Re: Ethernet connection to GTOCP4

Some routers have an optional security feature of blocking communications between wireless devices. That might explain the first router. It can usually turned on and off.

Second router could be an issue of wireless signal saturation. Try increasing the distance between the router and devices to see if the communication improves.

PingPlotter is a cool graphical IP ping tool that can give insights when troubleshooting network issues.

Update: with the new router, though it connects fine, when running, there seem to be quite frequent packet losses. Again, probably not the mount and probably the router. But happens on both TCP and UDP. Switching back to direct connection from CP4 to laptop, UDP is still rock solid. Hmm. Surely not two dodgy routers?! :-)
