Lost connection

Post by staggley »

Good day about every outher week I loose conection with my opticsre. I am not sure if it is my router or the mate3s,I have to reset the router and go into the mate and enable the optics. Also at this time the mate always seams to be showing a low battery warning although I do not think this is the case. Thanks for any help.

If your Mate 3 is receiving a DHCP assigned address from your router, then these are usually provided with a reservation time in minutes. After the reservation time expires, that connection may no longer be valid or a new IP address is assigned by the DHCP server. You need to check this, reserve the assigned IP address for your Mate 3, lengthen the DHCP reservation time or assign a permanent IP address to your Mate 3 preferably outside the range of the DHCP server. These are the starting points.

There is also a timer in the Mate that can be set to reboot it at intervals. (Every 4 hours, once a day, etc.)
Information, you get not; if incorrect question, you ask..
