Cerbo GX wifi issues

Hi all,

so the cerbo GX and Wi-Fi connectivity including connection to a mobile hotspot.

i have been reading for a while about some Wi-Fi issues, so thought i would pop in my experience.

most cerbos i have fitted, do not want to connect to Wi-Fi or a hotspot. however I have found, that if I roll back the firmware to V2.56 I do not experience any connectivity issues.

this seems to be working for me and the last 5 cerbos fitted connect without any issue.

I had also same problems with it. Always while connecting to a wifi surfstick. My own systems runs perfect this way, Some other of my customer don't like it. Changing from surfstik to a router and connecting via LAN solved the problem sadly in an expensive way.

Having the same issues. Upgraded to 2.63 and now I can not see my system on the vrm.

Are there plans to fix this?

Are there any plans to increase the cerbo BT interface?

Hi Steve and others here: there is an issue with the Cerbo wifi when having a GX Touch installed.

Details & solution here:

My apologies for the issues to all of you.

I checked our logs and changes since Steve noticed that rolling back to v2.57 makes it better; I can’t see a reason for that.

I am having similar issues. Can not connect to phone hotspot and doesn't find other wifi networks in close vicinity.

Any progress to fixing this issue?
