We have 18 generators and have everything connected but the computer is not seeing all of them and the numbers are all mixed up. Generator 1 comes up as 15 on the computer and 2 may be 14 but it says not detected. What to do?

First suggestion is to unplug all of the generators, then start plugging them in one at a time, while watching the Devices and Printers page of Control Panel.

Once the first shows up correct, plug in the second, wait for it, and repeat until all are connected.

Remember, though, that Windows assigns numbers at will, so they may be all over the place - and change whenever a reboot is needed.

Don't get too hung up on it - I use Post-It Notes to keep track of which is where and just move them around as needed.
