RRC control will not connect to WiFi
« on: 2014-09-18, 22:07:23 »
I have a Elecraft K3/0 mini and RRC pair working great using wired Ethernet at the control end.
I installed the WiFi module and antenna, configured with the Microbit Setup manager.  However it steadfastly refuses to connect to my routers AP (Netgear DGN2000).  It can see the router SSID in the WiFi scan and I can add the SSID and password to the setup list.  But after reboot, there is no connection made to the router AP. 
The router does not see the RRC on the list of potential devices.  Have double checked that the MAC address of the RRC is on the permitted list of the AP.  Also trying WPA-PSK and WPA-PSK2.  Other WiFi devices work OK.  Ethernet cable is disconnected when attempting WiFi access.
Any idea what else I should check?

Thanks

You could connect a RS232 cable to COM1(38400,8,N,1) and use a terminal program to log what happens when starting the RRC and post that log here.
Always include type of hard/software and version when asking for support.

OK seem to have resolved this one.  The Wireless AP has to be set to broadcast the SSID before the RRC can find and connect to it it would appear.

Is the router's SSID visible? Is 2.4 GHz turned on?

Maybe the other PC is using 5 GHz and you have 2.4 GHz turned off?

Everythin is as before. I can scan wifi network 2,4 Ghz  and it show ok, I add it and put password but it not get IP from router( DHCP).
Another wifi PC ( 2 piece) works normally.
