How To: Change the LAN type on the PAX Device

Depending on your local network, you may need to set your PAX device to use either Static LAN Mode or DHCP LAN mode.

 

Setting DCHP (letting the router assign an IP address) on your PAX payment terminal device

You may need to let the router assign an IP address for your device, particularly when setting up the device for the first time.

  1. Press Menu or "FUNC" and "1" at the same time
  2. Enter your password (default password is the current date in MMDDYYYY format)
  3. Scroll down 1 page and press "2. Communication"
  4. Enter your password again
  5. Scroll down 1 page and press "3. LAN Parameters"
  6. Press "1. Lan Type"
  7. Press "1. DHCP"
  8. Go back to the home screen by using the back button on the screen several times.
  9. Go back into Lan Type and verify DHCP is selected before proceeding.
  10. Go back to the home screen by using the back button on the screen several times.

You will need to power cycle (unplug and replug the power cable) the device for it to receive a new IP address from the router.

 

Using a static IP address on your PAX payment terminal device

If the IP address assigned to your PAX device changes, you will need to update the IP address in your RepairQ Payment Device settings before the point of sale will be able to communicate with the device again. To prevent this from happening, you can setup the device to use a static IP. Here is how:

  1. Press Menu or "FUNC" and "1" at the same time
  2. Enter your password (default password is the current date in MMDDYYYY format)
  3. Scroll down 1 page and press "2. Communication"
  4. Enter your password again
  5. Scroll down 1 page and press "3. LAN Parameters"
  6. Press "1. Lan Type"
  7. Press "2. Static"
  8. Go back to the home screen by using the back button on the screen several times.
  9. Go back into Lan Type and verify DHCP is selected before proceeding.
  10. Go back to the home screen by using the back button on the screen several times.

You will need to power cycle (unplug and replug the power cable) the device for it to receive a new IP address from the router.
