/* Networking the USB port - formatting the Silex installation instructions 1/2
Consult your IT department decide which solution is best for you.
 
=== Silex installation ===
 
==== Wireless ====
 
One reason to choose the wireless Silex solution is it provides a safety air-gap between equipment in the tower that is exposed to lightning and other static sources outside the building and expensive inside equipment on the network.
 
For a wireless connection with the Silex, click the link above then go to Documentation and choose the PDF file [https://silexamerica.com/uploads/common/ds520an-setupguide-eng1.pdf Setup Guide]. Refer to the diagram that names the Parts and Functions while following this procedure.
 
* Plug in the Chime Master carillon.
* Connect a USB cable between the USB port of the Silex and the port on the carillon.
* Plug the wire from the AC adapter into the Silex power connector port and plug in the AC adapter to power.
* Using the push switch, turn power on to the Silex and the single green power LED should appear solid. The WLAN LED will blink Orange or be solid green.
* Push the WPS button on your wireless router. Push and hold the push switch (power button) on the Silex until the WLAN LED blinks green.
** If it blinks red, there was a failure. Unplug the Silex and start again at the asterisk.
* Return to the Silex product page and click on DS-520AN Support in the Quick Links section of the page. From the support page you can download SX-Virtual Link for Windows.
* Install SX-Virtual Link and run it. The CMS carillon should be shown as connected.
* When you open the Management Suite software, the top should display that you are (Connected).
