Hi electron647,

Thanks for your post.

I’ve done it on Windows, but it gives me an error and I don’t know if it’s because I’m not communicating with Heltec or if I’ve done something wrong.

issue on the screenshot:

other issue:
on command “restart_device” - missing forward slash
wrong local IP 192.168.1.57 in bot.js

Thank you in advance for your any help.
Regards

My hotspot miner is like a brick and does not respond to any software messages or hardware actions.
I suspect software upload failed, on another Heltec I had the DC card 100% full

----------the issue was sent to Heltec yesterday----------------------------
I think hotspot is full sync, i connect hotspot to o the network around 2 weeks ago by Bluetooth + ethernet cable , but without location just for sync. 2-3 days ago i connect by Bluetooth and i allocated address, but after that I waited for sync and the hotspot go offline.
Even if there is no sync, I should log into the dashboard and be able to connect to Bluetooth

I cannot log into the hotspot by local IP but on the router i can see hotspot. I Can ping hotspot IP.

troubleshot which has been checked:

  1. On other browsers I have the same,
  2. when I check on other PC is the same.
  3. Shutdown hotspot not fix the issue.
  4. Restarting does not turn on Bluetooth (power led not flashing) and I cannot connect to device.
  5. The Reset button on the back does not change anything.
  6. press power button not respond - hotspot not shutdown
  7. press and hold power button not respond - hotspot not restart
    power - solid blue all time (no flashing after hotspot start)
    system - solid white all time
    blockchain synch - solid orange all time
  8. disconnect Ethernet cable and reconnect (there is light on the cable)
  9. restart ISP router
  10. restart PC, check on mobile
  11. disable antivirus
  12. check incognito mode in chrome

Now every 2-3 minutes the fan starts up for 60 second.

Thank you for the quick answer.

IP is correct, i can login to the router i can see hotspot name and hotspot IP.
I Can ping that hotspot IP 192.168.0.34
Angryip show me this, the same IP .34 but another device looks similar.

  1. Shutdown hotspot not fix the issue.
  2. Restarting does not turn on Bluetooth (power led not flashing) and I cannot connect to device.
  3. The Reset button on the back does not change anything.

I removed the IP assignment on the router, but the hotspot’s IP remained the same .34
9. restart ISP router, does not change anything.

You asked me to power down the device, I did it.
IP is the same 192.168.0.34 - “This site can’t be reached192.168.0.34 refused to connect”.

Now for the final step, i will check a new version of the bot an let you know.

Thanks

When i try to login by browser i have this:

Thank you in advance for your any help.

Hello, can you please download the last version of the bot, i fixed the typo.
If you have git installed just run git pull inside the folder or just replace the file bot.js by the new one.

Regarding the error you get , are you sure this the right IP of your miner?
Check on your router interface to be 100% sure or use a program like Angryip.
If it 's the right Ip , switch off the device for 2 min (electrical cable unplugged) and start again.
Try that and let me know.
