When the ethernet is removed from an AX-SSC controller, all of the devices underneath that controller unexplainably lose their connection to the controller.
The firmware of the SSC is outdated.
The firmware of the SSC needs to be upgraded to version 24.01.241. This can be accomplished with the following procedure:
1. From AccessXpert (the firmware of the SSC can only be updated within AccessXpert, not from the Device Administrator), select the "Hardware Provisioning" tab.
2. Click "Controllers", and then select the correct SSC controller.
3. Under "General Info" verify the "Reported Version Number". If less than 24.01.241, the firmware needs to be updated. Click "Update Firmware".
