F16V4 Wont Accept Valid DNS????

Hello All 

I recently had my halloween show running and had my F16V4 and F16V3 chugging along where i had set a static IP and used the DNS on both.

At one point something happened where the V4 "froze" (ie lights were on from a part of a song and did not go away while the rest of the show continued playing normally).  i ultimately did a reboot of it from my computer.  at this point i lost access to the controller completely from the computer only to see that when i went to the controller it had completely zeroed out all the network information.

i tried to put the info back in manually and when i went to the last step of save and reboot, it would freeze.  none of the buttons on the remote worked etc so only thing to do was unplug and replug back in.  

tried then to update software to 11 using the micro SD.  this went fine. no problem...  tried again to manually enter all my network info and same thing.

so buddy suggested adding my home network to the DNS to see what happens instead of  voila... success.  back and running and i can see on computer again.  from computer tried to reset to and failure once again. 

anyone have a clue as to why it will no longer accept a valid DNS?  for my purposes this does not seem to be an issue going forward but thought i would share since something has clearly gone wrong :)



No idea why it wouldn't take but you could try or and see if it accepts either of those.  They are all valid public DNS servers.


What is your gateway address on the V4?
