Connect directly to Speedway via an ethernet cable

Follow


In firmware 4.12.0.240 or later you can connect directly to Speedway using an ethernet cable. This is particularly useful when a DHCP based LAN is not handy.

Step 1:

Connect an ethernet cable between your PC/laptop and Speedway

Step 2:

Access Speedway at address 169.254.1.1

  • Using a web browser connect  to http://169.254.1.1
  • Connect to RShell using ssh 169.254.1.1

 

Note: The Speedway reader must set to ipAddressMode=’Dynamic’     (default setting)

    Hi,

    Is the default address always this zeroconf one of 169.254.1.1? And what does it look like when I am provisioning multiple readers at the same time and thus will have an IP confilict?

    If I do a factory default reset (aka the paper clip reset button) on 4.12 will the reader revert to using this default multicast address of 169.254.1.1?

    Thanks.

    Matt,

    If 169.254.1.1 is not available, the reader will then randomly select a fixed IP address in the 169.254.xxx.xxx link local address range.

    This feature is mainly useful for configuring one reader at a time. For configuring multiple readers at a time it would be best to have a DHCP network that allows you to address by the speedwayr-XX-XX-XX where -XX-XX-XX is the part of the speedway mac address.
