Problem BMW r1150gsa and GS911
« on: June 26, 2020, 03:28:27 AM »
I tried to conect my new GS-911wifi to my old r1150gsa, but there is no comunication, i get an error message, using a wifi method, direct cable method, i did get to conect and read fault codes no the ABS computer, but was a one time thing, after that only error messages. Any ideas?

More information re the GS911 WiFi & your PC etc would be needed to assist

1/ Did yo register the GS911 ?
2/ Did you Update the GS911 firmware when you first connected it, I see you configured it into your WiFi network
3/ Did you download & Install the WiFi utilities along with the PC Application ? , if so which versions
4/ What is the PC, Win 7 or Win 10

OK, you have done all the right things so I would suggest lodging a support ticket with Hexcode https://www.hexcode.co.za/contact-us-1

Re the WiFi Utility, it has some nice network tests in it so is useful, in addition logging into your WiFi router & setting it so it always allocates the same IP No to the GS911 is handy so you can bookmark it in browser

On the older bikes the sidestand switch inhibits comms.  Put the bike on the main stand.

I am not saying that this is definitely the problem, but it is something that caught me out and wasted much time and effort.

Can you confirm you updated the firmware of the GS911 & registered it ?, it is also important to specify year & model of the bike on the forum

Report the problem to Hexcode on the support email
