i had the same issues and i took copper tape and wrapped the usb cable, power cable, the bundle going into the control box, the inside of the control box, i ran my router power cord opposite of the control box and it doesnt touch the cnc frame. This has pretty much stopped the disconnection

Right on. Didn’t even know there was such a thing as copper tape. Will need to find that to. Thanks for the suggestions.

Other folks have eliminated disconnects by simply grounding the router.


I had an issue with my XXL losing connection occasionally I plugged mine into a surge arrestor and have not had any issues since.
