Solution 31411: Resolving Internet Connection Loss After Configuring TI-Navigator™ Network Adapter and Removing TI-Navigator Network Adapter from Classroom Network.

How do I resolve internet connection loss after configuring TI-Navigator Network Adapter and how do I removing a TI-Navigator Network Adapter from the classroom network?

Loss of internet connection after configuring the TI-Navigator Network Adapter is usually caused by configuring the Network Adapter to use a network connection that is also used for internet access or a wireless network connection. 

Please Note: The steps below only correspond to Type I and Type II Access Points pictured below. For assistance with the Nav-AP-US Access Point please visit Knowledgebase Article #31211.


Please Note: While the TI-Navigator System is a wireless device it does not use a wireless network connection to communicate with the computer. The Access Point can only connect via a wired Ethernet connection to the computer.

The Network Adapter you select in the TI-Navigator Network Manager is configured for sole use with the TI-Navigator System and cannot be switched easily to be used with normal internet connections so it is suggested to use the provided Belkin USB to Fast Ethernet Adapter if you use the Ethernet port built into your computer for internet access.
