I know this kind of issue has come up before but apart from re-starting the sync module yet again (Going to be tricky from 100 miles away) there seems to be no good answer to it yet.
I had to unplug the router and so of course the WiFI (via LAN) access to internet went down while the LAN carried on without it.
LAN is a Devolo Magic2 powerline plus Mesh wifi Network so all exactly the same SSID’s passwords and settings are automatically synchronised between Wifi access point units and there’s a close by access point to connect to)
When the Router was reconnected literally everything in the house came back without attention except for one of my two Sync modules. ‘Offline’ according to the APP (IOS). and on inspection the module has solid blue and flashing green
My other sync unit was fine by the time I looked…
BUT, looking at the (shared by both sync units) WiFi access point stats the “offline” module has been connected to the LAN for 34 minutes, showing and updating Tx and Rx bandwidth stats while the working sync module has been connected only for 5 minutes. The Offline access point had not been connected to any of the other WiFi access points according to their logs (and some are just in range).
Is there some logic that if a module connects to a WiFi access point but then can’t find the Blink servers it just gives up ?
Or is there a re-try timer that isn’t working on one module ? ?
Resolved for now (hopefully!!) by unplugging, replugging, removing the module from App System list, Factory (10 Sec at power on) resetting sync module and re-adding the module, the Wifi information, forcing it onto the nearest access point, and re-updating the firmware . . phew
This seems like far too much hard work for a temporary loss of internet . . .
If there is something unavoidable about this can’t the sync modules be set to just restart themselves after (say) each 30 minutes of being unconnected to Blink’s Servers
