This has been a problem of late. Most of the time it would clear up after about 15 minutes or so. Recently it has been just getting longer and longer. I initially thought it was a network issue, as I just switched providers. But I have since configured their router to allow my home network a clearer path, and still I get this loop.
It has, as in the past, ended the loop. I still feel there is something else going on. I have no other problems with any other devices on my network. I can stream High Def videos without the slightest buffer, stream music, watch my security cameras, etc. Monitoring network activity, I can see the glowforge’s data packet leave when it tries to ‘center’ the gantry. That burst isn’t even remotely large enough to be impacted by my network speeds. I even prioritize the glowforge for faster speeds and it still doesn’t help. I just have to wait it out. This points to either a hardware issue (Network card) or software issue.
