RE: [DVDongle] Re: Odd error while connected
I’m sure whatever the problem, it will correct itself eventually. The only reason that I was thinking that it may not be an internet issue was that I could connect to reflector 1C as well as reflector 16B and not have any issues. But when I tried to connect to VE6KM module C I would be disconnected within 15 min or so. However I would not think that the repeater was having internet issues as the reflector that they were connected to was not being disconnected.
Probably just one of those odd things that happen every so often that will drive us nuts if we think about them too often.
73 and thanks for the reply.
Hi Jeff. This is rarely about the repeaters/gateways/reflectors. It is almost always an internet issue. The missed keepalive message shows that packets being sent from the gateway are not making it to your computer. You might have to check with your ISP.
