Connection Question - Multiple V4's

Good Day, I've been burning myself out trying to get this fixed. Read multiple threads but I'm still stumped. I was proficient in the V3's but just recently got back to working with the V4's. I have (2) V4's that I'm trying to connect to my router. I originally thought it was a router setting (LinkSys) but I'm now on router #3 with a barebones...

Scripting Attempt # 1

Hey All, I've been working on my big R2 recently. It has a Sabertooth 2x25 for the foot drives and a Syren 10 for the dome. So that leaves me with using serial commands to control the dome.

Block User Feature For Forum?

DJ, Is there anyway to add a block user/ignore posts feature to your forum? I know it's your own code, so you must be able to customize? I'm sure myself and a few others have a few people we would like to erase out of our lives. There is a disruptive force on this forum that needs to go away.

Multi Board Support For Robosapien?

Is Robosapien only capable of working on board 0? Trying to add him to my multi-robot fleet but it doesn't look like I can use any other board #'s to run him? It will be a bugger to switch/re-program the current robot on board 0 so I can make him work. DJ thoughts?
