10. TROUBLESHOOTING GUIDE
ISSUE
SOLUTION
Wi-Fi Connection issues
Ensure that the Wi-Fi of the PC/Laptop
(both PC2TV and DLNA
being used is enabled and properly
modes)
configured.
Check that any Wi-Fi hardware is properly
installed and functioning, including fitting
any antennas that may be required.
Ensure that there is a good Wi-Fi signal
by limiting the distance between the
PC/Laptop and the unit and reducing
obstacles that may impair the quality of
the Wi-Fi signal (such as walls/doors etc.)
Check that the PC2TV application is
properly installed, and comunicating with
the unit (refer to Section 9.1).
PERFORMANCE ISSUES (PC2TV MODE)
WiFi operating correctly
Temporarily disable any virus checking
but no connection
software then try again, as it could block
between PC/Laptop
communication between the PC/Laptop
and CWF-901SP
and the unit. If it is confirmed, set the
PC2TV application to be allowed by the
virus checking software.
PERFORMANCE ISSUES (PC2TV MODE)
Temporarily disable the firewall of the PC or Laptop's OS and then
try again. The firewall could be blocking communication. If it is
confirmed, set the PC2TV application to be allowed by the firewall.
When the PC/Laptop first connects to CWF-901SP, if the OS prompts
and asks whether this is a public, home or a private connection, do
not select public.
15
Sluggish or delayed
Ensure that the PC/Laptop being used
playback of image,
meets the minimum requirements (refer to
video and audio
Section 4 for details).
Ensure that the drivers for the graphics
card (or embedded graphics chipset) of
the PC/Laptop are up-to-date.
Shutdown any running applications that
are not necessary to free up the PC/
Laptops resources. If there are several
applications running on the PC/Laptop,
the overall performance of the PC/
Laptop may be degraded, including the
communication with the unit.
GENERAL ISSUES (BOTH PC2TV AND DLNA MODES)
Ensure that the unit is properly powered. Only use the 5V power
supply included in the package.
If an Ethernet cable is used to connect the PC / Laptop to the unit,
ensure that the cable is not faulty or damaged and that it is properly
connected.
