A USB device or adapter dongle doesn’t work or interferes with other USB devices randomly. How can I make them work properly?
USB 3.0 has been found to cause interference that may hinder the performance of nearby wireless devices in the 2.4GHz band, including RF devices, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth.
For wireless devices in the 2.4GHz range, we suggest using the USB port on the front I/O. If the connected device's manual recommends a different USB port, do follow those guidelines.
For more details, please refer to the below white paper from Intel.
Why can't I pair my IAM (Identity and Access Management) account with AMS (Account Management System), DMS (Device Management Solution), or X-Sign Broadcast?
Currently, AMS, DMS, and X-Sign Broadcast may all only be paired to one unified IAM admin account. If different IAM admin accounts are used, pairing will fail. For example, if DMS is paired already to an IAM account, you won't be able to pair AMS or X-Sign Broadcast with a new IAM account unless other BenQ services (EX: DMS) are deleted. In essence, AMS, DMS, and X-Sign go together with one IAM account and all need to be unpaired to switch IAM account association.
If you would like to pair software with a new IAM account, please delete the devices in associated BenQ services (DMS, AMS, Broadcast) from the corresponding web site. If other BenQ services are deleted but still encounter a pairing issue, please record the MAC address and contact your local BenQ service center for further assistance.
