  • cMoo92 yes that was it.  I told the Skydrop to delete all WIFI settings and restarted it and now everything is working fine.

      lonestarcanuck I tried the delete and restart process, and reconfigured wifi access. It worked for about an hour and then disconnected. I’ve done this several times now with the same result. Does anyone have any other approaches that worked for you?

    • dgirvin Mine is working fine.  make sure you have enough signal strength and you can see the network as an option.  also make sure  your sprinkler has the latest software.  

      I checked everything on my old network.  than disconnected from the OLD network and than added the new one that is on EERO

      lonestarcanuck thanks! I restarted the beacon (3’ from the Skydrop) and all seams to be working well now. Seems like some kind of order of operations issue at my end ;)
