Hey @dc42 thanks for implementing the wifi re-connecting functionality in 2.02! (I'm running RC3) I've been doing some testing on the web connectivity...
At first I thought it was working perfectly and it was until...
I switched on my Pi running motionEye (which is normally running 24/7). The moment that the feed came up and started displaying in Duet Web Control the drop outs started immediately exactly.
I never thought the cause of all the problems I'd been having could be the web feed and the Pi just happened to be switched off. Sure enough, deleting the link to the feed in the user interface settings and, boom, the disconnects stopped.
Interestingly I have just put the web feed url back in (same url as I cut it previously to put in clipboard) and I am now not getting drop outs. I will continue to monitor and test this though.... EDIT: after about 5 mins of writing this email we're back in the state where it disconnects and reconnects.
I can open the web feed on a separate browser tab and it continues to feed as expected during the drop outs.
Could there be an issue with taking web feeds and it causing DWC connection drop outs?
My Duet config
Firmware Name: RepRapFirmware for Duet 2 WiFi/Ethernet
Firmware Electronics: Duet WiFi 1.02 or later
Firmware Version: 2.02RC3(RTOS) (2018-10-17b2)
WiFi Server Version: 1.21
Web Interface Version: 1.22.4-b1
My network config
EE router in house on which my machine connects.
Netgear EX2700 extender in garage on which Duet WiFi and motionEye both connect.
Running Mac OSX Mojave & Google Chrome (Version 70.0.3538.77) but the same thing happens on Safari (Version 12.0.1 (14606.2.104.1.1)) and on my smart phone (Samsung s8+ on Chrome).
note: I work in IT and am pretty confident it is not my network as I work from home and use it constantly without any other issues.
I hope that helps?
