Re: mmdvm's connect ok and after a period of days or hours ignore pi-star.local access

Jason: Your suggestions have been most helpful, but to proceed, I need to ask some questions. 1. You say try pi-star 4.1 to see if that will fix my issues. My mmdvm uses a pi zero w. I don't believe there is a release beyond 3.4.17 for my hardware configuration. (Am I correct on this?) 2. You also s...

Re: mmdvm's connect ok and after a period of days or hours ignore pi-star.local access

I ran about 18 or 19 hours and then, even after changing the Auto LogOut and Idle Standby settings to "disable", the mmdvm's still went "ignorant" to Dashboard queries. So, I have just disabled WMM-APSD, as advised and will go back to "watchful waiting". I hope this works. I don't know where to go a...

Re: mmdvm's connect ok and after a period of days or hours ignore pi-star.local access

So far, the carpet bomb settings I configured left the mmdvm's still responsive overnight. This is the first time that has happened since I began struggling with this issue on this home wifi network. I'm going to do what my medical doctor calls "watchful waiting" for now. But I thank you, Craig, for...

Re: mmdvm's connect ok and after a period of days or hours ignore pi-star.local access

I don't know if this is the magic I'm looking for, but I did the following: Under Merlin's Adminstration>System Tab, I did the following: Under the Basic Configuration>Auto Logout setting, I changed the 30 minute default setting to be "disabled". Under the Service>Idle Timeout setting, I changed the...

Re: mmdvm's connect ok and after a period of days or hours ignore pi-star.local access

I flashed Merlin's latest release (384.13) into my RT-AC3100 router. I do like its presentation of info in its gui. No joy however...the two MMDVM's ignored all request for communication after only about 3 hours. I just got back from taking the XYL out for Sunday dinner and sat down at the laptop an...

Re: mmdvm's connect ok and after a period of days or hours ignore pi-star.local access

I agree that the problem is likely the router. But I don't see anything obvious in the wifi or lan settings that can be changed to change this situation. I thought the lease time length for the DHCP assignments could be too short, as it was default set to 86400 seconds (one day), but the longest I c...

mmdvm's connect ok and after a period of days or hours ignore pi-star.local access

I run up to 3 mmdvm's on my home wifi networks. They are widely spaced in radio frequencies in the 430-450 ham band and are renamed pi-star0, 1, and 2 for operating on Fusion, D-Star, and DMR in that order. They functioned without fail from June thru mid-October of this year at my alternate qth (on ...

Re: FIX FOUND...Cannot get my mmdvm to acknowledge my DMR radios.

After my original posting I found that several others have had similar problems in getting their mmdvm's to respond to their DMR handhelds. Others found success by adjusting the RxOffset and TxOffset in Expert mode to as much as 2500 from the nominal Pi-Star settings. (I assume this is 2500 Hz.) Thi...

Cannot get my mmdvm to acknowledge my DMR radios.

I'm likely missing something very obvious. I've been running DMR on my Shark openSPOT 1's for over two years without issue. I can successfully switch modes to YSF and D-Star and also run them without issue on the OS1. This works with all three "flavors" of radios and radio modes. I now want to run m...
