Lost My Connection

All was working fine with OpenCPN receiving data from a Marine Traffic AIS receiver on my Win 10 desktop. I had problems with my wireless adapter card and had to switch to an ethernet connection to get the internet back. Since that happened I no longer am getting data sent to OpenCPN. I deleted the connections config and redid it with no success. I tried different port numbers and even deleted OpenCPN and reinstalled with the updated 4.80 version. Nothing seems to work. The connection to OpenCPN on my laptop still works fine.

Re: Lost My Connection

Ok, for those of you who are interested, I fixed my problem. Apparently OpenCPN did not like the change in local IP addresses after I went to an ethernet connection. I was able to go into the router config and change the IP address back to what it was prior to the switch. Now all is back to normal. I still don't know why this happened as I completely removed OpenCPN and installed the new version from scratch.
