Here’s a weird one — I think! While carving a piece it appears the machine didn’t move up (Z) before moving to the next location, resulting it crashing into the piece and stalling out everything, including the router (Makita 701c). I was right at the machine and killed everything right away.
After getting everything reset and doing some testing (jogging machine around), I noticed that every time I powered the router on, my computer would lose connection (using gSender). I tested this numerous times, router off all good, router on: drop connection — either immediately or just after a few seconds of jogging around.
Things I tried:
- updated gSender (1.1.7)
- reboot computer
- replaced USB cable
- checked all wired connections
- turned off all other items nearby (heater, dust box, etc…)
Everything was pointing to the router (when powered on), so I went and bought a new one (same Makita 701c), bolted it on and been running fine ever since (knock on alder).
So… did the router crash cause it to create electromagnetic interference?? is this a thing??
