WiFi Connectivity

Post by TheSingular » Mon Oct 26, 2015 5:56 pm

I'm having problems with the wifi connectivity of the pbchess. Most noticable when using the online tactics feature.
Problems I have:
1. Enabling WiFi from launcher doesn't get me connected most of the time(Unless I got connected before using other methods below).
2. Enabling WiFi through KSM and then starting pbchess has a slightly better chance, but still fairly low chance.
3. Enabling Wifi through nickel and starting pbchess after gives me an almost guaranteed chance of successful connection, but somehow I lose the connection after a while.

Kobo Aura N514 Firmware 3.18.0
KSM 07 Update 4
pbchess 2015.9

I have the same problem with Pbchess on my Pocketbook. As for TheSingular, this problem occurs mainly when using the "tactics online" feature. After a little while of using Pbchess, I systematically get a "server error" and need to :

- Close Pbchess,
- turn off wifi on my Pocketbook,
- turn on wifi again,
- Restart Pbchess
- Restart Online tactics

This happen all the time I'm using "Tactics online", after 5 or 10 minutes of usage. This is kind of annoying, as you can imagine :shock: :)
On top of that I usually lose the benefit of my thought on a problem because even if I solve it quickly, when I need to restart Pbchess, I get systematically a "Too slow answer" with a negative rating when solving problem (even if I have solved it very quickly).
(Just for your information, I've lost around 80 pts so far because of this problem)


If this problem on Pocketbook could be solved that would be great !

I've improved WiFi in the 2015.12 version. It connects/disconnects automatically when network is used.

Kobo: http://pbchess.vlasovsoft.net/files/pbc ... 2_kobo.zip
Kindle: http://pbchess.vlasovsoft.net/files/pbc ... kindle.zip

Please try.

P.S. You can use this method with "known" access points (You have connected to them at least once from inside standard Kobo interface).

That version shuts down my wifi when it "scans" the networks to connect(And the usual problem continues when I've connected it to wifi before I started tactics).

Yes, sure. Before new year. I have no pocketbook just now. I'll do it when I return home.
