Overview
To create a repeater/slave radio (DXM100-S1R2/DXM100- S2R2) that will only communicate with the
master radio in a MultiHop network through a specific radio (or multiples), implement a forced route
path in the repeater/slave radio. This is done on the DXM units via the display.
Enter the Device ID of the desired repeater radio into the repeater/slave radio you want to force
through the specific repeater. This is done under the FcrParent (forced routing to a parent radio) section
in the repeater/slave unit.
•
•
Enter the device address of the parent device to force all routing to that parent device.
Set to zero to remove the forced routing.
MultiHop Routing Method and Nomenclature
A parent radio in the MultiHop network is either the Master radio or the radio used by a repeater/slave
radio to get back to the Master radio.

Determining Parent Radio’s Routing Number
To determine the Device ID of the parent radio that you want to force a repeater/slave through, use the
display of the DXM100-S1R2/DXM100-S2R2.
Figure 1 - Scroll to the "Radio" section on the DXM display
Figure 2 - In the Radio screen, select the “Setup” section.

Figure 3 - Under the Setup screen select the "Device ID" section. Record the Device ID as you will need to enter this exact
value in the repeater/slave radio you want to force through this radio. In the above example, the Device ID is 5354.
Setting Forced Routing Number in Slave Radio
Enter the Device ID of the desired parent radio in the desired path back to the Master via the method
shown below.
Figure 4 - Select the "Radio" section from the main display.

Figure 5 -Enter the "Setup" section under the Radio section.
Figure 6 - Under the "FrcParent" section, enter in the device ID of the radio you want to push this radio through. A"0" value
means that there is no forced routing enabled for this radio. *discregard the “Device ID” on this figure as I used the same
Device for each image in this document.

Figure 7 - Enter the Device ID of the radio you want to push this radio through. Use the Up/Down buttons to scroll to the
proper Device ID and then press ENTER. Once you press enter, simply back out of the screens using the BACK button until
you are again at the Main Screen (the title of the screen will be “BannerEng”).
Additional Force Routed Radios
Repeat the previous steps in other radios that you would like to force through a specific repeater path to
get back to the Master. Always use repeater radios that are physically between the repeater/slave you
want to direct and the Master radio.
Final Step – Cycle Power at the Master Radio
Because the Master radio retains the operating RF routing table, it is always the best practice to cycle
power at the Master radio to force the Master radio to re-establish the new routing table.
After this has occurred, the repeater/slave radio with the forced routing path established will be
directed to connect through the defined radio while communicating back to the Master radio.
Removing Forced Routing
After Forced Routing has been enabled on any remote radio, disabled it by setting the FrcParent to 0.
Cycle power at the Master radio to force the development of a new routing table.
