Hi Alex,

I'll be on vacation for the next couple of weeks. I will be checking email and this forum and will respond as best I can, but I might be a bit slow and limited in what I can do until I get back.

Please report back on your experience with the WiFi dongle.

Doug,

No worries at all, enjoy your vacation! I'm in no rush I'm really just tinkering with the mill. Dongle should arrive tomorrow, I'll keep you posted

Hey Alex, it sounds like we have similar situations. I have a shop with 'spoty' wifi. I have the recommended antenna and I still have problems maintaining a connection. I'm using a cheap internet switch connected between my laptop and the controller's internet port (and no connection to my router). I have tabs on my browser... one for the wifi connection (http://bbctrl.local) and one for the 'hard' connection to the controller (http://169.254.162.169/#control). This 'hard' connection stays connected reliably and I'm now using it as my primary connection to the controller. It may work for you if you have close access between your computer and the controller.

I'm back from vacation. Do you have any updates on this issue? Did the WiFi dongle help?
