Thanks for the details. As you can see, the android device is not connecting (yet). Once it does connect, the current RaceCapture configuration is automatically read from the device and is shown in the setup view.
If you can't connect, whatever you see in the setup view, including config files you load, does not reflect the actual settings on RaceCapture. This is very important to understand.
What we should first do is establish your android device is truly connected to the WiFi network of RaceCapture.
Here are some suggested steps to try:
* Put RaceCapture on your workbench and connect using your laptop with USB.
* Enable the RaceCapture WiFi Access Point, and either set no password, or set a password that's at least 8 characters. (e.g. 12345678)
* On your laptop, *write* the config back to RaceCapture. You can read the config back to ensure the settings stuck.
* On your laptop, you can then check the system status via main menu. and observe that the AccessPoint is enabled
* Now check if you see a green blinking light *and* a blue blinking light. Green = GPS; Blue = WiFi activity
* Now, on your laptop, check the application log to verify that the WiFi adapter is being initialized. Go to Setup, Logging, and click the check box to 'poll logfile'. This will read log messages from RaceCapture. You can paste the log messages here as a reply.
* If you've gotten this far, switch to your android device. Go into Android settings and turn off WiFi, then turn it back on again. This will cycle WiFi at the Android level and ensure it is properly enabled.
* Try to connect to the RaceCapture network on your Android device.
* Once connected, try running the RaceCapture app. You can do this while still connected over USB on your desktop.
Thanks. Let us know what you find out. The important part is the blue blink, as that is sending out a 'beacon' for the Android app to find RaceCapture. The output of the log will be helpful to see as well.
