Cannot Connect

Hi all,

I hope anyone can help us ...:)

My 8 yo and I are trying to connect our so much expected EZ-B v4 but haven't succeeded so far.

When looking at the connection script we get the following:

connection failed: system.net.sockets.socketexception (0x80004005): No connection could be made because the target machine actively refused it 192.168.1.1:23.


I haven't found another available port apart from this one, and don't know if I need to change the wifi configuration to enable this one?


Any help will be very much appreciated!

Thank you,

Julian and Sofia

@Dave, you are absolutely correct that setting static (or really dhcp permanently assigned) ip addresses to the EZ-B v4 is tje way to go in infrastructure mode long term, but the original poster is still trying to get an initial connection to the ez-b, where a static IP on the laptop in the wrong subnet will make the connection impossible.

I am having the same problem with connecting the ez-b v4 like sofia.
boot up, chime, message, and blue light blinks like it should. it shows up on my network tab on my asus windows 8 laptop. refuses to connect. I don't have a static ip setting for the ez-b, and my ipconfig is saying its 192.168.1.1 like normal. firewalls disabled, no antivirus running, just says "cannot connect to this network" everytime i try. i also tried this with my desktop with wireless dongle to no avail.
I've read the tutorial on how to connect and browsed most, if not, all of the forum posts that talk about this, as well as watched all of the tutorial videos regarding connetion. none have been able to steer me in the right direction. everything assumes I am able to connect to the ez-b normally.

has someone figured this out? Is there something in my network settings (on both computers) that I haven't disabled/enabled?

thank you.

Can you provide me with a diagnostic report?

Report Link

Additionally, can you answer these questions...

1) How are you getting an IP address if the wifi is not connecting?

2) Do you have static IP Addresses set on your network adapters?

3) By "just says cannot connect to this network", are you referring to the WIFI connection in windows or the EZ-B is verbally telling you?

4) You are certain AVAST is not installed?

Hi OakMot,

Pitifully I have tried everything that the nice guys here suggested, unsuccessfully. The next step I think (and given you're experiencing the same problem, both Windows 8) I would suggest that we talk to EZ-Robot because it looks like they don't look at this forum at all.

I've sort of given up for now (it's been 4 months since we started trying with my son) but I would love to see this working.

Maybe anyone at EZ-Robot around and eager to help?

Thanks!

@sofia_wo
@oakmot

I see nobody has asked you nor have you mentioned in your previous posts ,so can I ask, the laptops your using to connect to your EZ-B4's, what makes are they? They wouldn't happen to be HP or Compaq's would they?

EDIT:
Sorry @oakmot. I just re read your post and I see you said you have an Asus laptop.

answers to questions:

(just to clearify, im not incredibly tech savvy. I can navigate my way around a computer, but im far from understanding most of what it means. windows 8 is making it much harder for me as well, as its like fighting myself out of a wet blanket to figure out how half of this thing works.)

1) I can connect to wifi. cmd is telling me my ipv4, which is 192.168.1.2 and my efault gateway which is 192.168.1.1. its just not connecting to the ez-b.
2) im not sure. still not entirely clear on what a static ip is. all I know is the ez-b is not anywhere in the network settings. the only place i can see it is in the network tab in the bottom right corner when it tells me what networks are in range.
3)when I try to connect via the network tab. the ez-b has said nothing except that im "apart of the ez-robot revolution", which I'll believe when I get it connected.
4)100% positive I am avast free. I tested negative for avast on both my computers.

We have been having issues with computers using the RaLink Wireless Network Adapter. Until now, the issues we have received are using the RT3290 chipset. Your computer is using the RT2860 chipset. This is the first we have heard of a connection issue with the RT2860 chipset.

I have forwarded the diagnostic information to our WiFi Manufacturer - who is currently investigating the issue with RaLink Wireless Adapters. I'm going to make a modification to the diagnostic report generator and have you create another report for me, when I tell you. I'll see if there is a way to tackle the problem from the software side in Windows.

As for a "quick" fix, the solution has been to use a USB WiFi Adapter, rather than the internal one.

However, I am not giving up on identifying why RaLink adapters have issues with the BlueGiga WiFi module on the EZ-B. I appreciate your patience

#37  
The other "quick fix" is to log in to the EZ-B and change it to client mode using a tablet, smartphone or another wireless PC which can connect to it. This then lets it sit on your existing WiFi and provided the PC can access the network (wired or wireless) it can access the EZ-B.

I provided a quick guide to do this when I got my first V4 here.

#38  
The wifi dongle I have for my PC is also running off of asus tech, so in assuming its having the same chipset issues of connecting to the ez-b as my laptop.
Is there a cheap brand wireless dongle recommended that I can pick up?
#39  
Yes, I solved my problem with a TP-LINK which was recommended by the forum. It is cheap and now I can surf the net and run my robot at the same time.

Wicked. I'll pick one of those up tonight after work. See how it goes.

Little frustrated, but I understand how technology can be a fickle mistress and I appreciate you guys helping.
#41  
The good news is once you get the EZB4 in client mode, it should connect to pretty much any PC that is on your network... Wired or wireless.....

@Oakmot, you can multiple your frustration by 100 and that's how we feel:( As a very emphatic person, I am always looking from the consumers perspective and this issue is super challenging for me, personally. It's something that RaLink has done incorrectly in their WiFi drivers, which have affected our product and many others. You haven't experienced issues with the other products affected because they aren't pretty rare devices as well.

We have heard that Bluegiga has identified the issue and is working toward a solution. However, the solution will require not be backward compatible because it will require a physical change to the controller. I don't know when a solution will be yet...

#43  
righty-o. bought the dongle, now its connecting, but its saying "connection is limited". blue light still blinking.
cant access the ip in my browser, but its showing its connected.
step in the right direction i suppose.

now I have a bit of an understanding about static ip's. neither the laptop or the dongles IP are set to have static addresses. so where do I go from here?

@DJ sures
totally understand. I've seen what lengths you've gone to make it easily accessible and easy to learn (I had a bit of a DJ Sures youtube video binge to prepare myself for the impending time sink of building a robot), and you cant help but watch as people struggle with the technology and let it out on you when its not your fault.
so I appreciate your input on my situation as well as your involvement in the community as a whole with our troubleshooting.:)

Ok. I figured it out.

The dongle itself didnt work, but I was gonna get something like that anyway so it could have a dedicated computer for the ez-b.

@Rich was right. the tablet did work. Luckily I had an android tablet lying around
and I was able to download the program (from the ez-robot website, not the google play thing, couldnt find it) and install it onto the tablet, connected to it, and changed the settings that way.

@sofia_wo
I'm really sorry you are struggling with this. as for me, I got a bee in my bonnet to get a robot built, and not everyone has the patience to do it.
If you don't have an android tablet (and Im really sorry for pretty much putting an ad on the forum), I got mine at Deal Extreme: http://www.dx.com/c/computers-tablets-networking-399/tablets-1409
Really cheap electronics with free shipping. I got my tablet, which was mid range pricing there for 60 USD. Im sure something even cheaper would do the trick for you and your son. or even borrow one. I dunno. If you need help while its still fresh in my memory, let me know. I'll walk you through it on skype or something.

Ok so looks like we won all the tickets.

To start with, our ezr software was an older version and didnt have the report option.

So we updated now.

Also, my laptop IS a HP.

Also, we did have Avast running (not sure anyone told us to stop it until now)...

IPV4 is 192.168.1.6

Default gateway is 192.168.1.254


Below is the report.

Hey guys, all good with the frustration. I moved to scrum mastering - pm'ing many years ago but work in IT so I deal with frustration on a daily basis too (only that IT "won" the fight and I am a simple admin person now, not a tech fan anymore) hehe

... this is why my son cannot catch me day and night to resolve the EZrobot issues ...;)

Thank you for your help, we'll get there ...

Hi @Sofia_wo,

It turns you have the the very Network adapter that others were unable to connect with: The Ralink RT3290 802.11bgn Wi-Fi Adapter

That being said, you still have a couple options for connectivity:

- You can still connect via client mode, @Rich has a good tutorial here

- You can use a USB WiFi dongle, just note that @jdebay mentioned that if you can only use this method if you disable both the Realtek ethernet and Ralink Wifi Network adapters.

Hope that helps!

Hi, yes... Trying to find the SSID details now to switch it to client mode.

Thanks,
