Digitrax Wifi and Radio throttle interference
Author: RGZ17

My club uses a Digitrax system. We have a couple Digitrax LNWI units that were donated to us by a generous club member several years ago and I would like to start using a wifi throttle. I was informed that we had initially set them up and then found out that the LNWI system was preventing Digitrax radio throttles from functioning unless they were plugged in to the Loco Net. Has anyone here experienced this issue and if so has anyone found a solution to this problem?

My layout is digitrax wifi only. I have been on other layouts with digitrax single-plex communication and LNWI and had no issues. Not sure about duplex, but several have said, no issues with all 3 in use at club setups for large venues.

Should be no issues.  I have been to layouts that have both working with no issues.  I think there is something else going on.

From https://www.digitrax.com/tsd/KB913/adding-radio-or-ir/
All three types of tetherless control and walk around wired control can operate simultaneously on your LocoNet layout

I had some issues with a club modular layout a couple of years while back using a UR93/LNWI Digitrax system. I updated the firmware of the LNWI, UR93 and the DCS 210 command station as well as the two throttles that had updates available. After that I had no more issues. I do recall seeing some posts 2 or so years ago on the Digitrax iogroups forum about issues of this type and something about changing the channels on the UR93 and LNWI. I'm going from memory here so I don't recall exactly now what the discussion was all about. 

You might want to touch bases with Digitrax Support about it or check the Digitrax forum if you are a member of the group.

As stated, I know numerous layouts with Digitrax wireless and the LNWI and no issues. You have to update everything. The throttles, command stations and the LNWI and the UR92/93 also. It will work fine. Good luck. Bruce
