Self Installation Overview Self-installation is recommended for one access point WiFi network For proper set up of a WiFi network, the merchant must have the following: –Broadband Access either obtained through telephone or cable service provider –DSL / Cable Modem for broadband access
Self Installation – Getting Started Always refer to Installation Guides provided with each component for additional details Every WiFi Self Install solution comes pre-provisioned (SSID, WPA enablement, WPA Passphrase, and network channel are preloaded) Your organization will be provided the initial settings for the network. These settings were modified from the manufacturer defaults to ensure card association compliance right out of the box. Your organization will be responsible for any changes to the settings in the future and their compliance with card association standards for security.
Self Installation – Step 1 1.Connect the RJ-45/Cat 5 cable from DSL or cable modem uplink to modem port on the Motorola Access Point Modem Uplink
Self Installation – Step 2 2.Plug in the power supply for the Access Point and turn switch to on DC Power Modem Uplink
Self Installation Step 3 3.Power up a V x 670 WiFi device and complete the Site Coverage Exercise described later in this presentation DC Power Modem Uplink V x 670
Self Installation Step 4 4.If V x 570 is to be used in a CounterPAY setting, run additional RJ- 45/Cat 5 cable from the Ethernet port on the Access Point to the location of the V x 570 DC Power Modem Uplink V x 570 V x 670
Installation – Best Practices In ideal conditions, WiFi range is up to 100 feet from the Access Point in every direction Interference can degrade the quality of the signal Potential causes of interference include cordless phones, microwaves, Bluetooth devices, walls, and metal doors Ways to minimize interference –Place Access Point in area away from potential sources of interference –Position Access Point in central location of desired coverage –Avoid placing the Access Point next to an outside wall –Use a cordless phone operating either on the 900M Hz or 5 GHz ranges
Installation Recommendations Choose a central location away from potential sources of interference High elevation is preferred Examples: Mounting bracket on a wall or on a ceiling Complete the site coverage exercise (from the next slide)
Site Coverage Exercise Power up the V x 670 WiFi terminal At Application Main Menu screen, press 1 At CommServer Main Menu, you will find the signal strength and an Information Key Note: CommServer is the communication software resident in the V x devices which provides diagnostic and troubleshooting guides Press the purple key under the Information Icon and scroll down until you see the Signal Quality indicator.
