    Motorola Canopy Wireless Troubleshooting Tips

    To help assist you with support, the following is a list of common issues that are easily resolved by
    following these simple troubleshooting tips:
     
    I have no connection to the Internet 
    Loss of connection may happen for several reasons,  but usually means that some device on your home network has lost connectivity. 
     
    Check the following: 
    1.  Make sure the power adapter (also called Power over Ethernet or POE) for the roof antenna is plugged firmly in the electrical outlet.
     
    2.  Make sure the physical network cables are connected to the wall plug, to the computer and to any routers.

    3. Make sure all routers are plugged in and powered.

    If this does not solve the issue do the following:
    Power cycle the roof antenna (also  called  “the  radio”) by unplugging the power adapter. Wait thirty seconds and plug the adapter back in.
    NOTE:  If the power adapter is plugged into apower strip, power cycle the power adapter itself, not the power strip.

    2. If you have a router, wireless router or other network device, then power cycle the device(s) by unplugging the power.  Wait 30 seconds and plug the device back in.
    NOTE: If the router/device is plugged into a power strip, power cycle the router/device itself not the power strip.

    3.  Make sure the Internet and network settings for your computer are correct and reboot your computer.

      1. Select "Connection Settings."

      1. Select "Connection 1: None."
        • If you do not have an empty connection slot, you will need to clear a slot. 

      1. Click on "Wireless Connection," then click "Search for an Access Point."

      1. Select the wireless network that is yours.

    Asked to enter a security key?
    If you are prompted to "Enter the Password or Key," then the wireless network you are trying to connect to has wireless security turned on. You will need to type in your security key or password and select "OK."

     
     
      1. Select "OK," "Save Settings," and then "Yes."
        • The Wii console will run a connection test with your wireless network. When the test is completed, you should see the following screen:

      • If the connection test was not successful, you will receive an error code.
        • Error Code 51330 or 52130: This means the security code you entered into the Wii is not the same one your router is set to. Look in your router's settings and try again. Please refer to step eight (8) above for more information.
        • All other error codes: Try  error code troubleshooting where we have detailed information on many common error codes. (You can ignore any "Wii Support Code" you receive on a connection test.)

    How to set-up wireless networking on your PSP

    Wireless networking might seem like a black art to rival witchcraft but in reality it's a very simple issue. You can think of it like a radio; if you're in an area that's covered by a wireless network ? maybe you've got one at home, university, school or work ? then your PSP can receive that broadcast signal and tune into it. However, while it'll try and do this by itself, it does need some input from you. For instance, many wireless networks are encrypted these days to keep them secure from computer hackers and you'll need to enter a special code (called a WEP key) into your PSP in order to connect to it. Once you are connected to a wireless network you can use the Network Update feature to connect your PSP to the internet and update its software, play multiplayer games and more!

    Your PSP will detect any wireless wireless network within its range as long as the wireless adapter is switched on. The switch for this is on the left end of the PSP, near the analogue thumbstick. If the switch is in the down position, the wireless network adapter is off; push the switch into the up position and it'll turn it on. If you're not going to be using wireless networking it's a good idea to keep it turned off as it'll make your batteries last longer.
     
    When you turn on your PSP's wireless adapter it'll look for any wireless networks nearby. If there's another PSP within range it'll automatically set up what's called an 'ad-hoc' network between the two. This will enable you to play multiplayer games between the two PSPs with one hosting the game and the other joining it. When you want to join an existing wireless network, such as when you want to browse the internet, you'll be using an 'infrastructure' wireless networking mode.
    To connect to a wireless network, go to the home screen of your PSP and look under Settings. If you scroll all the way to the bottom you'll find Network Settings, so enter this and on the next screen you'll be asked to choose between Ad-Hoc and Infrastructure, so pick the latter by selecting it and pressing X. Press O to return to the previous screen. You'll need to set up a Connection. You can save the settings for 10 different Connections and you can choose between the Connections you've set up whenever you need to use the Infrastructure network mode.
    Pick New Connection and press X. You can give the new Connection a name by pressing X and using the text-entry screen. Give it a descriptive name like 'Home Network' or 'University Network' so you know when and where you can use it. When you've entered the name for your new Connection you'll be asked whether you want to scan for WLAN settings or to enter them manually; select the Scan option and press right on the directional-pad. Your PSP will then scan the area for any available networks and collect the settings needed.
    A list of available networks (called Access Points) will be displayed, giving its name (called an SSID), whether it's encrypted or not and the signal strength. If there is more than one network, use the D-pad to scroll down to the one you want to join and press X. You'll be asked to confirm the settings so press right on the D-pad to scroll through each. When you get to the security settings, choose the appropriate setting from the list, which is WEP in most cases, and press right on the D-pad again. If you need to enter the WEP key, speak to whoever runs the wireless network and they'll provide it for you. Press X and enter the WEP using the text-entry screen.

    Once you've done that you can check the settings you've entered on the final screen and save them. Now you'll be able to connect to the wireless network. If you return to the main home screen you can now update your PSP's software by going to Settings and selecting Network Update. Alternatively you can go to the Network section on the far right of the home screen to browse the internet using the PSP's in-built internet browser. Or you can fire up that multi-player game you've been itching to try out and get going!

     

    How to connect your OS X Mac to a wireless network

    How to connect your OS X Mac to a wireless network

    Much like everything else about OS X, connecting to a wireless network is painfully easy. But if you’re not familiar w/ OS X, and need to walk someone else through it, the following steps might prove helpful.

      1. When connecting your Mac to a wireless network, one of the first things you’ll want to do is make sure that the AirPort icon is enabled in your Menu bar. If it’s already there, please skip down to Step 5.

      1. Select the Apple Button (very upper left corner of your screen) and chooseSystem Preferences… from the drop-down list. From there, select Network.

      1. Select you AirPort entry, and click the Configure… button.

      1. Make sure the Airport tab is selected from the top menu, and then place a check in the box labelled Show AirPort status in menu bar

      1. Click the AirPort icon in your menu bar, and you should be presented with a list of visible wireless networks. Select the network you want to join.

      1. If the network requires a password, you’ll be prompted to enter it now. If it doesn’t, you should automatically connect.

      1. When you’re connected, the AirPort icon will change from a ‘light grey’ color to a solid black. The number of solid black lines indicates the signal strength (more black bars = stronger signal). That’s it!
