In the beginning of the season, we set up our Classmate to communicate wirelessly with the robot, and it worked fine. Last week, we put a password on the router, because it was broadcasting free internet, and it was unacceptable. The DS still worked fine. 2 Meetings ago, I finally updated the dashboard (reinstall). Near the end of the meeting, the crio would have to be re-booted twice to show DS comms, but Windriver could still connect and download. after a few reboots, the DS quit working, and we got a No Comm error. After a reboot of the whole system, It still did not work, so I fiddled around with the networking settings, and was forced to use wired because it was not doing anything. The robot worked with the normal reboot, and video feed was achieved (and other controls of the robot). last meeting, It quit ALL networking capabilities. after 1.5 hours of trying to fix the problem, I just use a different laptop as the DS (wireless too!)
when it first stopped working properly over wireless, I was debugging a remote dashboard connecting to port 1165 to get dashboard data (C#.net) (wireshark said that the packets were fine)
the dashboard was getting socket in use exceptions, Even after full system reboots (3 total)
dashboard problems not solved after wired
on the last meeting, I disable all interfaces, firewalls, AntiVirus, and extraneous task icons in Developer
all Interfaces were individually configured, and turned on and off
wireless appeared connected, but all pings of IP’s failed.
when wired, ping of correctly configured IP addresses failed, even router, which it was DIRECTLY connected to.
rebooted 3 times
on DHCP, router table showed no IP belonging to it
Developer laptop (not classmate)
entered team #
got and plugged in new joystick on last meeting that was Identical to a joystick it had had before
all other computers on network connect fine
router is team default+DHCP starting at 10.4.51.6+Wireless on both bands+Wireless password
Is there anyone who has had this issue? this (at least the wired) definitely needs to be resolved before competitions
