Some failures are related to heat, most are not. The DR repeaters have excellent cooling. Unless the Read more…


When a WiRES-X node keeps going online then offline, this type of problem is almost always the result of a networking issue. A networking problem will occur and will wack out the HRI-200 software. Once the software has been wacked out, it will continue to cycle in and out of whatever room it is connected to. Restarting the WiRES-X software usually solves the problem. Router problems:1. Turn off UPnP. It should never be used!!!!!!2. Turn off all quality of service Read more…


If you’re having problems with USB problems when using WiRES-X with or without other programs, read on.

Virtual COM ports can be identified by the port Read more…
