I’m setting up a second full system to be installed elsewhere tomorrow.
My original WiFi connected shake, R571C, was operating normally, was left running and was untouched. The laptop I use with R571C was disconnected from my modem and connected to the modem I’ll use in the new location.
I’d setup the separate modem plus Shake (RD2D7 connected by ethernet cable and previously tested okay at another location a couple of days ago) plus a WiFi sky brightness monitor that I was configuring. RD2D7 and the sky brightness monitor seemed fine. Data for RD2D7 was displaying on the helicord and also displayed via the ShakeNet app. Happy that this was all fine, it was formally shutdown ready to be installed at another location tomorrow.
On reconnecting my laptop to the original modem I can no longer connect to (R571C) rs.local. Sometimes I get the RShake icon in the browser tab, but the page is blank. For the most part I just get “Were having trouble finding that site”. I was unable to ping rs.local from my laptop using PowerShell, but data was still visible live in the ShakeNet app. I’ve rebooted the laptop and also used another computer. All internet functions are normal other than rs.local.
Not finding any clues how to proceed using the community pages, I just pulled the power from the Shake and reconnected after a couple of minutes. After 2 hours, there was still no rs.local connection but also no data appearing on the ShakeNet app. Pulled the power again
This time the data did start appearing in the ShakeNet app, but I still can’t get any connection via rs.local or ping rs.local from my laptop. All other internet connections from my laptop have been unaffected.
