I’ve been using three Reach RS+ receivers as network rovers by using mobile wifi hotspots, which has in general been successful. I’m using these as part of a university course so am having students try using their phones as the mobile hotspot.
I’ve been finding that about 2/3 of the time it works great, but a 1/3 of the time the Reach just doesn’t connect to the mobile wifi hotspot even though it sees it as an available wifi connection. You type in the hotspot password and then nothing happens. I’m doing this using a second device/laptop.
I haven’t been able to see a specific pattern (i.e. phone type, service provider, etc.) as to when it works and doesn’t. It’s worked for me both on various iPhones and Google Pixel so far.
Anyone have any insights into which phone types, providers, etc. in the U.S. cause issues with using a hotspot with the Reach RS+?
Right now, they are all on 2.14 version.
