      4. Check that SpeedlinkNNNN is NOT VISIBLE

General Notes
  • The link between gates and Speedlink is not WIFI. Speedlight gates uses a Zigbee protocol
  • The Dlink provides a common access point for iPad and Speedlink using WIFI
  • It is worth noting that Zigbee has a great range than WIFI , as such always keep the iPad within 20m or so of the Dlink AP.
  • Ensure all antennas point up, and make sure you are using our latest hi-gain antennas fro optimal performance
  • DO NOT put the Speedlink on the ground. Make sure it is at least 40cm off the ground, with antenna pointing up
  • DO NOT put the speedlink any closer than 30cm to the Dlink
