I bought a WiFi extender so I could use AP mode on my SkyPortal and access the internet at the same time on the laptop from my telescope shed. I fired everything up, started CPWI and accessed the SkyPortal in direct mode. I entered the new router name and password, double checked them and submitted them to the SkyPortal. I got confirmation from CPWI that the info had been received and stored. I switched the SkyPortal to AP and cycled the power, just like CPWI said to. The SkyPortal has disappeared!
It is gone from the router list on both my laptop and my cell phone. I even used a WiFi sniffer and it is just not there. I have tried going back to direct mode and there is just no signal.
My First SkyPortal, a gray body, had a reset on the side opposite the switch. This black body doesn't have a reset button. I have searched the internet and cannot find a way to reset the black. I tried to reset the gray but it still kept the router name and password even after pushing the reset. I can connect to the gray and update the password and router but when I switch to AP mode, CPWI says it cannot get the mount to respond.
I have given up for the day. Had to walk away before I got even madder. I mean, I did exactly what CPWI told me to do and got hammered again.
At $100 a pop, this is getting really old. Other than SkyPortal, what could I use with a CPC and CPWI to control my mount?
ANY suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
