I’ve got 3 sets of farmbots running next to each other. All 3 were running smoothly until I decided to update the OS when ver. 7 came out. I updated one of the farmbots, and since then I have been unable to connect through wifi. Using ethernet cable works without any problems. I’ve tried reflashing the SD numerous times, rebooting the FB, etc, but nothing works.
Basically after running the configuration, the FB reboots, the blue light flashes endlessly, and the farmbot-XXXX wifi continues to appear on the network. I am running these farmbots at a university, but it shouldn’t be a wifi/port problem since this particular farmbot used to run fine until the update. The other 2 farmbots are still running fine under ver.6.4.11. over wifi. I was thinking maybe it is something in the OS update that is causing it.
But then yesterday the problem got worse. When I plug in the farmbot to configure it using wifi, no flashing blue light appears anymore. No farmbot-XXXX appears on the network anymore. But when I use the ethernet cable to connect, the farmbot works perfectly.
I don’t understand what is causing this. Any help is appreciated!
