Configuring the G-Box (Model Q)
Technical Level: Moderate
This article refers to the Matricom G-Box Q which has a blue lit 'G' then powered. If your G-Box has a stamped silver 'G' (not lit) on the top, you should see the article for the Midnight model.
The steps in this article will walk you through setting up your Matricom G-Box Model Q.
PLEASE NOTE: in order for your G-Box Android device to display the ClockwiseMD wait room or nurse screen web pages, it must first have a reliable Internet connection. If your G-Box or nurse screen are displaying messages indicating a network outage, ClockwiseMD Support will not be able to help you troubleshoot any issues unless/until you first restore Internet connectivity.
If your G-Box has already been configured, it may have temporarily lost connectivity to the Internet. You may be able to restore connectivity by performing any or all of the following:
• Find the G-Box remote and click the red power button upper-left. If the screen presents a reboot option, click Reboot and allow the G-Box to reboot and then boot all the way up to the home screen. The G-Box is configured to automatically start the UrgentQ app 15 seconds after first displaying the home page. A few seconds after switching to the UrgentQ page, it should then load the web page which displays your patient queue.
• If your G-Box does not display a reboot option, it is a newer firmware version (1.4). See the addendum of the attached instructions for a workaround to the reboot option. You can also reboot the G-Box by locating the box and unplugging the small, round power cable (right side as you face the back), leaving it out for ten seconds, and then re-plugging the power cable to the box.
If network connectivity still has not been restored, you can additionally try any of the following:
• Re-position the G-Box to give it best line-of-sight to the wifi router which services it;
• If using your clinic's guest wifi network, consider placing the G-Box on your production network;
• If the G-Box is located some distance from the router, it may be on the fringe of connectivity; consider installing a wireless access point between your router and G-Box to increase signal strength
• The G-Box may be hard-wired to your network via an Ethernet cable plugged into the RJ-45 port on the back of the G-Box; if you do this, you'll need to reconfigure the G-Box in its settings so that the wifi is turned 'off' and the Ethernet connection is turned 'on'.
