Max BR1 - WiFi Wan connection drops


#1

Greetings. First post here. We have been installing Max BR1 devices on yachts for the past few years without any real issues.

I have a BR1 which seems to lose its WiFi WAN connection on a two hour schedule. Here’s a sample of the log file:

Anyone seen this sort of thing before?

I suspect the Shore Wi-Fi has a two-hour session limit and then it boots you, forcing a new session to be established.

I suspected the same thing. I’ve been in touch with the ISP that provides the hotspot and they claim that they do not kick connections off after some period of time. I’m going to go back to them now with this log file and see if maybe they have a different answer
