openSPOT(ver1) not connecting after FW -0141 upgrade?

Post by vk5bb » Tue Jan 01, 2019 3:44 am


In using my openSPOT the other day, I happened to bring up the Dashboard on my computer.
Whilst reviewing settings, a message came up advising of a Firmware update is available.
I duly downloaded the latest version, srf-osp-1.1-0141.bin

I rebooted the openSPOT into boot loader mode, but having done so I lost the BootLoader Window, so I had to reboot the openSPOT into bootloader mode.

I then copied the new file across, waited while the file was loaded, received the report "SUCCESS", waited, the openSPOT self rebooted into normal operation, announcing "Openspot profile zero ready", which has been the normal announcement.

However, though all seems well and all settings appear to be OK, but the unit now will not connect to a Reflector that is operation and has been my standard "boot up connection".

On the Status page, the Status shows "connector connecting".

On the openSPOT, the following leds are;

Status: rapid flashing red,
ACT: slow flashing green
Modem: no lights
ETH ACT: intermittent rapid flashing

Could someone advise what my problem may be and what might the solution be please,

Adelaide, South Australia.

The LEDs indicate that the device is working properly and it is trying to connect to the selected server. If you send us your exported configuration profile file to then we'll check your settings. You can export the configuration to a file by clicking on the Export button on the Settings page.
