Answered: Vexnet

Hi there! We’ve recently acquired a brand new out-of-the-box vexnet upgrade. After following proper protocols and installation manuals we’ve stumbled across a problem.

The vexnet upgrade attached to the vex microcontroller, when turned on, would turn on with all three lights solid (red,yellow,yellow) and would refuse to search for the vex controller.

However on occasional attempts it would search for the controller (blinking yellow on vexnet light), and it actually would connect with the controller (double green lights on both microcontroller and controller). And we do mean on very occasional attempts (1 out of 10).

This sounds like a memory corruption. A possible fix would be to re-flash your firmware. Please contact us directly here at IFI for further assistance:
