Getting Started Guide

Setting up WiFi

If you have purchased a Wireless (WiFi) capable terminal, then you will be able to configure the WiFi settings. 

  • By default the Easy Clocking terminals are not WiFi capable, unless you requested it when you purchased the terminal. 
  • You can check the box your terminal came in, and you will find a small tick box with the word WiFi beside it. If this is ticked then it should be a Wireless terminal.
    Unless someone at has simply used a marker to tick the box manually, this does not turn the unit into a wireless device.
  • Please note that our terminals connect to Wireless 2.4GHz (IEEE 802.11bg) Routers. The Terminals do not connect to NextG / 3G / 4G Wireless broadband or dongles. Those devices are not designed the same as a wireless router.

 

To configure the wireless settings on the terminal see the below instructions.

 

At the terminal: 

1.   This icon will show you when you’re connected to your wireless network. In the diagram it shows after we have connected with green bars for signal strength. Until you are connected it will show with a red cross beside it, meaning it needs you to configure your wireless settings.

 

2.   This option is only designed to show that the terminal is 'ONLINE' with the software (Cloud & WDV). This will show as online once it is configured and communicating with the software. Thus you can have a connection on your wireless network, but showing ‘OFFLINE’ on the terminal until you have registered it in the software. 

 

3.   Press the 'Menu' button to access the terminal menu so we can enter the settings.

 

You will now see the 'Main Menu' as per below.

1.   Use the arrow keys to navigate to 'Settings' and then the 'OK' button to select settings. Or press number 2 on the keypad.

 

 

Once you are in the 'Settings' menu you will see an option called 'Set IP'

 

Use the arrow keys to move to 'Set IP' and press 'OK' to select it.

You can now also see the options available for setting an IP address of the terminal.

You do not have to manually enter one as you can let the terminal collect its IP address from DHCP once it is connected to your wireless router.

If your IT require it to have a fixed IP address then you can Click Here to find out about entering an IP address.

Once you press 'OK' you will see the following screen.

  • Use the arrow keys to navigate to 'Wifi'
  • Once you have 'Wifi' highlighted press 'OK'
  • You will then be in the wireless settings screen.
  • You need to set 'Use Wifi' to 'Yes'
  • Use the arrow keys to make sure 'Use Wifi' is highlighted. Then press 'OK' to start changing the value. Press the up or down arrow till it says 'Yes' then press 'OK' to confirm the setting.

 

  1. Use the arrow key to change the the option 'Search Wifi Hub'
  2. Once its highlighted press 'OK'
  3. The search will find any Wifi networks in range of the terminal.

You will need to select your WiFi name to ensure its connecting to your WiFi hub.

  1. The information will show the 'SSID' which means the name of your wireless network, The 'Status' which will state if its a secured network and 'Sens' which tells you the strenth it is receiving the network. If the strength is two bars or less then it is recommended that you move the terminal into a better position to the wireless network.
  2. Use the up and down arrows to navigate to your wireless network name.
  3. Once you have highlighted your wireless network then press the 'OK' button.

Once you have pressed 'OK' you will be shown a screen that will want to know what your WiFi key (Password) is. If you have already typed it in then it will show otherwise if you are setting up the wireless for the first time then this will be blank.

  1. Initially the screen is just telling you if there is a key entered or not. To enter the key you must first press the 'OK' button on the key pad to start typing in the box.
  2. Press 'OK' when you are at the box. You DO NOT need to scroll down to the OK displayed on the screen as this is just there for when you have finished entering the key.

Once you press 'OK' you will be taken to the edit mode so that you can enter your key.

  • You can now start keying in your wifi password. Initialy the input is using T9 [Abc] which means your keypad is now typing in alphabet charechters. There is a diagram below of the keys and their corresponding letters.
  • Use the keypad with the diagram below to ebbnter your password (Key).
  • The 'Menu' button allows you to 'Backspace' to delete unwanted charechters.

 

  1. The 'Menu' button also works as backspace to delete things you have keyed in by mistake.
  2. The '0' zero key when pressed will display '^' which means the next button pressed will be in capital letters. If the '0' iteslf is pressed twice it will show '_' underscore which will put a space when the next key is pressed.

You can change from letters to charechters and numbers using the up and down arrows.

 

  1. When you press the up arrow the t9 input will change.
  2. It will show you that it is now in [!@#] which is the symbols mode. This can be used if you have symbols in your password.
