Auto re-connect of tablets fails (master-slave)
#1
Reconnection of tablets (wifi group) is not working reliably. We have to create a new group and join again almost every rehersal / gig.
Re-connect on start is ticked on...
Any way to get this functionality more stable?
Thanks,
Marc

I don't use this feature so can't speak from experience.

If your tablets are Win 10 then the inactivity timer may be kicking in (this is common on desktop pc's where is program is busy for long periods with no user interaction).
So, in Win10, try one or more of the following-

  1. Extend the inactivity timer to 1 hour say (both Screen and Inactivity)
  2. Change the power options (you would have to experiment with what it offers)
  3. Set the wifi device so that it doesn't have power saving enabled (Device Manager| Network adapters| "Your Wifi adapter"| Power Management)
As you have multiple tablets, you might have to make sure all have the same settings (in case one failing is enough to trigger a problem on the rest).

Note: you could test by reducing the timers to a short time (3 mins say) to see if the wifi does in fact fail when the inactivity kicks in.

PS: On rereading you post, it sounds as though you are having the problem each time you start a session rather than during a session. If this is the case, the above probably doesn't apply.

Hello Marc,

I'm going to need more information:

1) Are you connecting using WiFi or bluetooth? Bluetooth is more unreliable in general, so I might suggest switching to WiFi if possible using a hotspot.  I can look into the bluetooth reconnection logic some more if that's what you are relying on.
2) If you are connecting using WiFi, are all tablets being signed the same IP every time? If not, this is going to cause problems with the automatic reconnection code as it saves the IP address of the previous master.
3) Are all tablets Android? or do you have a mix? Is one tablet always the master or are you switching this each time?

Thanks,
Mike
