Joystick Controller Problem

I have the new VEX net joystick controller, and when I am using it, it constantly disconnects and all the lights turn red. Does anyone know what this means or how to fix it???


Try it with the A-A cable in place of Vexnet usbkey.
If that works, then many potential issues can be discarded.

If Vexnet 802.11 doesn’t work, try it in a different place, like outside in the parking lot, or at home. Some schools have Cisco wifi with adhoc network denial, which has been demonstrated to kill Vexnet. You can use the MacID utility to find the MacId of all your Vexnet keys, then give that list to the school IT department and ask that they allow those keys to work.
This issue can be a real problem for schools who want to host a gameday.
