Strange problem here, we can't find a solution too.

We would like to replace an older router (WEP) with a newer one. We can't get the Pronto RFX9600 to see the new SSID. It only wants to connect to the one it always has.

Is it that it will only see WEP SSIDs, and not mixed mode, or is there a way to tell it which network to connect to (I can change it's IP address easily, and the extender will only see the Pronto when it connects via the old SSID, but I can't find any way to tell the extender or the Pronto 9600 which wireless network to use.

I'm not really clear what you're asking. You have to input the SSID (and hopefully WEP/WPA encryption keys) into PronoEdit and then load the new configuration into your device(s).

I have to look again. I'm missing where it is in ProntoEdit.

In ProntoEdit, I only see where it allows you to add an extender, and specify an ID address.

Where does it allow the choice of SSID, WEP/WPA key, etc...

The RFX9600 does not connect via wireless and therefore does not require SSID. However, the subnet mask and gateway on the RFX9600 do matter.

You might want to have a look at the manual available here in the files section that explains how to configure the RFX9600.

You'll need to change the SSID in which the Pronto TSU-9600(9400 or 9800) sees. As stated above the RFX-9600(9400) does not need to be pointed to a new SSID. As they are plugged into the new router via the Ethernet cable.

In Pronto Edit, while working on the file that is downloaded into the Pronto TSU-9X00 unit. You'll have to look at the Network tab. Under there you'll see where the SSID and passcode is entered. This can be under the Master Project area or the Device Project area. It all depends on your setup.

I recommend saving the original file by itself and make a copy of the new file just in case something goes wrong.

Ah. Found it under Project / System Properties / Network Settings.


Thanks. Was going crazy trying to figure this out.

Now, just have to make sure this works.
