We finally found the issue (we couldn't create the problem here locally). We'll test it tomorrow, and if it works i'll provide you with a fix to test it as well.

Hi all,

here the same isuse:

the following test are OK:

100, 64byte, random, 100k   ok
100, 64byte, random, 1m           ok

100, 64byte, ox5aa5, 100k   ok
100, 64byte, ox5aa5, 1m           ok

1000, 64byte, ox5aa5, 100k   ok
1000, 64byte, ox5aa5, 1m   ok

Rest stops with error "no pockethernet device found"

latest firmware on device
latest App on iPhone io 10.2.1

any idea?

best regards

Bert

This is my experience as well.   Would really like to see new version of the app and/or firmware soon.  It's been quite a while on 2.0 firmware and it's never had the same reliability as 1.0 

Thanks for your efforts.

Hi all. Sorry for the delay, the initial fix we tested created problems with the iOS app which is why we had to postpone the release. Below the BETA release that should fix the BER issues. I'd be grateful for your feedback.

Windows:

Linux:

(For installation instructions, just follow the guide in the forum. http://forum.pockethernet.com/index.php?topic=105.0)

I am happy to report that Firmware v24 solved all my issues.  The Pockethernet stayed connected the entire time and I was able to run multiple simultaneous BER and other tests, all without any errors and using various different options, etc.   

The iOS app did crash once after multiple tests in a row. But it might have been because I was trying TDR tests while connected to a live port.  But generally it was just fine.

One other thing I noticed is that sometimes if you turn on the VLAN test, you can't get DHCP, but I think that is a function of the Cisco switches I was connecting to for the IP tests.   

All-in-all, great work.  I think this is finally very stable. 

Now I'd like to see some of the other feature requests and software improvements like: Faster Blink Rate, Printed Stickers for the case, IPv6, Beep in the app for test complete, and a Rubberized case option.
