Problem reconnecting WIFI (no ip adress)
Posted on 2014-09-25
I have a terrain on which a bulldozer rides to load material in trucks
In the bulldozer there’s a Windows 7 based touch panel
I have 2 access point PSION 9160 which cover most part of my terrain.
They both have same SSID, same static 64 bit WEP key and different wireless channel (7 and 13)
I use wireless mode 801.11b.
I often have a problem when the bulldozer rides to far from the access point, the touch panel loses his connection (which is normal, because he's out of range)
When he is back in the range of the Wi-Fi, is looks like the TCPIP connection is not active / rebuild (Wi-Fi is OK but I cannot ping the device
The only solution is to reboot the PC
