    Title:
    Known Issue - Win7 Fallback IP Addressing and UHF-Rs
    Description:

    There is a known issue with Windows 7 machines when using fallback IP addressing. It is likely that you will not be able to discover UHF-R receivers with the following scenario:

    • Running Windows 7 OS
    • Your computer is set to expect an automatically assigned IP address (DHCP mode)
    • Have UHF-R receivers on the network set to expect an automatically assigned IP address (DHCP mode)
    • Have no DHCP server

    In this scenario, both your computer and all UHF-R receivers should all be on their fallback IP addresses. Even if these devices happen to fall within the same (valid) subnet, we have seen issues with Windows 7 machines discovering UHF-R devices.

    Possible solutions to this issue include:

    • Connect a DHCP server to your network (router, AXT620 Ethernet Switch, etc)
    • Assign static IP addresses manually to all devices and your computer

    There is not a known cause for this issue at this point in time. When one is found, it will be posted to this thread.
