SIMRAD GoFree Wifi

Hi All

Help please...

My SIMRAD GoFree Wifi has seems to have stopped working. The power light is on - but it is not broadcasting a SSID Wifi Hot Spot - and seems to not be acting as a router for the chart plotter and RI10 Radar Interface.

The chart plotter is connected - and there is no traffic between them - the LED lights are not flashing.

I want to reset the GoFree - but can not do that unless I can connect to it - and I can not connect to it without it broadcasting a SSID to connect to with my iPad.

Arrgghhh !

Any thoughts ?

Thanks

Tim

Re: SIMRAD GoFree Wifi

The reset button is under the round rubber bung by the other connectors.
