Re: ASIAir Pro Wifi range problem

Hi domsel, In a posting a while ago, ZWO has mentioned that they are working on allowing ASIAIR to use an external WiFi adapter. You might check with ZWO to see when/if they will release it; that can help you decide whether to spend money now on a travel router. But it looks like you need to spend m...

Re: ASIAir Pro Wifi range problem

>> The Pro via WiFi is the one that’s really slow. I would have expected the Pro to have longer range and better throughput. I am afraid that it might be exactly the opposite, domsel. The original ASIAIR enclosure (as do the default Raspberry Pi 3 enclosures from Raspberry Pi Foundation) is plastic....

Re: ASIAir Pro Wifi range problem

domsel: If I were you, I would first determine if the problem is the WiFi connection, or if it is something else. Start by connecting the ASIAIR's LAN port directly to your router. This can be done with either the original ASIAIR or the ASIAIR Pro. This can also be done in the daytime and indoors. C...

Re: Goto problems with HEQ6

In addition to a firmware change, Daylight Saving Time has also recently changed, so you might want to look into that (or the UTC offset) too. If you are using ASIAIR in conjunction with SkySafari, you can see if SkySafari shows that you are pointed near the Zenith (i.e., the Meridian line in SkySaf...

Re: ASIAir Pro Wifi range problem

Hi Michel, For now, I would recommend adding a "travel router" (ones that run off batteries and also have at least one Ethernet port). Configure the router to extend the home network, and connect the ASIAIR directly to it with a short Ethernet cable. This way, you will be using the transceiver and a...

Re: Access files stored on the usb drive over network.

Re: Incorrect Longitude Sync with AVX & GPS

By the way, I notice in your signature that you are running ASIAIR 1.4 with Firmware 3.37? That should not work. As far as I can tell, v1.4 app needs firmware 4.55.
