My Glowforge had been stable forever but recently I have non-stop connectivity problems. I have spent far more time debugging recently than actually getting prints done.
I have been through the setup cycle over and over. It will say I am connected, then go to calibrating, then go to offline. Sometimes it cycles back to calibrating for a while. By doing this enough times we have managed to get a couple of prints done in the last day but mostly its just a lot of wasted time. Now it’s 12:45 AM and mother’s day projects are not going to happen…
I have tried cycling my router, changing my wifi channels, using 2.4ghz, 5ghz. All the combos, going through setup again each time. I have no problem connecting with MacOS, iOS, or Android. I am using a wifi signal monitor and trying to use optimized channels - seeing a signal at ~-51db from the WAP which is ~15ft away (through a floor).
The decision to ship a ‘pro’ tool with no ethernet port continues to baffle me. I would just like a device with the connectivity options and stability of a raspberry pi.
