I am having trouble updating one of my two RS+ antennas, which I use in base/rover RTK mode and integration with a GSSI Utility Scan ground penetrating radar (although the integration is working fine and is not the problem). This is my first large scale project with the two together. The Emlid equipment was purchased in the last two months from Event 38.
After having success yesterday, but some minor RTK fix issues, I decided to try an update for potential RTK fix improvements using a hotel wifi. Although the specifics are blurry to me, I ended up in a state where I thought I needed to flash it and then update. The driver install is successful with my Windows 10 machine (2.14 image) and I can begin the update process as detailed here and in the docs. I get to the point where I connect the antenna with my Android phone via the update app, I specify the network, and it tells me to connect to the same network. I do so and the RS+, after blinking fast, goes to the slow blue blink, which I believe means it has connected to some network.
At this point, I get nothing from my phone. I can’t recall if I automatically go I to the next step in the update app or I go back to search for a device or restart Reach View, but either way I get no reponse.
I am a long way from my home base and have limited resources here, but have driven around to numerous free wifi connections. Some are 2.4Ghz and some are 5Ghz (this was a question for me), but all produce the same results. All are open networks with no security. In the past I have used two home networks with security successfully, so I wonder if this is a problem.
I have used the Fing app and cannot find the RS+ on the network, although I remember in one case late last night I could see it - again with no success. I have also tried a Nvidia Shield tablet instead of my phone with the same results.
I have also tried connecting via browser on two Android devices and my Win 10 laptop. A remaining question is should I, as a failsafe, be able to connect via browser and IP address if I am generally running with the Android app otherwise. Anyway, has not worked so far.
I appreciate any help here. I’m in tough spot trying to complete a project and on a budget. I currently cannot collect any data because my Rover is inoperable. I might be able to offer screen shots and other info, but am on limited rsources in the field in rural Texas.
