    Ah that makes sense! Thanks Steve. I'll see if my WIFI started working. The original problem for this post is that my HeaterMeter stopped connecting reliably to my router. Will update this if there is still a problem. Thanks for the help!

    OK I tried a new approach. I programmed an SD card and put it into a new Raspberry Pi 3B and attached that to my working HeaterMeter. It connected to my router and when I go to the devices page for HeaterMeter (http://heatermeter.com/devices/) I see it there, but it gives a timeout. I notived that the IP address is different now.

    Is there some Firewall setting I need?

    There's no firewalling on the HeaterMeter at all, and if you're on the same network as the HeaterMeter, your router's firewall shouldn't be involved (since it only blocks things coming from the WAN side). The exception to this is of you have your wireless network set to "Client isolation" which prevents two devices on the wifi from being able to talk to each other entirely.

    When you check the IP address of the device you're connecting from, is it on the same network as the HeaterMeter? (they have the same first 3 digits usually like 192.168.X.something, and X would also be the same between the two).
    I'm that HeaterMeter guy what ruins everybody's free time.

    Bumping this as it is the same scenario I have. On a LAN connection the IP is up but the device is timing out. Also not able to get WiFi to connect.

    I recently built a new HM 4.3 with a Pi 3B+ and couldn’t get it onto my network. I hooked it up via Ethernet and ssh’d Into it to find it spitting debug errors for the wireless drivers. It was so bad, the cpu was nearly at full load and the web interface was suuuuper slow.

    The end solution for me had me use the HeaterMeter snapshot WITHOUT preconfigured WI-FI information. I hooked it up via Ethernet, and setup the WI-FI in the web controls. Everything worked fine after that.
