We are having trouble with the directions for configuring the wireless communication for the new control system. The direction states that all the subnets should be 255.0.0.0. The wireless router can not be set to 255.0.0.0 it can only be set to 255.255.255.0. After I set subnet mask to 255.255.255.0 for the laptop and bridge, the control system worked fine over the wirless. Anybody else have this problem?
The 255.0.0.0 subnet mask is in reference to whatever device you are using to program the cRIO (laptop/computer). I’m pretty sure that the default subnet for both the wireless router and the wireless gaming adapter are fine.
For all of those who are reading this post, I would like to remind all to try and limit the technical control system discussions on chiefdelphi and perhaps consider using the public control system forum that FIRST has put out on their website.
I had to use 255.255.255.0 for the router and an using 255.0.0.0 for everything else per the directions and everything is working fine.
We also used 255.255.255.0 for the router and 255.0.0.0 on everything else with success. I think the documentation needs to say something about 255.255.255.0 on the router, because the router will not let you change the subnet mask to 255.0.0.0
The latest version of the documentation says to use 255.255.255.0. See section 5.6.2 item 8b.
