-USB to ethernet adapters can be tricky sometimes, in FIRST Canada we recommend using this one from Amazon Basics. Teams should make sure to bring their own, as the ones your fields may or may not have have likely had some wear and tear.
-Sometimes when you tether to your robot at competitions, IPs may not reconfigure automatically. When you get to the field your robot may not connect, the solution we’ve found works for us up north here is releasing and renewing the IP
-Try and get a driver station that has enough USB ports for you, USB hubs create more points of failure.
-Replace the laptop you get in the KOP, as they get updated they slow down, too often this year at the events I FTAA’d we had to wait for teams not because they weren’t ready, but because their laptop wasn’t booted yet.
-You cannot upload code through the field network. Don’t try it.
-Close other applications that connect to the robot that you don’t need when you get to the field (ex. webcam configurations, programming softwares, etc.)
