.......or just break down and spend $20 for a Wifi extender/bridge.

Thanks ... its okay ...Iíll stay with the JetPack. It seems to be the only WiFi source that works reliably wherever I travel. Iím just tired and frustrated having to troubleshoot WiFi stuff every time I go to a new hotel, airport or business.

 Hi Dennis,

Actually no, it doesn't make sense. Blocking UDP packets would prevent RemoteRig from working, but would have no effect on booking into a WiFi router.

UDP is standard for all streaming, so it can't be blocked. They can maybe block outgoing packets, but some VoIP and video apps wouldn't work.

Bottom line is they are telling you b.s.

The local internet provider reports that UDP packets are not permitted on their network. Maybe thatís why I can see their network, select in Microbit (where the remote rig reports itís connected), but the RemoteRig green LED continually flashes. Make sense?

I think Iím stuck using my Verizon JetPacks...

Thanks Mitch,
Dennis

Ok, Dennis, does this mean that you found the problem?

Also note that the internal WiFi card only has 2.4 GHz WiFi. If you also need 5 GHz, then
you for sure need an external WiFi bridge.

Hi Mitch;

OK, any thanks - I'd be happier not to have the local shack PC running so replacing the rotor USB adaptor with a serial one would make good sense..

Thanks again for your advice!

Hi Mitch, et al

I confirmed with my resort website tech support that they see no reason why the RemoteRig wonít connect to their network. Of course, they are unfamiliar with the RemoteRig but they had me connect (successfully) with my available devices (iPad, iPhone, Samsung phone, tablets and my Windows 10 pc via their network. As stated before, I see the resort WiFi nodes in Microbit ... but it never connects.

I thought Iíd try to connect the Microbit to the windows 10 pc, enabled as a hotspot. I confirmed the hotspot worked by connecting it to my cell phone and iPad. But, I donít see the windows 10 pc hotspot on the WiFi list within Microbit. It shouldnít be a signal strength issue as the two devices are only a meter apart.

Any other ideas/tests I can try?

I wouldnít be expending all the energy, except we will be at this resort for several months, and their bandwidth is far superior to my usual connection method.

Hi Duncan,

I suspected that CW may be the reason, otherwise it doesn't make much sense.

A USB to serial adapter will not work, because it needs a host such as a PC. You have a couple of possibilities:

- You can run Teamviewer
- You can swap out the USB adapter for the rotor controller for a serial one, then you won't need to have a remote PC running.

Hi Mitch;

Many thanks for your reply and my apologies; I should have said that I am 99% CW and the reason for looking at the RRC devices is the excellent CW support, specifically the local sidetone to eliminate issues with latency.

I guess there are two options for the rotator;

Teamviewer on the shack laptop and use the existing rotor control mechanism, or
a USB to RS232 serial adaptor for the DigiMaster rotor interface
