DVSwitch Server (and Pi-Star Hotspot) Dropouts When Network Watchdog Expires #mmdvm_bridge


Joe Hussey
 

 
DVSwitch server (and Pi-Star Jumbo Hotspot) experiencing dropouts that coincide with "network watchdog has expired" error reported in MMDVM log files. Dropouts appear to be random. Any suggestions on a cause, where I should look next or a possible solution?

This "may" have coincided with my recent change in ISP (new router, etc.) from AT&T to Starry Internet.
