Is your Glowforge plugged directly into the wall outlet?
Do you know the approximate date and time of any of the reboots? Does it happen every time you turn on your Glowforge?
It was happening all day December 9th, and occasionally for a few days before that. Since it eventually finished and came online, and the whole startup process seems to take an unpredictably long time, it took me a while to nice the unusual “reboot” during the process. The failure during the print was a bit before 3 PM that day.
I haven’t noticed it happening again the last few days.
In addition, it looks like you might have trouble with your Wi-Fi connection stability, and I’m wondering if that might be contributing to any of the issues you’re seeing. Could you do the following: …
My WiFi is rock solid. I do have some oddness in my internet connection, between my house and the internet, which AT&T has spent a few months not fixing. The behavior I see is that every minute or so internet traffic gets stuck for a second or so, then recovers. This only really affects streaming audio - video buffering and web browsing (over TCP) usually recover after a brief pause. Yeah, sucks. You’d think the company that invented lasers and telecommunications would be better at providing “fiber to the home”. But it’s the same connection the GF has been printing fine over for weeks, and it hasn’t changed that I can tell.
Since printing is behaving fine now, and has for a few days, I can’t really test whether switching to my phone as a hot spot would help - at best it’ll work the same. But next time I start seeing failures, I’ll try it.
