Hi, I have 3 numitron clocks, all have been running faultlessly. I was recently sent a new router by Plusnet, and now I can't seem to connect at all!  Firmware is V6. Please tell me i'm doing something stupid! Cheers, David

What are the clocks doing? Are they getting stuck with one of the under-tube LEDs showing blue and going into Access Point mode?

Is the new router's SSID (network name) and password the same as the old one?

Are you sure that DHCP is turned on in the new router? I would think it would be on by default but you never know.

Look into it later when the dust is clearing off the crater.

Thanks for your reply. I have factory reset one clock. Network and password are different on the new router. The clock shows up in my "available networks" as ESP_216397 - I can't connect to it.
Upon power on, clock does the following:
led led led led - hour & minute led's
Green Green Red - tubes: Net_up
Green Green Blue AP--On (long pause)
Green Green Red Red - ntp up
displays Version - 6
starts counting
I am afraid I don't know how to tell if DHCP is on or off - I have looked at the router settings and don't see any mention of it.

Ok, so the clock is in Access Point mode. Makes sense since the router's SSID and password are not the same as on the old one. DHCP is not of any interest at this point.

This sounds a lot like what was going on in your old thread from a couple years ago. Have you tried the things that were brought up in that thread & eventually lead to success?

No problem... glad you got it working.
