In certain situations the wireless transmitter in the Laser Tracker MCU is on, but you cannot connect to the computer or the computer does not have a wireless receiver. In this case you can reset the wireless transmitter and temporarily connect using the cross-wired Ethernet cable. There is a wireless reset button inside the MCU. To press the reset button, you need a thin 0.05mm/0.002in metal blade.
