w-10 and FlashAir ?
w-10 and FlashAir ?
Finally got the FlashAir card working (again) and noticed two things.  First, I have an adjustable bed with remote control and it seems to interfere with the FA wi-fi signal if right next to the bed.  Second, I don't recall having to unplug or reset the card for card to begin to transmit on wi-fi.  If I just shut the machine down and go upstairs Angry IP scanner detects no signal.  If I unplug and re-plug OR remove and reset the card it is detected and OSCAR gets the data.  Wondering IF maybe a setting on the card is not optimal?

RE: w-10 and FlashAir ?
Thanks RED;  Searching around I found a response from you that I believe answers what I am seeing: "The power to the SD card is constant as long as the unit is plugged in.  Using the On/Off switch has no effect on the SD's power. The SD card is reinitialized each time it is inserted in its slot or the xPAP's power is re-energized Basically the SD card sends a burst of information during this initialization that contains the WiFi name and password but doesn't check to see if anything as actually listening to it.  A lot of times what happens is a power fluctuation/loss can cause the router to drop all connections. The router takes a little longer to go "online" during the initialization phase than does the SD card.  This means that the SD card has already broadcasted its info before the router is ready to listen, so no connection is established. A side note is that the xPAP power supplies are so well regulated that the xPAP SD card may never see the fluctuation/loss of power, thus never re-broadcasting its info."
