Issue Details

When I press the Wireless button on the myRIO it doesn't start a Wireless configuration utility. Why does the wireless LED on myRIO not light up when I am transmitting data over the wireless network?


Currently the Wireless Button is not enabled in the myRIO driver. Because the Wireless Button is not enabled, it will not start a wireless configuration utility. It is also not readable from a VI so cannot be used as a general purpose button.

Before NI-RIO 14.0 the Wireless LED was not enabled in the myRIO driver. This has now been fixed. The Wireless LED should now light when Wireless is enabled. The On/Off Switch is also now enabled and will toggle Wireless functionality.
