Topic: Problem Finding the Network
I have the 3.5" Infocast device and it has a problem finding any networks.
Once it does connect, it will stay connected for months with no problems, but if the power goes out, it will not reconnect without many, many tries, power cycling, etc. Sometimes it takes many tries over days before it will find any network to connect to.
When trying to connect to an existing connection, I get the familiar "wlan(0) device not found ..." screen.
If I try to create a new connection, no networks are found. The unit is in the same room as the router and several networks should show up as they do on phones and tablets in the house. So it is not the network.
At one point I thought it was a bad connection in the unit, so after taking it apart and reseating the small PCB, the result was the same. The next day, after power cycling it several times, it finally connected and worked for several months before another power outage today.
