  • The default SSID is linksys_wma11b.

  • If there is a good signal and the screen states “waiting for host” make sure that the utility is installed and that PC has a connection to the network. Also try rebooting the PC.

  • If the signal strength is 0%, check ssid by pressing “Setup” on the remote control.

  • On average it takes about 2 – 3 minutes for the WMA11B to find the host PC.

  • If everything was working before and all of a sudden it stops, power cycle everything (WMA11B; PC; AP)
