Here are the ideas that the manufacturer gave me to try:
in our latest firmware,
we have a "back door" command that you can use to reboot the module

you use "set sys debug 0x80"
and then "set a r 86400" // 3600 * 24 seconds = 1 day....
but this only works if you are NOT connected to the AP.


you could set the sleep timer to sleep after XXXX seconds and then wake right away:

set sys sleep 86400 // sleep once per day or maybe much more often? 3600 = once per hour
set sys wake 1 // wakes right back up after 1 second.


We do have a new build ver 2.33 I would like you to try. You can get it via "ftp u wifly7-233.img"


They recently changed their FTP server.
The FTP server's IP address has changed. Please refer to the following to point your module to the correct IP address:

my_WiFly_module

The command you need to issue is "ftp u wifly-233.img" after you point the module to the new FTP server.


Check to see if any one of those help you.

I just tried the first two commands . We will see how it goes. I usually do fine untill the power gets interupted at my AP. After that I have to unplug and replug the controller to get it to reconnect. I just want it to reconnect automatically once a day.

I have had several power outages and the wireless consistently reconnects on it's on. The only Wierd think is that the portal does have any history past July 27. I used the first two of the commands above. They are clearly working.

Ok here is the final verdict. Using the option below works:

Input this code into your wireless module:

set sys sleep 86400 // sleep once per day or maybe much more often? 3600 = once per hour
set sys wake 1 // wakes right back up after 1 second.

I use 3600 seconds to put my wireless to sleep and to wake it back up every hour. I used the davemotion wireless utility advanced screen to upload the code to my wireless module. Be sure to use $$$ before each command and enter the save command to save the code.

The first option above interferes with uploading to the portal so don't use it.
Since enabling this option, I have never lost a connection for more than one hour and my portal history is intact.

I thought I had done this correctly but I'm guessing not as can not log into the portal anymore.

When I did it I did the $$$ to get the command mode line then typed:

set sys sleep 86400 // (enter)
then it would go out of command mode and would have to log back in and do $$$ again to get it in command line then entered set sys wake 1 // and saved the config. Did I only save the sys wake command?

If you use get instead of set, you can pull the information store in the memory.
