1258N WiFi Question
« on: 2015-02-11, 21:57:11 »
I just installed a 1258N WiFi unit in my 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

From what you describe I do not understand what you are doing, but in general if you move the Radio-RRC from the control site to the radio site, you probably need to change the SIP-contact in the Control-RRC and you need to setup portforwaring in the router at the Radio-site.

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.
