    Hi Guys new to this site, so just want a bit advise please. First I would like to say sorry for any dumb questions, but I am really new to this field wyse etc and I don’t have a clue.

    My managing director has asked me to enable WiFi on a Wyse 3125SE Thin Client.

    I have downloaded the Actiontec driver Addon_ACTIONTEC_B0015.exe. Now I have tried using the NetXfer to install the bin even renamed it to bootp.bin (that didn’t work) file and nothing happens it just says current transfer nill. I even added the file accross FTP (Nothing happened there) I have M$JVM installed and I am running IE7 followed the instruction adding a second IP etc and I even tried running the MKUTC as shown below.

    C:NetXfer>mkutc.bat actiontecaddon400.bin

    Image To UTC conversion Program v9.0 (atf)
    Added Image:’ tftp.dat’ Base: 00100200 Cumulative: 00008000
    Added Image:’ ulc_code.pk’ Base: 00108200 Cumulative: 00040000
    Searching for Index 3

    Creating Downloadable Image:’bootp.bin’
    Execution [00100200]

    Conversion Complete.

    Know I know the link to terminal in working, as I can ping the device and FTP it. I have turned my firewall off on the machine I am use to connect to it. I tried using the WDM but couldn’t figure out how that worked it was asking for a broadcast or manual address 😯 .

    All I am really after is to install the WiFi USB Dongle. If I am going along the wrong path can someone explain the simplest way to install this device for a Newbie πŸ™ .

    Thx in Advance
    Zorolord πŸ™‚

    If you’re just doing this on one ore two clients, there is a real easy way to deploy it using an ftp server.

    1. Download the file and run it. It’s a self extracting executable. Extract it to a temporary directory. In this case, we’ll extract it to C:Temp

    2. Make a directory on an FTP server. In this case, we’ll call it actiontec

    3. Copy the actiontecaddon400.bin and params.ini file from the Addon_ActiontecAddon_Actiontec_b0015_CEN folder to the directory you made on the FTP server.

    4. Start your thin client, go to the control panel and double click the AddOns applet to start it.

    5. Click the Add Button. In the space provided, enter the name of your FTP server and the path that you copied the files to on the FTP server.

    6. Click the upgrade button (or whatever it’s called down in the lower right). The client will make two checks; the first one will make sure it can connect to the FTP server. The second check will be looking for Params.ini.

    If you get an error saying the upgrade could not be found, make sure you can talk to the FTP server. If you get an error about params.ini, make sure you have entered the correct path.

    7. When the upgrade is finished, it will return you to the AddOns. When you close this window, you will be told that you have to reboot — let it. When it comes back up, the driver should be installed for you.

    I have a new problem. I have upgraded the addon for Actiontec wireless network adapter. However when I insert the Action USB WiFi Adapter, I receive the following error unidentified USB Device. Then it asks me for the driver name I have tried various driver names i.e Actiontec – Actiontecaddon400 and Tec etc. I have even tried two different Wyse 3125SE one with 16 MB with Firmware 4.20 Hot Fix 20 (Build 506. 420) and the second was 32MB with Version 5.0.

    My colleague reckons the driver needs to be installed as well. I asked him surely when you install the Add on that includes the driver at the device level. I would like to know who is right and what we are doing wrong?

    The WiFi Adapter is a Actiontec Model: VNT 6656AU. I downloaded the Actiontecaddon400 – Which was Addon_ACTIONTEC_B0015.exe on the wyse website Version: 3.02 Build: 0015 153501-08

    I would greatly appreciate anyone’s input on this matter.

    Cheers

    Hi Zorolord,

    I have seen this as well. AFAIK this is related to the firmware level of the Actiontec card.
    Check the label on the back of the card. It should say something like F/W, P: , S:
    Tell us your finding.
    Installing the Actiontec addon is all you have to do. This installs all needed drivers. Once CE asks you for a driver name, you have lost. There is nothing you can enter to make it work.

    Hi ConfGen

    The detail of Action Card are as followed :-

    Model: VNT6656AU
    FCC ID: SVE-633VNT6656AU
    MAC ID: 00127B404F77
    S/N: M0701002650E

    Another ID is CCAD06LP1840T7

    Unfortunately that’s all it has, for some reason no ref to f/w or P:

    Cheers

    p.s I have also tried installing USBMGCOM Addon CE Version(s): 4.2, 5.0
    Version: 1.0 , Build: 0014 & the Wyse WiFi v2.0 B Addon_ACTIONTEC_B0014.exe Version: 3.00.02 Wyse build: 0014 Compatible Winterm 3 Series Thin Client Version(s): 4.x which appears to be an older version of the Actiontec driver that I tried initially.

    Hi Zorolord,

    what you are using is NOT the Actiontec card. It is the new USB Wyse WLAN stick.
    To get this running you’ll need this addon.

    Hi ConfGen

    Thanks for Information my supplier said it was an Actiontec – He will be getting a mouth full – When I speak to him next πŸ‘Ώ

    When I attempt to install the addon I receive the following error.

    Can not add this firmware due to the incompatible firmware installed.

    I have uninstalled the firmware again and reflashed the CE and still no joy πŸ˜₯

    You should contact Wyse support to get your hands on Build 541 or higher. This will work.
