Network LAN connector instead of Wifi?
Another newbie question I'm afraid.
Where my Brain is located I have easy access to a wired LAN port. My Wifi has connected fine to it, but I wondered if there is any advantage to leaving it connected to the LAN instead, in terms of reliability. Normally if I have a wired LAN option I would use it over Wifi, but the setup for the Brain didn't offer the option of leaving it on the LAN after the initial setup, it just set up the WIfi and told me to remove the LAN connection.
Geoff T You can also let it plugged in. Only difference is that the brain then using two ip adresses as there is no priority to disable the wifi if the lan is used.
The wifi setup is neccessary because the brain stores the credentials for the remote, so if the remote gets updated or unable to connect, you need to restow the settings just for the remote, not the setup.Reply
That's seems dumb, why would you make the remote re-validate config from wakeup? Nothing should/would change with out a "re-setup".
That's probably why the remote has terrible communications issues when waking up and it's always beeping and throwing errors etc. One of my brains to remote is not close to each other. Relying heavily on wifi.
If you look in the remote settings/about, it only knows about the WiFi IP of the brain. I'd guess I knows nothing of the LAN connection.Reply
