No Communication in FRC Driver Station

In FRC Driver Station, the Communication and Robot Code is red, even though we are able to deploy the code.

Are you connecting through the radio

Being able to deploy, ping, etc. while the DriverStation does not connect is often a sign of interference from a Windows Defender firewall. Make sure all 3 firewalls (public, domain, and private) are turned off. I have found recently that one or more of these turns back on without any action on my part, so even if the little icon says it’s turned off go to the settings page to be sure that all three are off.
