I'm new here but just recently installed my wireless screenlogic protocol adapter kit. I haven't been successful in getting it to work just yet though.

I've tried a few things and i think I'm close. Red light is solid on the adapter. Power light is solid on the wireless transmitters with flashing tx and rx. I can see the adapter on my network (and ping the ip address with a response) and i can even run the updater, which works successfully as well.

However, I can't connect using Screenlogic Connect on my pc (same pc the updater works with), I can't connect remotely with the xx-xx-xx number either. I also tried using my phone app and the app finds the protocol adapter locally, but won't connect, it just sits loading forever..

Any help will be appreciated!!

I can't really help, as mine has just always worked... Even when I installed a new Protocol adapter it just worked the first time.

When you get the following set up page, does the IP address auto-populate under "local systems"???



I have heard of people having their inside transceiver too close to other electronic equipment that jams the transceiver.. Just moving the transceiver a few feet often solves this issue.

As a test you can run a 4-wire cable from the EasyTouch to the Protocol Adapter and see if it works.. If so then the problem is with the transceiver links..

Thanks,

Jim R.

Thanks Jim, i do get that screen on the screenlogic connect, but the local system is blank. I may run that cable and see if that solved it too. It's just strange the updater finds it right away.

I have it going over an Orbi Mesh network, but for the software i downloaded it from the Pentair website. I did also try it on a normal router with the same results though.

OK -- I just know there have been issues with the Mesh as the addresses are not recognized.

@ajw22 has some experience in addressing the past issues on the forum with this.

I had the adapter at 10.0.1.x on my standard network, but also got it to go to 192.168.1.x on my mesh.. i could see it on whichever one i had it connected to on the updater and also run the update successfully. So i think it was okay on that front.

Update #2.. after getting back from vacation, I called pentair again and finally got to someone that helped by logging into my pc. He determined that the protocol adapter was bad. He couldn't run his diagnostics on it and it wouldn't hold on to the pool rom.

They are sending me a replacement protocol adapter now and we shall see if it works when i get it in.

I appreciate the help with troubleshooting!

Has the new adapter worked? I am having the exact same issue.
