    The “reboot” command.

    Got the external antenna installed and used the command to change to external.
    The wifi_signal still shows “11” so I am still suspicious that the return code I am getting back isn’t what I think it is. I attached the readout from the Packet Sender. What am I doing wrong?

    I tested the auto-reboot command. I had it running every four hours which seems to keep it going but I want to try the antenna so that is currently disabled.

    Either way I should be able to keep it going all the time now.

    Which brings me back to my original post. I have two adapter boards that I will mail to anybody that wants them. I have a spare Photon (soldered to the adapter board) which apparently wasn’t broken so I have a spare now.

    Sorry, I’m not seeing the “11” response in your screenshot. Can you try sending the commands from the Particle Console and see what response you get?

    I’m sorry. I should have indicated that return values were coming back from my calls via UDP.

    IPAddress ipaddress = IPAddress.Parse(ipAddress);
    IPEndPoint endPoint = new IPEndPoint(ipaddress, 8888);

    Socket s = new Socket(endPoint.Address.AddressFamily, SocketType.Dgram,
    ProtocolType.Udp);

    byte[] msg = Encoding.ASCII.GetBytes(command);
    var result = s.SendTo(msg, endPoint);
    Console.WriteLine(result);
    s.Close();

    The screenshot showed what the packet sender displayed which I hoped would be more helpful but I didn’t see anything there either.

    I got on the particle console (via the web site) and the wifi_signal shows “100” for me. I do have the antenna attached and used the command to use the external antenna.

    I will leave it without rebooting for a few days and see what happens. If it still loses connection for some reason I can always turn on the scheduled reboot

    So far the GameFrame is still going with no reboot and still taking commands via udp. I don’t want to jinx myself but it has gone further than it has in a long time.

    Well it lasted a couple of days before it would no longer take commands. I am setting the scheduler to reboot twice a day to see if that keeps the unit running continuously.

    With the reboot twice a day the GameFrame seems to run all the time now. I suspect something in the code is the issue but I’m too lazy to go through it to determine the issue. For now it keeps working which was my goal.

    I know Jeremy doesn’t get paid and supports this (and the web site) with NO MONEY coming in which is a labor of love.

    Is it possible for anyone to donate some money to offset the costs of the website or the support supplied? Maybe a PayPal account to send money to?

    Just a follow-up. The GameFrame has been running without an issue for 4 weeks now. I am rebooting once a day via task scheduler/command line which seems to keep everything going.
