My school’s robotics team recently made the purchase of the vex robotics joystick and wifi-keys. We used EasyC to make a Tank 4 Motor code. Using a Male-Male USB cable, we connected the joystick and the cortex, and the code worked really well- we had full control. However, when we replaced the wire with the wifi keys, the robot did not work.
Here is what happened:
-When first plugged in, the wifi keys glowed blue, just for a second.
-The joystick LED was green, and the VexNet LED on both was orange. This continued for about 5-10 seconds, before both VexNet LEDs went red.
-The robot was unresponsive.
We have tried power cycling, switching keys, other codes, and re-doing the wire paring process.
Is there some sort of initialization process for the wifi keys that we are missing? Are they broken?
