Hi Fred,

If it works from everywhere else and not from Verizon, then there is something with them that is
blocking you. I don't know Verizon, so I can't really help you, but make sure that you are not using
port 5600 for SIP and make sure that SIP ALG is turned off in the router if an option.

Otherwise, maybe someone else that uses Verizon can chime in.

What kind of radio is it?

The WiFi adapter for the RRC only works on the 2.4 GHz bank. You probably have the hotspot set to only 5.2 GHz.

My wife is the artist of the family, not me. I am busy with other things  ;)

If you ever get to Southern Florida, please look me up.

I joined 30 years ago and retired in 1996, but was under 50 and too young to stop working. So
I did startup internet stuff and ended-up at a company that got bought by IBM, so I retired from
them a couple of years ago as well ;-)

MS was a relatively small company back then and grew a lot while I was there. I basically took over
several new areas and built them up, for example what is now Developer Relations and then MSN.

I also am only QRV from Germany, but have only a 6 hour time difference.


Glad that you got it working again, Mike.

I had many jobs at Microsoft over the years ;-)

I was in Munich for only 40 retired and in Florida most of the time.

I doubt that an I/O setting could cause this problem. The Winkeyer emulation is known to
be buggy, so maybe you have run against a problem there. If you search the Forum for
NiMM and Winkey, you will find a lot of stuff on that issue.


Often Windows updates screw things up, so even if it was working for years, doesn't mean that it
will always work ;-)

Anyway, your settings look fine. The only suggestion I can make is maybe reduce the baud rate on
CAT. I run my systems at 9600, which is more than enough. I know this shouldn't make a
difference, but it can't hurt. Also note that COM1 in mode 6 or 7 must not equal the COM2 rate,
you can make it different if you want.

I am also ex-MS and worked there for years, but only in the German organization near Munich.

Read my message again and the link I gave you. I wasn't referring to your station. I said
that you have a WINDOWS problem, whereby the USB goes into power saving mode. The
link shows you how to fix that.

Mitch DJ0QN / K7DX

Hi Mike,

The problem is caused by a Windows setting, placing the USB in power saving mode. I suggest that you take
a look at the following presentation:
starting on page 26.

When I bought my Signalink years ago, I had a choice between two different cables to use. One went
to the microphone jack and the other to the data jack. In this case, it is the SLCABRJ4, which should
work just fine.

To be able to use the SLCABRJ4 instead of the DIN cable, then of course you need to open up the Signalink
and reprogram the jumpers to match, or use the correct jumper module (SLMODR4K). Did you do that?

I can't answer why your network all of a sudden is acting strange, you are going to have to figure that
out yourself.

I suggest using the process of elimination. The first step is to move the control setup to a different location
and see if the problem still occurs. If it does, then the issue is likely at the radio site, or the other way
around. Once you figure out which side it is on, you can check all network components to figure out which is
the culprit. I have even seen simple network switches go bad.

As for the control side using the Signalink: if you use the Signalink cable designed for the TS-480 microphone
jack, then that will work on the RRC. All modern digital modes just use audio, so you don't need the data jack.
You can do all the digital modes that way except for FSK, but the RRC supports FSK directly without an interface.

Adding a Signalink has no effect whatsoever on the RRC's and network, so it is a complete

I suggest that you just reboot the network components (routers, etc.) and your RRC's and
everything should (hopefully) work just fine.

I am not sure if you are trying to just use data modes remotely, or also at the radio site. If only
remotely, then it is much easier to install the Singalink on the control side and use it from there
and not in the station. All you do is to go to the control RRC's AUX/MIC and SP jacks and you
are in business.

Hi Bill,

One of the most important steps is always to change the web port and forward that in your router,
so that you can make changes and never have to go to the station. The couple of minutes to do that
will save you a lot of driving time!

It sounds to me that he has something configured that is "holding" the radio RRC to prevent you from
accessing it after he uses it. I suspect that he has under the menu "radio settings" the setting "auto
connect" set to yes. This must be set to no.

If that is not it, then I am not sure why that is happening. If he cuts power to his RRC, does that solve
your problem?

The ping reset will only take place if the RRC no longer sees a specified server, so that will not solve your problem.

I assume that you have access to nthe RRC's web page through the internet, as you should have
when you set it up. All you do is to go to the last menu on the left to restart the RRC and you are
in business. You can set a watchdog under the ping settings while you are at it.
