I really can't answer that, because it is a router specific question and there are hundreds of
different routers on the market.

All I can say is take a deep breath and carefully look at you router settings, since it must be in
there somewhere.

Worse case, I would be happy to take a look using Teamviewer if we can arrange a time. It would
be best to contact me directly at dj0qn (at) darc (dot) de to arrange something if you can't find the
problem yourself first. I am at my Florida QTH this time of year.

That does not change anything. You should still make the test somewhere else, preferably someone
using a different service and router.

I would suggest trying it from a different location. Both WiFi and ethernet will go over the same
router, so you should try someone else's router. There is always a possibility that the problem lies
at the control end.

At least that way you know for sure which side and can focus on locating the culprit.

You will need to do a lot of testing to figure out the problem. Use the process of elimination to
determine what the problem is not and go from there.

I first suggest that you move the control RRC to another location and see if the problem occurs. It
may be at the control location and not at the radio location. Once you have determined which side
it is on, then you need to see what is causing the problem.

Look at the RRC's status page to see if there is an error message when the problem occurs. Sometimes
this will tell you which port is causing the problem. Changing that port may solve the problem.

Often it is a bad router or other devices in the network that are causing the problem. Only by using
the process of elimination and first taking all possible problem causes out of the equation will allow
you to narrow down where the problem is.

The only thing I can tell you for sure is that you are looking at the wrong culprit; the problem is with your
network and not with your RRC or its settings. These settings will allow you to partially compensate for a bad
network connection, but they will never solve them.

Good luck and let us know how you are doing.

Dick,

Using a different network card will give you a different IP number from your router's DHCP server. This
new IP number has to be port forwarded, but you can just edit the existing one in your router.

Dennis,

I'm afraid that the easiest method will be to change PTT to another option than CAT for WJST
only. I would try to avoid VOX, especially for time critical modes like FT8. However, if you do
want to try VOX, make sure that RTP is set to continuous on both RRC's.

Hi Dennis,

It seems to be a driver issue with your WJST. I suggest that you deinstall it, reboot, then reinstall it to see
if that solves your problem.

If you Google "Hamlib error", you will find a lot of people that have that problem. It seems that it may be a bug
with the TS-480 driver.

Dennis,

Did you try rebooting your computer? Sounds like a Windows driver problem. You may try
deinstalling and reinstalling the software.

Hi Chuck,

Your USB is going into power saving mode. Go to the following presentation at:
https://www.kkn.net/~n6tv/N6TV_Dayton_2019_Everything_USB.pdf
and follow the instructions starting on page 26.

Drop me a short mail at dj0qn (at) darc (dot) de and I will send you my networking checklist
that walks you through the process.

Hi Dennis,

Did you reboot the PC? If so and you still receive this error message, I would ask on the WJST support
forum for assistance.

BTW, your setting is wrong for PTT: it should be on CAT and not DTR.

Hi Dennis,

Actually, having helped a few people to setup WJST, I can say that it was the easiest of all the
digital software I have setup to get working. I suspect that one of the others caused a Windows
conflict. Did you try rebooting your PC and then try setting it up? Also make sure that the
newest version is installed.

Hi Dennis,

Thanks for the summary; I am glad that you got it all working.

Just one input from me: the Signalink normally uses VOX for PTT. This is not always practical
in a RemoteRig setup, so instead I suggest that you instead use CAT for PTT after setting CAT
up first. I know that you did that, but I just wanted to point it out.

If you must use VOX for PTT, then make sure that both RRC's have RTP tx mode set to continuous
to make VOX work. Due to the inherent VOX latency, I really suggest implementing PTT via CAT.

Dave,

Are you using a serial to USB converter, or a real serial cable?

If using a serial to USB converter, you should make some adjustments in Windows as described in
the following link:
https://www.kkn.net/~n6tv/N6TV_Dayton_2019_Everything_USB.pdf
starting page 27 are important tips.

If using a Prolific converter, I highly suggest throwing it in the trash and getting an FTDI one to replace it.

I'm afraid so! Maybe you saved the settings in the past and that will save time.
