1258N WiFi Question
« on: 2015-02-11, 19:48:55 »
I just installed a 1258N WiFi unit in the remote RRC.  I have my K3/K3mini working together on my home QTH WiFi including CAT and winkey.  When I switch from the home WiFi to the WiFi I will be using at my remote QTH (wireless Netgear AC770S), the RRC recognizes and seems to connect to the router, but the radios do not connect.  I get three ascending tones. 

I can follow all the steps in the RRC manual with no problem.  I don't see anything that needs to be changed from one network to another, but I must be missing something.  Any suggestions?

Thanks,
Dick

Dick,

You must use the external IP number (or dynamic DNS address) when outside of your home network
to access. In addition, the ports must be forwarded.

If you need help, I can send you my networking checklist that walks you through the process. Drop me
a short mail at dj0qn (at) darc.de if you want the checklist.

Mitch and Mike,

Thanks for your very prompt replies.

Mike:  I am trying to get my final configuration working at my home QTH now.  It works OK on my home router.
Mitch:  I have your checklist.  I used it to get my initial config working.  Thanks.

I have set port forwarding for ports 13000, 13001 and 13002 for UDP protocol on my cellular router. 

This has been a very long process.  I have no experience with networking and I'm finding it difficult getting through the checklist.  I'll try again tomorrow

Dick

Hi Dick,

Then make sure that point 13 is carefully followed in my checklist after enabling dynamic DNS under point 12.

Let us have the status page of the RRC's after attempting a connect, so we can see where the problem lies.
