    I have a Napco Gemini P3200 that I installed myself a few years ago. I
    recently decided to add another keypad. I assigned one keypad as 1 and the
    other as 2. I figured out that I also needed to tell the system that I have
    two keypads installed for it to recognize the second keypad.

    I guess that I knew just enough about programming that I did something that
    I should not have. Instead of telling the system that I have two keypads in
    area 1, I think that what I did was assign keypad 1 to area 2. Area 2 does
    not exist in my system. Now I can not access ANYTHING from EITHER keypad.
    They are both "Out of System". Keypad 2 has not been defined in the system
    yet, and now my programming keypad, keypad 1, is set up for an area that
    does not exist!

    I recently purchased the Namco Quickloader software thinking that that would
    be the way to solve my problem. It won't connect to the panel. I don't
    know if it is something with my modem and connection set-up, or if the panel
    is not connecting because it is messed up. I am using one phone line in my
    house to try to dial into the alarm phone line.

    I really don't want to have to clear out the whole panel and start again.
    Besides, I don't even know if there is a way to do a hard reset on this
    thing even if I wanted to.

    Any thoughts? Would a direct connection work? I don't have that hardware
    piece to connect my laptop to the board.

    Any help is appreciated.
