After the boot sequence, it ends up in Solid green, which is “Hotspot mode”
I connect to the hotspot (2.3 and 2.4), config page runs at 192.168.42.1, Tests are passed, I input the Wifi parameters, Save and it confirms “Saved” then I power Cycle it. After the boot sequence, goes to Solid Green. I go back to the config page, there’s no Wifi info saved, I re-enter, check it’s correctness… Save… and cycle repeats.
On 2.8, everything happens the same, with the exception that the hotspot does not appear anymore.
meanwhile, I went to an even lower 2.2.6 and managed to make one work. Meaning, even if the Led was showing solid green, it was connected and visible on the network. So the wifi setting were sticking but the led was misleading me. Grrr
Currently flashing 2.2.6 on the second one, repeating the process
And it might hand out address with only one digit at the end, and this can cause connection issu with Reach.
If you have another wifi router you could try this, unless you have controll of your network and can config an ip range something like this: 192.168.1.100 to 192.168.1.254
Oh, gotcha, I can’t change that, maybe if I could get it’s MAC address somehow I could make an DHCP reservation so it connects there instead. But the other two unit, work ok. Clearly the units are not identical somehow
