Offline Controllers

Locate the NetGen door controller for that door.  It may be installed in the ceiling above the door or in a nearby network closet. Depending on the NetGen version, it will look like one of these:




Once you’ve found it:

  • The green LED on the board should be lit.
  • There should be a network (ethernet) cable plugged into the board. A solid green light here indicates a valid connection, and an accompanying flickering orange light signifies connectivity.
  • If the board appears to have power, try to reset the network connection. There is a small white button on the short side of the board, counter-clockwise from where the ethernet cable plugs in.  Press the button for 3 seconds, then release.
  • Wait several minutes for the server to attempt to re-establish communication. If the door remains OFFLINE, confirm the viability of the ethernet cable and the configuration of the switch port that it's plugged into.
