Troubleshooting When Working with KDS

1. Separate Router

Often problems of losing the connection between Loyverse POS  and KDS appear when there are many other Wi-Fi connections to the same Wi-Fi router.
We recommend having separate router with Wi-Fi connection only to the mobile device with Loyverse POS App and mobile devices with KDS App.

If the problem continues or you cannot have separate router go to next step.

2. Assign a static IP address to the kitchen display tablet

Connect your device to the same WiFi network as the device with Loyverse POS is connected to, and make sure the connection is working. Then change your network settings DHCP (automatic) to static (manual).


On an Android tablet, go to Settings > WiFi, tap and hold the active network, then tap 'Manage network settings'. Tap 'Show advanced options' and scroll down to IP settings, then change 'DHCP' to 'Static'. Tap 'Save'.
