FX30 - How to disable wifiClient connection attempt

#1

Hi all,

I have some questions hope someone can help with.

In building my app, I ported some sample code from the Data Connection Service test module so that my app can open the data connection.

I have noticed that my app periodically disconnects from the data connection, and I used the DCSHandler to reconnect the data connection.

When I perform the data connection, it sometime tries to connect to the wifiClient which is not configure so it fails after a number of attempts. How can I make it so that it doesn’t try the wifiClient at all, I’m not using it in my app.

Also, why does the data connection disconnect periodically? Is there a setting to tell it to stay connected? Or is it best for it to disconnect? What are best practices when it comes to Data Connection?

Here’s a log of when the app is trying to reconnect the data connection on the wifiClient…

Thank in advance!

Hi Eddie,
Could you please try stopping the wifiService:
app stop wifiService

This will just stop the service until next reboot.

Thanks Chris.

I tried your suggestion above but that didn’t stop the periodic data disconnections.

That was with the FX30s 3G model, now I’m testing with the FX30s LTE and I’m seeing different results altogether. I’ll post them in a new topic.

Thanks

Hi Eddie,
Could you confirm that the wifi is no longer attempting to connect?

Legato has a built in inactivity timer that disconnects a session if there’s no traffic for 20 seconds. Are you able to confirm if your app has not sent any data before the disconnect?

BR,
Chris

Chris,

The wifi is no longer connecting, but I’m still having issues. First can I ask you, how can I disable the wifiService so that it doesn’t start again after a reboot?

To answer your second question, my app is connected to a server via a socket connection and it is receiving and transmitting data every 11 seconds, so I don’t think it’s triggering the inactivity timer. Although, I would like to incorporate that functionality into my app. Where can I find more info on it?

The issue I’m still seeing is my app is connected and transmitting data as designed, all of a sudden the network registration is lost for about 30 minutes. In the log it show my network registration state handler reporting the registration state as “searching for network”.
Then roughly about 30 minutes the registration state changes again to “Home” and my app reconnects to the server and resumes data transmission at that time.

This is sequence is repeated consistently every 90 minutes. The only exception was this weekend, when after running approximately for two day, it stopped recovering altogether. My app kept running, but the registration state never recovered and stayed “searching for network” until I rebooted it this morning.

I have been searching on the forum for any information or any similar scenario but haven’t found any.

Her is my log. I included only one iteration of when the problem occurs since all the other ones are exactly the same.

Thanks.

Eddie
