Re: Open spot keeps connecting disconnecting

In any case, Norbert, I'm just going to give up at this point. You've been a great help at least attempting to assist me with getting my OS1 working again. I did change out the USB cable (again), but to no avail. I'll just have to resign myself to not being able to get on DMR for a while longer. Tha...

Re: Open spot keeps connecting disconnecting

Maybe you should put the openSPOT to the allowed devices list by checking the checkbox and clicking on the Add button. Clicking on the "Add" button only brings up a dialog box to add another (separate) device; "Edit" just brings up the dialog to edit that particular device insofar-as its MAC addres...

Re: Open spot keeps connecting disconnecting

To use the USB serial console, the device must be connected with a USB cable (which supports data transfer, not just charging) to your computer, to have the USB virtual serial port device appear in your operating system. Please try using several other USB cables. You can also test a cable with your...

Re: Open spot keeps connecting disconnecting

If I could get some insight as to how to configure the terminal software (PuTTY, etc.), then I might be able to (with your assistance, of course) get this working.
I also posted a better picture of it in the Facebook "OpenSpot / OpenSpot 2 by SharkRF Users Group".

Re: Open spot keeps connecting disconnecting

My apologies, Norbert, but I know this must be frustrating for you (I know it is for me ). I know you're trying to help, but everything you've suggested so far hasn't worked. I know when I first got the openSPOT(1), it worked just fine on my system (same modem and router I'm using now) and then I ha...

Re: Open spot keeps connecting disconnectine

Your screenshot looks blurry and I can't see anything. Can you please repost it? Can you please answer my questions? Is your openSPOT connected to the exact same router as your PC with the Ethernet cable? Is the ETH LED green on your openSPOT? Have you tried connecting the openSPOT to other ports o...

Re: Open spot keeps connecting disconnectine

Slow (1Hz) flashing red Status LED means that the null connector is active. This is the default case when you've done a factory reset. Activate another connector to initiate connecting to a server. Fast flashing red Status LED means openSPOT is trying to connect to the selected server, but it can't...

We sold every openSPOT1 unit with a USB cable plus a wall AC adapter with a USB slot on it.
I still have the original box and mine didn't come with one. Just the hardwired AC adapter.

Re: Open spot keeps connecting disconnectine

Please try using another USB cable, as the one you use now probably does not support data transfer, only charging. The USB cable supplied with the openSPOT1 supports data transfer. If you don't have that, then try using a mobile phone's USB cable, as they usually support data transfer. That's what ...

Re: Open spot keeps connecting disconnectine

Disconnect the USB cord from the wall adapter and connect it to your computer. The wall adapter is 'hard wired' (cable not removable from it). I found a USB cable with the same (type of) connector and plugged it into the computer; it's still not showing up on my system as a USB device. I tried down...
