Yes, I know this subject has been raised before but reviewing previous posts hasn’t shed any light on my issue.
I’m running a LaserScript 900 x 600 machine with a Ruida Controller. Network connectivity is via a Powerline adaptor (one end plugged into the Router, the other into a socket in another room). Both adaptors are on the same ring mains.
I’m running the most recent version of Lightburn and using both Mac and Windows PC’s (only 1 is connected to the machine at any one time). Both PC’s are up to date with patches and neither have any sort of connectivity issue to other wifi devices or the Internet. Likewise there are no outstanding firmware upgrades available for the controller.
A stable connection to the Ruida controller via Lightburn is sporadic. I can connect (right click on devices) and the Controller will be found but when I send a job… “File Transfer Failed. There was a problem…”. Right click and connect again (connection successful), send… same thing “File Transfer Failed…”. Reboot everything and try again… same thing. Then suddenly for no reason, a stable connection and successful transfer. I’ve also seen my transfer fail part way through. I have to say at this point, it’s not always that bad, I have periods where the connection is stable and transfer a success, which is great for my nerves
Now I’m not the most tech-savvy but I’ve turned off the Wifi on the Powerline Adaptor as WiFi is not required although it makes no difference if it’s on or off.
The building we’re in is fairly new so we could probably discount the wiring. Both PC’s are using Wifi to connect and speed isn’t an issue. There is nothing else connected via the Powerlines so could discount that as well.
I can ‘ping’ the machine all day long which would suggest it’s alive on the network but that connectivity via Lightburn is dropping. I don’t have the equipment to test for ‘noise’ on the line but having used these Powerline adaptors before I’ve not encountered the same issue.
I’m at a loss on where to go now (by the way, thanks for reading my ramble!!)
Great application by the way, we just need a cut tool in addition to the node edit tool
