RPi is an excellent platform. I’ve hosted CNCjs on it for a year and successfully limited the sawdust my fancy laptop has to breath. But all of a sudden it drops connection within 10mins of operation. The code is already loaded onto the RPi so program execuation can continue but I lose all link to the laptop and thus can’t load the next program.
So a bit of background:
Rpi 4 with a hardwire ethernet cable to the router which emits garage wifi, laptop on wifi. Use:
in laptop browser to connect to RPi a safe distance away from the dust machine. From there I can upload .NC files, jog machine, complete control.
Like I said this has worked for over a year, where I can upload to the RPi start the program and restart the laptop and regain connection with disrupting the machine or Rpi. Now once I loose connection it isn’t until I restart the laptop, RPi and router that I get the connection back, for 10mins…
I’m about half knowledgeable on this stuff but I’m a little stumped as to what changed and how I can rectify/prevent this in the future.
