Title: Kulp f8 PB wifi
Post by: duaneandkathy on August 15, 2022, 10:04:24 AM
getting controllers out of storage and upgrading to FPP 6.  All seems fine except one Kulp F8 pb.  The wifi shows a low strength on the connection.  It does connect and work, I would just hate to depend on it this way.  I have tried both external and linux wifi drivers and replaced the wifi adapter all without any change.  The controller is in the garage with the wifi access point.  All other controllers show full strength.  Any suggestions?

This is likely due to the way the wifi adapter is reporting the network strength.  If you hover over it, does it show xxPCT where xx is a number or does it show -xxdBm ?   If percent, then the graph is using a different metric that the adapter's driver reports.  It will be changed in an upcoming update to use a more appropriate metric. If you are really curious, you can go to Help - troubleshooting commands, then the wireless section and you can see the data your adapter provides.. There is link quality and signal level likely represented by a 90/100 or 60/100 or some figure like that.  Currently the graph should represent the signal level but will be reporting on link quality.
