Can you access you controller using your external ip?
Click on the link with your ipaddress in the portal. What do you get?

I can access using the external IP. When I click on the link it give Reef Angel web portal will post a pic.
I notice my wifi is not working today, the wifi module is blinking blue and not green like yesterday. I keeps doing this then I need to setup the wifi module again but it keeps like "resetting" then I need to setup it again... What can be the problem?

If it work when you click that link, then your controller is good to go. It must be some other connection problem between the server and your controller.
Blue blinking means it is disconnected from the router.
Is your router far away?
What security are you using?
Try WPA2-PSK with AES encryption. Other people have had problems with other encryption and other security setting.

The router is 1.5m away from the Wi-Fi module. I'm using WPA2-PSK encryption. The portal updates sometimes, last update was 16 December 2013 22:01:50. Still gets Unreachable Address.
Think I must try to update the Wi-Fi module?

I can only think that it has to be some connection issue between your controller and the server.
As you can see, your controller does send data, but very sporadically.
I was also unable to connect directly to your controller from here and if I can't, the server will not be able to do either.
I can't even ping your ip address from here.
Can you pm me the latest ip address?

@rimai, Just visited Francois, his WiFi module is also not working. He changed over to the Arduino Ethernet, going to get me one too, then hopefully problem solved!

@rimai, The portal updated today again, but still gives Unreachable Address! I don't know how I did it but the Android App is now working on Away mode with my cellphone network, where it preciously only worked on my WiFi when I connect to my local WiFi hot spot, so I'm making slow progress!! I must say I'm very impressed with your new agent in South Africa! You will not get better!!! Vernon is going out off his way to help everyone and is going the extra mile!!!
Here is the thread for the local forum in SA.
