- Radio interference in the location you were testing (Have you tested here before?) (we will discuss a fix for this later)
- Positioning of the Speedlink itself (especially important if there is radio noise about)
- should be in an elevated position (on top of the Swift Carry case is normally OK)
- Antenna should be pointing up (as should antennas on gates)
- Turn on Access point and Speedlink as normal.
- On setup and connection page, take note of the channel number beside the little Speedlink icon in top left hand corner.
- Don’t worry about selecting a test at this stage
- Turn one gate on only (have it 30m away).
- If it times and turns off out without connecting (20 secs) …………LEAVE IT TURNED OFF
- Go to User home/options and change to a diff channel. You will find this by scrolling the page up. ( in theory 15, and 20 should be the quietest so you might try these first)
- Turn your gate on and see if it connects. If it does you have found a better channel. Congratulations…..you are done!
- If not, go to Step 6 and repeat as required
*NB: Channel can not be changed if you are connected to a gate. You will get an error warning if you try and change channels
**NB: A good check to do if you have connectivity problems is via the User Home>Utilities>Hardware Testing>Quick Test. This test should be done once you have gates connected. Any abnormal response times from gates will be evident in the resulting log-file, that can be emailed to Swift for trouble shooting
