I could fix the problem. Here is, what happened:

This was the problem:

    all voltages inside are ok.
    the yellow LAN LED is on after reset, together with green LED, green is blinking fast at start, then blinking green with short interrupts.
    I can not see the Rig on my LAN Net.
    The rc1258 does also not communicate over Wifi (I took the Wifi board from my rig).
    I can set IP adresses over USB port with the setup-manager, I can update firmware and so on, but can not communicate in other ways "outside".

What was wrong:

All three setups which were stored inside the RRC were damaged. None of them startup the rig fully up.

How Did I found out:

I connected a serial cable to COM1 at the front side of the RRC1258.
I installed putty on my PC.
I opened a serial connection over a RS232/USB Adapter.
Settings: 38400 Baud, 8N1

There I could see, that the rig tried to start up, but it evend did not come up the LAN and Wifi setup part.

How Did I fix it?

I reseted all three setups (each one was different, and chosen by the CW Poti in the front) to the factory setting, using the setup-manager.
With the factory setup the LAN and Wifi setup worked again. From here on you can set your IP and start configuration over the internal Webpage.
I sent all three setups new to the RRC1258 via the webpage.

Problem fixed!

Thanks to Mike for his help to prevent the Rig from beeing ruined.



Dear OMīs,

we are using more than 15 RRC-1258 rigs in our club.
This is the only one, which does not work. Serial Nr: 14606
the problme shows up at every boot start. I can not start the RRC1258.
Anny suggestions?
The rig is still in warranty - so I donīt want to play around too much with it.

 Thanks and best 73s,

Hello dear development team, dear OMīs!

We have a blind OM in our club, in fact he is the chairman of our club here in straubing, U14.
For the operation of our club-owned two remote operated QTHīs he is using an RRC-1258 MkII.
To switch the QTHīs profiles, he has to (re)boot the RRC1258 and then turn the CW poti so, that the correct LED is on for boot.
To find the correct position with the knob is not the problem. I modificated the knob and the housing, so he can feel the knob with a "nose" to a small matching point at the front panel of the housing.

The problem is the time elapsed, before he must turn the potentiometer.
If he turns too early, it will not be noticed by the remote rig. Also not if he turn the cw knob too late.
It would help him very much, if the AD Converter reads out the poti anyway during startup to check for the wanted profile, and not only after it has been changed with a big turn within a certain time during startup.

Or there is another possibibilty for him, to get a accoustic signal, when the turn of the poti should start. But as far as I know, there is no piezo inside.

thanks very much, your help is highly appreciated.
