frequently blocking/rebooting

#1 Post by megamarco83 » 16 Oct 2019, 14:19

hi, in this ESP (nodemcu) i still have many blocks. ESP can't be reach and i have to power off and reboot manually to become working. it happen every 3 days.
but i see that also during the day i have at least two automatic reboot.
Close to this ESP i have other two and only this one has this problem, so i would like to exclude connection problems.
how i can discover where is the problem?
i also try to flash a new nodemcu but nothing happen, i also try to use a wemos d1 mini, but same situation.

this is the configuration:

if i would like to not use PCF and use directly GPIO to control 8ch relay + 1pulse + 1ds18b20 what GPIO you suggest to use?
thanks

The ESP8266 does not have enough usable GPIO pins to accommodate 8 relays and other sensors.
See: https://espeasy.readthedocs.io/en/lates ... on-esp8266

What build version are you using?

Known reasons for rebooting:
- Bad/unstable WiFi
- pulse counter plugin (is using interrupts)


To improve resilience against wifi disturbances, you could force the WiFi to B/G only (Advanced settings, bottom page)
Also setting the WiFi channel to a fixed channel on the access point may improve stability.
See the described settings here: https://espeasy.readthedocs.io/en/lates ... l#advanced

hi, i copy the info about the building:

Code: Select all

Build:⋄	20103 - Mega
System Libraries:⋄	ESP82xx Core 2_4_1, NONOS SDK 2.2.1(cfd48f3), LWIP: 2.0.3 PUYA support
Git Build:⋄	mega-20190903
i use fixed wifi channel
i do not think that the problem is related to a bad connection, close to my esp there are two other esp and them never lost connection.
i have pulse counter and i put it as first plugin (i read somewhere to do in this way)
unfortunatly i need it.

what i never tested is to force to b/g channel

I have about 30 esp8266 at home. With a local serveur , i periodically check that all are responding. I had a lot of issues with some of them as they often disconnect and reconect. Since I forces all m'y Wifi AP tranmitters(4) at home to work in Wifi 802.11n only and not mixed mode b/g/n, the complete set of esp8266 works fine.

Hi can you explain better for me how you set up your router configuration to avoid the disconnect problem of esp8266? Thanks

My assumption:
- Fixed WiFi channel
- No mixing of B/G and N on the same network
- Force WiFi No Sleep
- No Eco mode
- Core 2.6.0 build (maybe not the last nightly, since there is a bug report about the need to upgrade build toolkit since the last merges of core 2.6.0)
