Frequently Asked Questions

Setup Wizard does not display your WiFi network

During WiFi Device setup your WiFi network is not visible.

Possible solutions:
  1. Make sure the selected WiFi connection is 2.4 GHz. See also the 'How To check frequency EN.pdf' document.
  2. Close the setup wizard, wait a few seconds, restart the setup wizard.
  3. Try moving the Device somewhere else in range of the network.
Even if your computer can see the WiFi network, the device may not be able to because the WiFi module doesn't have the same range.


 

Designs are not found on the machine

After WiFi Device setup:
    -The power LED is solid green
    -The WiFi LED is solid blue
    -The Devic state indicator LED is solid green

Try the different settings available in the BERNINA WiFi Connector - Advanced Settings.
We recommend to test one after the other.
Keep the WiFi Device connected to the machine to test the different settings.
The 'Serial interface' settings needs to be activated again if for some reason you want to connect the WiFi Device to a computer. For example to setup on a different computer.
Be ware that changing memory size or emulation mode in the advanced settings will delete all designs saved on the device.

After WiFi Device setup:
    - The power LED is solid green
    - The WiFi LED is blinking blue (fast)
    - Designs cannot be sent to the WiFi Device

WiFi Device will not connect

After WiFi Device Setup:
    -The power LED is solid green
    -The WiFi LED is blinking blue

Possible solutions:
