireless network name and password, as well as advanced features of wireless networking.
