Before you begin using SureTrack, you must turn on Wi-Fi and select a wireless network connection. To begin, select Tools from the Home Screen.
Next select Settings.
Select Configure Wi-Fi.
If the screen displays a message “Wi-Fi is Off”, select the Wi-Fi Power icon to turn the Wi-Fi on. The Wi Fi power icon will change from a green check mark icon to a red “X” icon indicating Wi-Fi radio is currently set to on.
Select your desired network connection. Use the scroll feature to show all active connections.
If the network is password protected, a keyboard will appear. Simply enter your network password.
Select Connect to connect to your desired network
From the Connect confirmation screen select OK to continue using this connection or Forget to disconnect this connection.
The screen will change to display your network connection highlighted with a status message of “Connected” and an indicator showing the current Wi-Fi signal strength. You are now ready to access the power of SureTrack.
If you are experiencing network connection issues, an automated feature is available to quickly test your network connection. Before you start the automated testing procedure, turn off the diagnostic tool and turn it back on. This clears previous testing messages from memory. Then, connect to your desired network.
From the Wi-Fi configuration screen, select the Wi-Fi Test icon to open the network connection test screen. The network connection test is an automated test that begins when the screen is displayed.
Network connection systems are tested in sequence and display a status indicator. Red indicates that the test failed. Green shows that the test completed satisfactorily.
If a connection issue is present, select View Summary to view the results.
The summary information is helpful if you are experiencing difficulties with your connection. Scroll through the summary information to review the test results for each system and Tip messages for the current connection issue.
