Our team has been persistently dropping communication between our radio and our driver station laptop across Wifi.
Our connection is stable across direct connections between RIO and laptop (USB), from RIO to radio the radio to laptop (using only ethernet), but as soon as we try wifi connection, we have stable comms for a minute or two and then we immediately start dropping most of our packets.
We have the 1-26-18 NI Update Suite which was supposed to help resolve this issue (along with the new driver station and new roboRIO image). As of 2-18-18 we reinstalled the radio configuration utility and reflashed firmware and configured our radio, and updated our Eclipse (Java) plugins and the PDP firmware v14.
We also did make sure to disable RIOLog in case it was overflowing the radio with too many packets.
Much of this testing was also done with a blank Robot java program, and we have swapped out many electrical components and re-imaged / re-configured our radio and roboRIO.
At this point we are near out of ideas.
If anyone has insights on what we should try next, that would be greatly appreciated.
