NOTE: The Vega3000 automatically runs required configuration updates that can take about 5 minutes to complete. When the updates are occurring, please allow the terminal to complete the updates before attempting to process transactions.

Step 2: Connect to Network

Note: The Vega3000 has the option to connect to the internet by wifi or ethernet port connection.

Option 1: Enable Ethernet Mode

 To enable Ethernet mode, simply select option 1 "Ethernet" and make sure that you connect the device to an available ethernet port. No other configuration is needed.

Option 2: Enable WiFi Mode


Select a Network

With WiFi mode enabled, the terminal should automatically detect available WiFi networks and display them as shown here:


Select the WiFi network to be used and press the green enter button: 

Enter the password for the network and click the green enter button. Repeatedly press a number on the keypad to cycle through upper and lower case letters listed on the key. Use the 0 key to cycle through symbols (such as !, $ etc). Selections will be entered after waiting for about one second. Press Enter when finished.

The terminal display will show the following once the terminal has connected to the network. If the Settings menu appears, simply press the Cancel button twice to exit the Settings menu and the Main Menu.

If the terminal has not yet been paired, you should see the following:

Once the terminal has been paired, you should see "Slyce" written across the screen. This means that the terminal is ready to process transactions.

Once the terminal has been connected to a WiFi network, it should automatically default to the selected network upon start-up. You should not have to re-enter the network password.

Switching Between WiFi Networks


To use a different network, you can either manually scan for the available networks, or you can choose to 'forget' the current network and let the terminal automatically scan for the available networks.
