I run a network for a hospital system. we recently upgraded our wireless controllers at one of our hospitals to the 7.0 code. Since then all of our GE EKG carts using a Silex SX-500 Wireless Serial Terminal Server to connect to our wireless network are not functioning. I was wondering if anyone else in the healthcare environment has seen this issue? Is there a fix for it. When we take a cart to another of our hospitals running 6.0 code it works fine.
We had the same issue. I'm guessing that you're running WEP. We converted our GE carts to WPA/PSK which appears to fix the problem. It looks like 184.108.40.206 may have an issue with pre-shared keys. We also have about 75 Masimo Pulse-oxs with silex cards running WPA-PSK without any issues. We still have an issue with some PCA pumps with embedded Digi cards running WPA-PSK.
Are you broadcasting the SSID that the Silex Devices connect to? Also do you know what firmware release you are running on the Silex SX-500??
We were running WPA-PSK before the upgrade. We are running the same version of code as you are and even when we remove all the security settings opn the SSID it wont connect. We did notice that the silex box behaves very oddly as far a channel and power settings are concerned. I may have GE reset the silex box to default and reconfigure and see if that help.
We had the same issue. Check out this post
We downgraded to 220.127.116.11, but are getting bit by bugID CSCte90918 when we downgraded. I got a hold of the engineering code for 18.104.22.168 and am testing it now.
